Clean the Germs off Your Handbag

Have you ever thought about all that your handbag goes through daily? From exposure to toilet floors, kitchen counters and public transportation to name a few, handbags pick up many germs with use. Scientific tests have proven that a handbag can carry more bacteria than your average toilet seat! Gross right? Then if you think about how bags are handled, it’s easy to see how these germs could be transferred onto other surfaces and spread contamination. We have made it our mission to find an easy way to clean the germs off your handbag.


Here at The Handbag Spa, we care about healthy handbags and have sought to eliminate the risk. The team have worked with the world’s finest leather chemists to create an antibacterial cleanser – proven to kill 99% of common bacteria! Anti-Bacterial Cleanse is the U.K’s only proven anti-bacterial killing product for this application, specifically designed for handbags.

Dr Peter Barratt of Initial Washroom Hygiene, scientifically tested our product and their results show that:

“The Handbag Spa Anti-bacterial Cleanse clearly has a positive hygiene effect on the surfaces of leather, cotton and synthetic fabric bags. It has demonstrated a clear and significant reduction in the levels of bacteria-related contamination on the surface of a variety of bags that I tested; typically showing better than 99% reduction.”

Not only that, but Anti-Bacterial Cleanse is effective on ALL types of leather and fabric – meaning you’re whole handbag and purse collection can be clean and bacteria free!




– Simply mist Anti-Bacterial Cleanse over the area / bag

– Leave to air dry

Please note: You do not need to rub this product in or spot clean for Anti-Bacterial Cleanse to work.



Be prepared for any emergency spillages and eliminate nasty bacteria on you beloved bag with The Handbag Spa’s ‘On-the-Go’ wipes. These antibacterial cleaning wipes are a much safer alternative to using baby wipes, which can damage your handbags finish and thus create a build up of product that’s hard to remove. These effective and affordable wipes are also great for cleaning handles and removing the build of dirt on linings.

Like Anti-Bacterial Cleanse, On-The-Go wipes are safe to use on all types of fabric and leather. So they can be used on your whole handbag and purse collection!



– Simply open the sachet and take out a wipe

– Massage onto the bag, ensuring you work on a full panel at a time

– Leave to air dry

Please note: this product may darken unfinished leathers when first applied, but the leather will dry back to it’s original colour.



Anti-Bacterial Cleanse and On The Go Antibacterial Cleaning Wipes can be used on ALL types of leather and fabric, making it perfect for ALL handbags and purses! So finished and unfinished leathers, lambskin, exotic, suede, nubuck leather and all types of fabric (including coated canvas) can all be bacteria free.

This means that all luxury designer handbags can be clean and germ free!
