Bag handles are often neglected and not given as much TLC as they should be getting, but it's actually the part of your purse most prone to creasing and fraying. Don't worry, you don't need a magic cleaner or a special storage space to retain its good condition. All you need to remember are three simple rules to keep those handles in tip-top shape.
For chain-link bags:
Tuck the chain strap inside your purse to keep it safely stored.
For top-handle bags:
Keep the handles upright by filling the space within the straps with a roll of crumpled paper. This should avoid folded or creased handles.
For bags with detachable straps:
Take the straps out, roll them properly, and keep them inside the bag. Other than maintaining the shape of the straps, this way, you won't have to worry about misplacing them, too.
