Mulberry Handbag Mould Treatment

Handbag leather cleaning and mould treatment

Customer Location

Willoughby in Sydney, New South Wales

The handbag

This Mulberry handbag had become mouldy while stored in a wardrobe over a number of years. When this customer reached out to us for a free diagnosis/quote, we offered to clean and condition the leather, treat it for mould and then waterproof for ongoing protection.

Leather cleaning and conditioning

We firstly cleaned the leather to remove dirt, grime and surface mould wherever it was visible. We then applied a leather conditioner to help nourish the leather, which had lost its suppleness.

Leather mould treatment

After leaving the leather to dry, we applied a special leather mould cleaner which helped to remove all of the more deeply ingrained mould.

Leather waterproofing

We finally applied a waterproofing agent to the leather throughout the bag to help protect it from water damage and mould (as well as common stains) going forward.
