How to Fix a Scratched Leather Bag?

Fixing Minor Scrapes and Scratches

Some scrapes and scratches are more minor than others and can easily be fixed with items you already have in your house. For smaller scratches, start by using a cotton swab or cotton ball dipped in distilled water.

Gently rub the cotton swab over the scratch until it is no longer visible. If the scratch is still visible, try using a white pencil eraser. Rub the eraser over the scratch until it disappears.

If these two methods do not work, purchase some liquid shoe polish that matches the color of your bag. Apply a small amount of shoe polish to the scratch with a cotton swab and rub it in until the scratch disappears.

Wipe off any excess shoe polish with a clean cloth.

Fixing Deep Scratches

If the scratch is deeper, you will need to use leather repair kits that can be found at most craft stores. 

These kits come with various color options so that you can choose one that closely resembles the color of your bag.

Start by cleaning the area around the scratch with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. This will help remove any dirt or debris so that the repair kit can better adhere to the bag.

Once the area is clean, follow the instructions on the repair kit to fill in the scratch. These kits usually come with a small tube of glue and directions on how much glue to use based on the scratch size.

Allow plenty of time for the glue to dry completely before using your bag again. Learn how to keep your leather bag from cracking.

Conclusion:

Scratched bags do not have to mean buying a new one. With some simple household items or a leather repair kit, your bag can look new again in no time!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you get scratches out of bag?

Yes. As long as the scratches are shallow, they will eventually fade away. You can speed up the process by rubbing them with a small amount of hand sanitizer and then with a soft cloth.

Also, note that items made with real leather will age with time so these scratches will disappear as the item ages.

Do leather scratches go away?

First, you must understand that no leather is 100% scratch-resistant. But there are ways to boost your leather’s resistance to scratching.

The main thing is to apply some protectant regularly. It can be a commercial leather conditioner.

Apply it regularly, and the leather will become more resistant to scratches.
