We provide extraordinary care for fine
garments & household textiles
You go to the bathroom at the supermarket, wash your hands, lift
your handbag off the shelf where it's been sitting and continue
into the store where you purchase fruits, vegetables and an array
of grocery items.
Do you think you're safe from germs just because you washed your
hands with a sanitizing soap?
Well, think again. Because, according to studies, the toilet
seat in that bathroom has fewer bacteria than the handbag
you just handled.
Consider these two studies, for example ...
A study by Nelson Laboratories in Salt Lake City
investigated the cleanliness of women's handbags. The results were
shocking: the handbags in the study tested positive not only for
the presence of bacteria, but for bacteria of the worst
kind such as pseudomonas (which can cause eye infections),
staphylococcus aurous (which can cause skin infections) and E-coli
(which can cause food poisoning).
A similar study by the University of Arizona found that
one-third of the handbags in their study had fecal bacteria
present. In fact, some of the handbags were 100 times dirtier
than the average toilet seat. While a bacteria level of 200 is
considered safe, most of the handbags had bacteria counts in
the tens of thousands, and a few had bacteria counts in
Of course, this makes sense if you think about it. Many women
rest their handbags on the floor of their cars, on the baby
changing station, inside the pouches of their kiddie's baby
here), on the floor in a restaurant, café, bar or movie
theater, on the counter at the bank, and similar places. No one
would think of eating off any of these surfaces because of the germ
factor: the bacteria attach to the handbag and then to the hand
holding the handbag.
Then, when you get home, you unconsciously set it down on a
kitchen counter where the germs do a hop, skip and a jump onto the
All of which, points out the need to clean
your handbags on a more frequent basis.
At RAVE FabriCARE, we clean many different styles
of handbags, in many different colors, with many different
finishes, and manufactured with different materials or combinations
of materials (leather, exotic leather, patent leather, suede,
fabric, canvas, nylon, vinyl, straw, etc.).
And how do we deal with all the germs and bacteria that are
likely to be found on both the inside and outside of your
Here's how: After the handbag has been entirely
cleaned, we reclean all the non-leather and non-suede
parts of your handbag - again - with a specialized antimicrobial
You see, our pH neutral, biodegradable cleaner contains
surfactants, citrus and hydrogen peroxide. It's a combination
degreaser, deodorizer (kills odor causing bacteria), sanitizer
(kills 99.99% of common bacteria, including Staph, Salmonella,
Strep and E-coli) and virucide (kills 99.9% of specified viruses,
including Herpes 2, Influenza AZ/Japan, HIV-1 and Hepatitis B).
We could use an ordinary cleaner like ordinary cleaners. But,
we're RAVE FabriCARE. And ordinary just wouldn't cut it.
Take this Gucci GG fabric Sukey handbag for example. The outer
fabric, the outer leather trim and the inside lining was filthy -
regular soil and dirt as well as black dye transfer from a silk
dress and blue dye transfer from an indigo dyed blue jeans. Our job
was to restore the outer fabric, the outer leather trim and inside
lining to as close to pristine condition as possible.
Clearly, we achieved that goal. And, as a bonus, we
deodorized, sanitized and virucided the entire outer fabric and
How many handbag cleaners in the USA are as thorough - and, yes,
as paranoid - as RAVE FabriCARE?
I'd bet you could count this number on one hand.
