It is important to keep your handbag in shape when not in use. To do that, some have turned to stuff the inside of their handbags with magazine or old clothing. What most fail to understand is that not all material are suitable to be used as a bag stuffer. Material such as towel, newspaper and used clothing are not recommended for long term use as the color may run and damage the interior of the handbag.
