A lot of people ask me how to keep their keybies looking nice and pretty for as long as possible, so I thought I’d put together all the keybie care tips I share into one blog post to answer any future questions.
However, all new keybies now have their images sealed in differently, and will last much, much longer. They can also withstand any amount of sun, and can withstand water better. You still can’t bend it without it looking ugly though!
Caring for your keybie (or keybies!) isn’t hard, as long as you follow a few simple rules and tips:
1) Keep your keybies dry
This is the most important rule of all! If you keep your keybie on your bag and it’s raining outside, detach and tuck your keybie away before you go braving the rain. Though keybies are water-resistant, they are not waterproof—the difference is that while a keybie can survive a few drops of liquid, they will look like they’re melting when they’re submerged for several seconds!
If you do get your keybie wet, do not use tissue to wipe it dry! If you have no choice, keep the tissue away from the sides, or else bits of tissue will stick and it will not look pretty.
The best thing to do is to hang your keybie where it can dry without making a mess, then clean off any stains on the design with a damp (but not wet!) cloth.
