How To Clean Suede
|Cleaning : Cleaning Clothes|
Suede can be very hard to clean sometimes and often requires a dry clear to do it properly without damaging the material. However, this is costly, so if you can't afford it, follow these tips and do it yourself.
Rub the suede gently using a towel to restore some of its nap. Take off the dry dtains and marks by gently rubbing a pencil eraser over the affected areas. Wet stains can be removed with a paper towel to soak up any of the liquid. Do not apply any stain remover products though.
Then brush it with a suede brush. Apply a tiny amount of white vinegar to a lightly damp cloth as a last resort for suede shoes. Gently rub the surface with the cloth then allow it to air dry.
You can pre treat suede with a leather protection spray before use to minimise any damage. Remember vinegar used on shoes may leave a mild odour after cleaning.
If all else fails then you may have to resort to getting it sorted professionally.
