Suede is a wonderful material for winter wear because it helps keep us warm and cozy. However, it can be a pain if you happen to get a stain on it. Because suede is really tricky to get clean, you need to be extra careful. Check out these tips for keeping your suede clothes and shoes looking brand new!
Read the product label.
Not all clothing that is labeled “suede” is actually made out of suede. There are many different types, so it’s important to know what material you’re dealing with. Luckily, if yours isn’t the real deal, faux suede is much easier to clean than authentic suede.
Don’t let wet stains soak into the fabric.
Suede is one of those materials that you just can’t get wet. If a wet substance drops onto your clothing, immediately blot it up with a towel. If the liquid gets below the surface, the suede will be much more difficult to clean.
Rub an eraser against dry stains.
You can easily remove dried stains by using the eraser of a pencil or a stiff paint brush against it. However, this method typically works just for surface stains.
