April 27, 2007, Newsletter Issue #186: Suede Clothing Care and Cleaning

Tip of the Week

To clean suede clothing, if ordinary brushing doesnīt do the trick, try rubbing the spot lightly with an an artistīs eraser or an emery board, then steam over a boiling kettle. A stain on suede that wonīt brush or wipe off should be treated by a professional suede cleaner as quickly as possible. Though you can try cleaning it yourself with a suede-cleaning product, you may end up doing more harm than good. You can protect suede by spraying it with a silicone spray that you can purchase at most shoe stores.
