1. Loose soil removal

Using your suede brush, remove all the loose soil on your suede. If you do not have a suede brush, a piece of soft cloth will work as well.

2. Spot treatment of stains

If there are grease stains on your suede, sprinkle cornstarch on them and let it sit for about two or three hours, then brush it off. If the stain persists, repeat the process. If this fails, you can get a commercial suede cleaner and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

3. Cleaning suede’s interior

To clean your suede’s interior, sprinkle a thick layer of baking powder into them, then use your suede brush to spread it.

Let it sit for two to three hours, then vacuum the baking soda out.

If the interior is heavily soiled, make a wool wash solution by adding a teaspoon of wool wash to warm water.

Dip a clean piece of cloth into the solution, then wring it till it is damp. Use it to scrub the suede’s interior till it is clean. However, ensure you frequently rinse the cloth to avoid the accumulation of dirt.

With all the stains removed, use a damp cloth to wipe out the soap residue, then let the suede air dry.
