Removing indigo dye from shoes

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Yesterday I wore new dark jeans with new white sneakers and the result was new blue sneakers. . . . Has anyone had success with removing indigo dye from suede shoes?

How about removing it from leather shoes or shoe laces? I've got some AEs with indigo on the laces and uppers, but it's not as noticeable since the shoes are dark.

I've read that using a toothbrush with some stain remover or dish soap could work but I'm concerned about making it worse. Thanks!

For suede you are best trying to dry brush. Any moisture will cause indigo to bleed and possibly set. For the laces just remove them and bleach.

I've had success with a regular old pencil eraser on leather.
