STAIN ON SUEDE SHOES

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
i have a stain on a brown suede shoe..i tried removing it with one of those suede cleaner sprays...after drying ,the stain is still there..does anyone have any suggestions? i really like the pair of shoes and would hate to have to take my wife's advice to use them as foul weather shoes

What is the stain? Oil, water, food, ...?

Do you have one of those suede eraser bars? They are pretty cheap and work fairly well. I would have done this before applying any type of suede remover. Try using the suede eraser bar, then brush the affected area with a very coarse brush (like one used for BBQ grills).

I second the endorsement of the suede eraser. It may not work, but it's the only thing that could work.

Lincoln suede cleaner works miracles.Just make sure you have plenty of ventilation.

Shampooing suede shoes can work and I can say it has worked for me. A good shoe man can do it , the problem is finding a good shoe man. For those who live in MA or would ship, try Pelham Shoe Repair in Newton Centre MA. Ask for Dick, he's the best.

I second the endorsment of Lincoln suede cleaner. Best buzz I ever got was cleaning a pair of suede shoes with that stuff.
