    My sneakers have a beige suede tounge that's now blue from the indigo of my jeans rubbing off on them. Even if I cuff them, the inside of my jeans is still enough to rub off.

    Any cleaning solutions on how to get rid of this indigo on suede? I haven't washed my jeans yet... should I soak the cuffs in hot water to get rid of some of the extra indigo?

    also, to prevent it happening again in the future, run some masking tape over the inside cuff of your jeans.

    Thanks Brian. The eraser got rid of about half of the indigo. It's a start I suppose... I'll get started on taping up the inside of my jeans. Can I draw little red lines on them, and roll up my cuffs? [​IMG]
