If you have suede, cleaning it with a suede eraser is a good option. Suede is not as easy to clean other other fabrics. Cotton can simply be tossed in the wash. Leather can be wiped clean. Suede is a bit tricky though. If you know your options when it comes to cleaning the luxurious fabric, you can keep it looking lovely for years! Whether you are going to use a suede eraser on a sofa or a pair of shoes, we will tell you exactly how to do it.
To clean suede using a suede eraser and other products, you will need:
- Suede items
- Suede eraser
- Metal suede brush
- Soft dry cloth
- Gently rub the surface. Using the dry cloth, rub the surface smooth.
- Use the suede eraser. A suede eraser is a special block shaped cleaning tool. There is a cleaner in the eraser that creates crumb-like particles that go deep in the surface to lift up the stains or ground-in dirt. If you don't want to buy a pricey suede eraser, a regular pencil eraser will do the trick. Rub the eraser in the selected area. If the stain is wet, use a paper towel or cloth to absorb the moisture. Avoid scrubbing. You don't want to damage the delicate fabric. Avoid using any cleaning products.
- After using the eraser, brush the suede with a metal suede brush. This is an excellent tool for smoothing the roughened surface of the suede. It helps to restore the fluffy texture. Use the brush in a circular motion. A suede brush can also remove scuff marks on suede shoes.
