- When attempting to clean dyed suede, proceed with extreme caution. Dyed suede is likely to bleed with ANY contact with water.
- An easy way to test for bleeding is to take a light-colored towel and lightly brush the suede to check for any color transfer.
- When cleaning suede or any other delicate materials, be sure to use our Premium Brush which has softer hog bristles.
- The very first step is to take a dry premium brush and lightly brush the entire area of the shoe. This willremove any loose top layer dirt that may be sitting on the suede.
- To start, follow steps 1-3 listed on the back of the bottle.
- Now before scrubbing be sure to shake off as muchexcess water as possible. You can even take the brush and dab it onto a towel to remove even more water.
- Next you can start scrubbing, it’s best to give the entire area of suede an even go. This helps to promote even drying and prevents any water spots.Repeat as necessary.
- Now that you’ve cleaned the suede, the next and most critical step is the drying and revival process.
- After scrubbing, it’s important to move very fast -right into the drying process with a clean, drymicrofiber towel.
- Take the towel and begin to dab and twist. The key is to MOVE FAST.
- The dab and twist method not only absorbs water from the suede, but helps to slowly bring the nap back.
- Repeat this several times. Then allow to dry naturally.
- In an hour or two, revisit the suede with a dry premium brush and begin to work the nap back and forth.
- Continue this motion for an extended period of time. Then set the shoes aside and allow them to continue to dry naturally.
- After allowing the shoes to dry for several more hours, revisit the suede and repeat working the napback and forth with a dry premium brush.
- Repeating these steps several times throughout the drying period until the shoes have completely dried is critical.
