How To Clean Suede Shoes

2 Mar

I went out for dinner on Saturday night and got completely soaked on the way there. (Caught public transport and had no umbrella) I’m talking walking into a restaurant looking like I just got out of the shower. Drenched!

Despite the rain, it was still nice and warm and lots of fun so I got over the fact that I apparently “looked like I had a bad perm”, once my hair had dried, but was not very happy the following morning when I woke up to see the damage to my red suede shoes. When I first saw them I wasn’t sure if I would be able to fix the dye that had run.

Fortunately I remembered that I’d bought a suede cleaning block a while ago, so I thought I’d give it a try. I gave my shoes a once over with the block and then brushed them with a suede brush and they’re as good as new. (I can’t say the same about my dyed red feet!)

It’s a really handy little thing to have on stand-by if you’re the owner of suede shoes, bags or jackets. (..and live in Melbourne and are in the habit of leaving home without an umbrella as I did)  It worked a treat!

*Note I had also treated my suede shoes with a protective spray when I first bought them, so I think that saved them too.
