How to Clean Suede Furniture

Taking care of suede can be tougher than other furniture upholstery because each suede fabric reacts differently to cleaners. It is important to use a product that is sensitive and non-abrasive. You should also take care to clean stains as soon as possible, as set-in stains are much harder to get rid of in natural suede. If you find you cannot remove the stain, it may be neccessary to hire a professional.

Before attempting to use this cleaner, we suggest that you test a small area on the back of your furniture to ensure that it will not negatively affect the appearance.

  1. Remove any debris or dirt that may be attached to the stain.
  2. Add a mild detergent to a bucket of water.
  3. Stir the mixture to blend.
  4. Use a microfiber rag to take suds (only, no water) and apply to the stain.
  5. Gently dab the stain with the rag.
  6. Continue to dab the stain with a unsoiled portion of the rag.
  7. After the stain is completely gone, dab with a dry microfiber rag.
  8. Brush with a suede to restore the look of the suede.
