The Best Suede Cleaner For Home or Office Use
If you've ever owned a Suede Cleaner, then you'll know why it's one of the most sought after cleaning supplies. Suede is one of those stylish and timeless handbags and clothing choices that many people love to flaunt. However, for some reason, it tends not to stay on as good as it did on the day when you first bought it. As time goes by, suede begins to look faded and old, but it's still worth buying a Suede Cleaner so that you can get that rich suede touch back into your handbag or shoes again. The following are tips to helping you choose the right Suede Cleaner for your needs.
Before you even begin shopping for a Suede Cleaner, you need to make sure that you have the right tools. For instance, a dull toothbrush will do less than no good if you're going to be using it to try and remove tough stains from suede. For this reason, it's important to invest in a stiff brush with soft bristles that will work well on tough stains such as mud, grease and dirt. Also, make sure you have a large sink to soak the suede cleaner in to get all of the excess water out.
Next, you should purchase a Suede Cleaner with a built-in cloth. The cloth will help you to apply the cleaner more efficiently because it allows you to dip the brush in the cleaning solution without having to do so manually. Simply lay the brush on top of the liquid, wring it out, and then wipe the cloth over the area of the suede that you need to clean. To avoid having your suede cleaner wet, be sure to wipe it off immediately once it has been dipped in the solution. You don't want water spots building up and making it harder to remove.
Once you have a cloth, you're ready for another step of cleaning your suede shoes with suede cleaner. Again, it's important to have a stiff brush because the thinner bristles won't do as well of a job. Thicker brushes will give you better results. Next, apply the cleaner to the entire surface of the shoe by rubbing in a circular motion. Be sure not to scrub too hard or else areas of the shoe could be stripped.
Once you've used a good quality suede cleaner to make the surfaces of your shoes look new and shine, you're ready to start cleaning them again. It's best to allow your suede items to dry completely before attempting to walk on them. If you leave your suede items sitting in water for too long, the suede can develop a mildew odor. This can be quite difficult to get rid of unless you find a DIY suede cleaner that will effectively eliminate it. To make sure you're getting the right DIY suede cleaner, find a cleaner that's specifically designed for leather and suede items. There are plenty available online if you shop around.
Now when you're finished cleaning your suede shoes, you should make sure you wipe them down thoroughly with a dry soft cloth. A suede brush can be used for this step. This is the best way to remove as much of the dirt, debris, and makeup as possible before you begin working on the next steps of cleaning the shoes. You may also choose to use cleaning spray, which works wonders on dirt and other residue.
After the cleaner has completely dried, you'll want to make sure your shoes are as free of dust, debris, and other marks as possible. For heavily soiled areas, you can use a shoe brush or a small brush attached to a strap on your vacuum. For heavily stained areas, you may want to utilize the power of an old iron, but be careful as it may cause discoloration to the leather. If you try to use a metal brush on heavily stained leather, be prepared to wipe the stains away. Some stains require more drastic measures, such as staining the leather with a special black stain remover, which is sold at most shoe stores. Never use bleach on suede shoes or they will turn dark in color.
So you can see, it's easy to get a suede cleaner home and apply the method you prefer, whether you're at home or in the office. The best part about these products is they come in all kinds of styles and makes. So whether you'd like to clean your suede items for your own home or business, there is a DIY suede cleaner out there for you!
