We hate to be a party killer, but especially cleaning of suede leather is not easy. Sometimes you won’t even be able to succeed. Therefore, we can’t recommend highly enough using a protectant spray beforehand. Believe us when we say, it makes all the difference. But if you did forget (well, to be honest we do too!), here’s what you need to know.
Suede leather tip: In case of dust, dirt or grease stains, try brushing gently first. If this is not enough try to carefully use a damp soft cloth and gently press the stain. Do never rub since it may leave bigger marks.
Smooth leather tip: Most dust, dirt or grease stains can be removed by simply wiping with a damp cloth. Don’t be afraid to use a little effort if necessary (but don’t overdo it). The leather colour is rather colour fast.
We generally don’t recommend a cleaner product, since it easily removes the colour. However, if the stain cannot be removed you can try a gentle cleaner product. It is always a good idea to test the product on a less visible spot on the bag, e.g. the strap or at the bottom.
Never use soap or any harsh chemicals.
