How to Clean Suede Boots in 5 Easy Steps

1. Remove Loose Dirt

When cleaning suede boots, the first thing you want to do is get rid of any loose mud or debris. Grab a small, handheld vacuum with a soft bristle attachment. Gently vacuum any dirt that you see. Be sure to get the entire suede boot.

2. Use a Suede Brush

Now that the big stuff is removed from your suede boots, use a suede brush to get rid of any scuffs. Remember to not brush too hard. Suede is a delicate form of leather, if you push too hard with your suede brush you might end up doing more harm than good.

3. Get Rid of Stains 

If your suede boots are stained, use your suede eraser to remove them. Again, be careful not to press too hard on the suede. Use gentle, circular motions with the suede eraser until the stain is removed.

4. Do a Spot Test

Spray a small amount of Leather Honey Suede & Nubuck Cleaner onto your lint-free cloth. Find a small, inconspicuous spot on your suede boots and apply the cleaner. There should be no adverse impact, but better safe than sorry.

5. Apply the Suede Cleaner

Once you're satisfied with the spot test, apply more Leather Honey Suede & Nubuck Cleaner to the cloth and rub it all over the suede boot. Allow your suede boots to dry completely before using. Ideally you'll want to wait at least 24 hours.
