How to clean suede work boots?

Cleaning suede work boots needs to be done with care to avoid damaging the material. Here are some steps you can take to clean your boots:

  1. Remove Loose Dirt and Dust: Use a suede brush to gently remove any loose dirt and dust from the boots. Always brush in the direction of the suede’s grain to avoid causing damage. You can usually find suede brushes at a shoe store or online.
  2. Eraser or Suede Cleaning Block: For stubborn dirt and scuff marks, use a suede eraser or a suede cleaning block. Gently rub the eraser or block over the stained area until the mark lifts off.
  3. Suede Cleaner: If the boots are very dirty, you may need to use a suede cleaner. Spray the cleaner on the boots (avoiding soaking them), and then use the brush again to work the cleaner into the boots. Always follow the instructions on the cleaning product.
  4. Drying: Allow the boots to dry naturally away from direct heat or sunlight, which can cause the suede to warp or fade. Stuffing the boots with newspaper or a towel can help them hold their shape as they dry.
  5. Waterproofing: Once the boots are clean and dry, consider using a suede protector spray to help waterproof them and protect them from future stains.

Below are the cleaning Steps for suede leather work boots:

  1. Brush off loose dirt and dust with a suede brush.
  2. Use a suede eraser or cleaning block for stubborn marks.
  3. Apply a suede cleaner for very dirty boots, following product instructions.
  4. Let the boots dry naturally away from direct heat or sunlight.
  5. Apply a suede protector spray for waterproofing and stain protection.

Please remember that these are general guidelines. Always follow any specific cleaning instructions provided by the boot manufacturer. Also, test all cleaning products and techniques on a small, inconspicuous area first to ensure they don’t damage the suede.
