How to Clean a Suede Couch

Owner from Curtain Clean BOP Ltd

Suede couches add a timeless elegance to homes. They are nice to look at, comfortable, and fuzzy. They are also quite a large investment, which is why it can be so upsetting to either watch a stain being formed or find a dried food stain.

Suede couches add a timeless elegance to homes. They are nice to look at, comfortable, and fuzzy. They are also quite a large investment, which is why it can be so upsetting to either watch a stain being formed or find a dried food stain.

A lot of people assume that suede, and faux-suede, are difficult to clean due to their fuzziness, but this could not be further from the truth. In this article, we will show you how to protect your couch and how to remove some common stains but, before that, it is good to understand what suede is.

What is Suede?
Suede is a soft, supple type of leather made from the underside of an animal and is mostly used for creating bags, shoes, clothing, and furniture. The warm and fuzzy texture of suede comes from all of the small, raised fibres (or nap), which cover the outside of the leather.

What is Suedette?
Suedette is a man-made alternative to natural suede. It is usually made from cotton or rayon, which has been given a suede finish. This is a great option for those that want the look of suede without using animal products or for those on a budget.

How to clean a suede couch
Cleaning a delicate fabric like suede may seem like a nightmare but, with a little bit of care and attention, you can keep your couch-stain free and protect it from most of the wear and tear caused by daily life. Follow the instructions below to find out what you’ll need, as well as how to clean suede.

Before you start
• Use an upholstery cleaner specifically for suede;
• Always refer to the manufacturer’s care instructions before cleaning;
• Make sure that the room your suede couch is in is well ventilated; open windows and turn on any fans;
• Use a painter’s face mask if it is difficult to air the room, or if you’re worried about the aerosol cleaner;
• If you have a new couch or are trying out a new cleaning spray, always test the product in an unseen area to make sure that your chosen cleaner does not affect the suede.

Things you will need
• Furniture cleaner for suede;
• A suede napping brush (these can be found at most shoe shops);
• A suede rubbing cloth;
• A vacuum cleaner;
• Brown gum eraser or a suede eraser;
• A dry sponge;

• Optional – a waterproofing spray or stain repellent; although these are optional they can help protect your couch for longer.

Weekly cleaning tasks: Cleaning a suede couch can be a daunting task, especially if has not been cleaned in a while, but maintaining that beautiful couch can be made a lot easier if you include it in your weekly cleaning schedule...

What does it take to want to learn something new... perhaps interest, need, want, curiosity or a deep desire to better one's life or exploring new tools and techniques for personal development and self improvement. The next Rebirthing /Breathwork group meeting date is now set for Saturday the 13th March from 2-4pm in Tauranga, so if you are interested to perhaps join me at this event, please join this group below. We have been booked out on two other events as I only cater for a group up to 9 participants. There is a cover charge of $20. The group is called Meetup Group "Tauranga Self Exploration via Rebirthing/ Breathwork" www.meetup.com................ I am inviting everyone to be part of this group who is suffering from anxiety, depression, abuse or addiction, stress or simply having breathing problems. This meetup group which is presently growing will conduct regular group meetings in the application and experience of breathwork. It is fundamentally a breathing technique which helps to connect to often underlying and less conscious causes of stress and to help to resolve or remove them using the breathing itself as the tool and helper. The term Rebirthing here has no religious affiliation but more so one of being in spirit, inspired and inspirational to remove obstacles of trauma in its many forms from our life so we may live a life with much more freedom and peace and compassion. Something we all could do with some more in times like these. You need to join my group first before you can attend any such event. Looking forward to meeting you. If you have done some breathwork sessions before or attended a workshop these group meeting still can be very valuable to anyone who knows about the breath and its gifts and secrets it holds. See you soon. Peter PS. Breath is life (the breath of life) and better breathing brings about a better life overall. See you soon.

"Maria was awesome to work with and nothing was too much trouble. Her knowledge on the product plus accessories was worth gold. The reason I got a water filter was mainly for weight loss and she has made the job so much easier. Many thanks Maria" Brian

"I have a Betta Water filter in my beach residence and love it. Takes up only a little room under the sink. Also got Maria to put one into my home as I was diagnosed with too much copper. My health and skin has improved considerably. Can highly recommend beta water filters. Great service" Nancy
