How to clean pink suede shoes
Brush the shoe to reveal dirt. To loosen dirt trapped in the nap, use an old toothbrush or old towel to bring the dirt to the surface of the shoe. If your shoes are covered in dust or sand, use the small attachment on your vacuum cleaner to remove the dirt gently.
Apply a suede brush to remove any dust or grime. Using short strokes, brush the soiled area. The suede brush removes small pieces of the leather to reveal the smooth under layer of the skin without diminishing the pink color of the shoe.
Remove scuffs with an emery board or pencil eraser. Use these tools to erase small black marks. Rub gently to prevent fabric damage.
Blot dry. If you get moisture on your suede shoes, quickly blot them dry with a clean cloth. Take suede shoes drenched by the rain or snow to a professional for expert cleaning and repair.
Sponge vinegar to remove stubborn dirt or stains. Apply a mixture of 1 tsp. of vinegar and 1 tsp. of water to an old rag or T-shirt. Press into the soiled area gently. Let the vinegar dry for 10 minutes. Apply the suede brush to the area, to lift the vinegar solution and the stain. Dilute the vinegar to prevent the pink suede from darkening.
Spray shoes with a silicone shoe protectant. After every third wearing of your pink shoes, apply a suede fabric protector to resist new stains. Spray the solution lightly-for four or five seconds-to protect the suede during wearings.
