Light-colored suede shoes undoubtedly look very impressive. Well-made leather, slightly hugging the leg, creates a sophisticated and noble image. However, boots made of light suede, especially in the off-season with its mud and puddles, require particularly careful care.
It is necessary
- - suede brush;
- - ammonia;
- - water;
- - cotton wool;
- - hydrogen peroxide;
- - milk;
- - soda.
Before using your suede shoes, do some preliminary preparation. Purchase a special protective spray and apply it to your boots. When processing, do not forget about the bootleg. Let the shoe dry completely. This product will protect your skin from moisture and dirt.
Purchase a special suede brush. It can be made of rubber fibers, or it can have a harder texture that resembles a loose metal sponge. After using the shoe, use a gentle motion over the surface. Do this when the boots are a little dry to avoid scratching your skin. Such brushes provide mechanical cleaning from large particles of dirt and dry dust. In addition, they slightly lift the pile of the suede.
To clean stubborn dirt from suede boots, use 1 part 10% ammonia and 4 parts water. Soak a soft cloth or cotton swab in this solution and wipe the surface of the shoe. When no stains remain, wipe with a cotton swab dipped in clean water.
Milk is perfect for cleaning light-colored suede shoes. Place a teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of milk. With this composition, moisten a sponge and clean the surface of the boots. This mixture will gently "roll" dirt particles. If, after cleaning in this way, the boots have not returned their delicate pastel shade, use hydrogen peroxide. Dilute a teaspoon of peroxide and apply a cotton swab soaked in this liquid to particularly dirty areas. Do not use this remedy too often: bleach light-colored suede boots no more than twice a month.
