The Best Way to Clean a Suede Couch


A suede couch is a substantial investment. Care must be taken to preserve the condition of the hide and protect it from stains caused by everyday wear and tear, accidental spills and pets. Unlike upholstered couches, a suede couch requires gentle cleaning products; chemical-heavy cleaners are more likely to fade the couch when removing the stain. Vinegar is a suitable all-purpose cleaner that removes stains from suede without damaging it, according to the Repair Home website. It also is a much cheaper alternative to a professional cleaning.

Things You'll Need

  • Bath towel
  • Suede brush
  • Distilled white vinegar
  • 2 clean cloths
  • Brush the stain with a bath towel to remove dirt and debris from the area.

  • Rub the pencil eraser gently over the stain to remove as much of the spot as possible.

  • Pour 1 tsp. of vinegar onto a clean cloth; rub the stain in a circular motion to wipe it off the suede.

  • Blot the wet spot with a dry cloth to absorb any excess moisture, and allow the spot to air dry.
