When my suede shoes got stained I ended up throwing them in the washing machine. The stains were gone and the shoes looked better compared to when I tried to hand clean them.

^I think I am going to try that. You'd imagine that soap would dissolve easily in the washing machine... At least I think that is how soap works Thank you

I sank into the mud a few months ago while wearing my favorite suede pumps ... just picked them up from the cobbler & they did an amazing job, look like new. I'd have been better off entrusting those to the dogs to clean up than my washing machine tho Cherry (no longer with us) once feasted on a suede shoe rosette ...

They were desert boots.

eizhowa, good luck! I think soap should dissolve, mine had ink in them (I gave them a milk bath first, to draw out most of it) so I didn't have much to lose since they were pretty messed up.

Is that why she is no longer with us...? Nono I am only kidding.

I am guessing a toiletries bag will do better in the washing machine than a pair of suede pumps...

^ No That was when she was a puppy, and she lived to an advanced age. I also have a wicker chair that shows evidence of her toothwork ... after I'd had it restored, too. A couple of my dogs have had extremely good taste in the things they ate

Yes, I think so. Not sure how well the texture will recover from being wet, but I believe it's best to dry leather slowly, away from heat ...
