How to clean Hey Dude shoes in leather
- Make sure your shoes are dry and use a suede cleaning brush to gently wipe away any dust or dirt. Always brush in the same direction (do not go back and forth) to remove dirt and make the shoes newer.
- Use a suede brush to remove scratch marks. Use the suede brush to vigorously brush the striped areas in front and back.
- Remove water stains with water, this can discolor the suede. To solve this problem, wet the outside of the shoe by applying a light layer of water with a nail file. Use a sponge or dry cloth to absorb excess water, then let the shoes dry for at least one night. Make sure to insert a support into the shoe while it dries so that it does not shrink or lose its shape. Once the shoes are dry, lightly brush them with a suede brush.
- Remove oil or "unknown" stains with a nail file. Use the suede brush to rub the stain as you would for a scuff. Use the nail brush to rub the most stubborn stains with warm water. Grease stains can be particularly difficult to remove from suede, so shoes that are too stained may never look good again.
- Leave the mud to dry naturally. Remove excess mud without pushing too hard against suede. Leave to dry. Once done, you should be able to break the larger pieces. Use a suede brush to break the remaining dirt particles.
- Protect your suede. Spray a coat of protective suede spray on your shoes after buying them and after each cleaning. Follow the manufacturer's instructions and make sure to remove excess dirt before spraying your shoes.
