Can you wash suede shoes in the washing machine? If not, what's the best way to wash them?
Heather Donnelly's answer is quite accurate and correct. Before wearing any suede clothing or shoes, spend some time spraying it with a protective spray to resist dirt andl also resist any water. The spray should be purchased at shoe repair or leather clothing store. Apply it several timrs, allowing the shoes or garment to dry between sprays. Make sure you are outside or have LOTS of ventilation (an open window) when spraying.
The spray can cause beeathing difficulty and is also flammable. So no smoking or using any that has an open flame.
