How to Remove Sticker Residue from Suede - Suede Stain Removal

By

Sticky name tags and "I Support My Favorite Candidate" stickers are not good for suede. Quite often when the tag is pulled off, some sticky glue or residue is left behind on the nap of the suede. Here's what to do:

Use an art gum eraser to gently "erase" away the residue. Don't rub too hard, just lightly rub the surface and the eraser will pick up the left over glue.

When the glue is gone, gently brush the area with a suede brush to restore and smooth the nap.

As a last resort, use an emery nail file to gently rub the area. Again, brush the stained area with a suede brush to restore and smooth the nap.
