A suede couch looks suave and sophisticated, but only as long as it is kept clean and neat. This can be accomplished with regular quick cleaning and brushing, as well as an occasional vacuuming. If the couch is new or relatively clean it can be treated with any of a number of stain protectors that can be purchased from a local hardware store.Older and dirtier couches, however, will obviously require a more thorough cleaning before treatment so a few solutions are suggested here.

To keep your suede couch clean, all you need to do is vacuum and brush it once a week. For a deeper clean, vacuum in a criss-cross pattern, which will help free debris trapped in the creases. Then, wipe the cushions with a suede brush or a terry cloth. You should also brush the couch with the suede brush to remove any dust and debris left by the vacuum. If your suede couch gets stained, lightly dab the stain with a terry cloth and white vinegar or rubbing alcohol. If that doesn’t work, try a cleaner designed for suede shoes.
