Sticker Residue on Suede

I put a sticky name tag on my new suede jacket and now the glue won't come off. Any ideas on how to take the glue off of my jacket?

I want to kiss whoever suggested this! While moving my friends packed my favorite suede jacket and put 5" of packing tape on it. I thought it was ruined. I used an art eraser and its like new. You're a genius! Thanks!

Yes- Julie was right on! I too put a name sticker on my suede sports coat and it wouldn't all come off. I got a pencil eraser and went at it and it took it off. I read elsewhere that an art gum eraser may be better. Then remembering my first pair Hush Puppies, when they came with a wiry suede brush, I found a little stiff brush and finished it off. It raised all the knap and made it blend in better.

RE: Residue From a Shop Label on Suede

I use a product called GooGone- don't know if they carry this in Ireland, but we have it in the US in our hardware/home improvement stores like Home Depot and Lowes. However, I'd recommend that you test it on an internal/lining area to see how the suede will act (it might leave a ring or spot.) (12/13/2005)

I tried the pencil eraser and could hardly believe how well it worked. The sticky gum is completely gone. The jacket is dark brown and although I can see where the label was, it looks like what I think is called, a natural imperfection and blends in. Thanks Julie. (12/13/2005)
