Detergent Spill on Suede Boots

I have just dripped washing machine detergent down my dark brown suede boots. Can I do anything to get it out of the material? Can professional cleaning help?

Thanks,
Anna

Holding the boots upside down to keep from getting water inside, run some lukewarm water over them and gently brush with a soft brush until the detergent is gone. Blot the suede dry with a towel and completely dry in front of a fan (not heated air). Use suede brush on dried suede to raise the nap again.
