Blending Discolored Areas on a Suede Coat?
I took my dark green suede jacket to my dry cleaners to remove fairly large grease spots. It was completely cleaned. The wear areas are almost light green with the rest of the coat is still dark green. What can I use to blend these back in? Spray the entire coat? Rub the light areas? In both cases with what? I've tried water and white vinegar - no difference. Help!

You can buy suede dye and dye the faded spots.

A felt tip marker in the right shade would work.

Blending spots on a suede coat will really be difficult as getting the correct color all over may never be possible.
Why not ask the cleaners what they recommend? You do not say how large so I'm just guessing they are larger than a half-dollar? If no larger you may be able to blend if you can find the same or close color and maybe do more than one coating. I would try using a suede restorer spray before using the dye method. Sometimes this will restore the original color and no dying necessary. Suede restorer spray can be found on line in many colors. www.amazon.com/ .../ B00MMEMHBC (Affiliate Link) Sometimes shoe repair shops have a lot of colors for leather and suede so you might try one of those. Just Google shoe repair with your zip and call around. Add your voice! Click below to answer. ThriftyFun is powered by your wisdom!
