How do I clean cooking grease off suede boots? I tried soap and water, but it didn't work.
I was told talcum powder absorbs the grease. Put some on, and rub it in, then brush it with a soft brush. Repeat till spot fades away. Good Luck! : )
Dab cornflour onto grease spot, & leave for a few hours. Brush with a soft brush or soft cloth. Repeat process till grease spot fades away.

|I have some pink suede boots that I received for Christmas. My little sister left the top off of a container, so now they have oil stains on them. Is there any possible way to get them out or cover them?|

|Try covering the stain with cornmeal. Let sit for 10min. Brush off with soft brush.|

|I have just used the tip for removing grease from suede boots. It really does work. Blot off excess grease with kitchen paper. Dip a clean piece of cotton material in some white vinegar and dab on to soiled area. Dab off excess with dry cotton cloth and when completely dry buff with suede brush gently.|
