How do I clean suede shoes? They have light blue suede on the toe and heel. The stains are plain old dirt.

Start with using Scotch or packing tape [cellophane].
Press stick side down and lift. Repeat several times.
Once you get down to the last layers you may have to rub the tape with back of thumbnail. (10/05/2009)
I had a pair of light colored suede shoes that were not worn out, but were very stained and grubby looking. I hammered the surface of them all around until they were shiny, then polished them with black shoe polish. They came up a treat and were the softest "leather" looking shoes I ever had. I kept them for years afterward, as they were so comfortable. When they were on their way out I then used them for gardening shoes for a while longer. (10/06/2009)
