My son has a new pair of black nubuck (suede-like) shoes that were stored and now have mildew spots. We cleaned off the mildew but the spots do not go away. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Get a bit of dish wash soap and water and put it inside a cup. Put it in but don't let the water turn the color of the soap


Get the brush and gently scrub the nubuk
Don't scrub it to hard
Don't rinse it off with water
Just scrub it off with a towel

Over the summer, a suede jacket got mildew on the front while stored in a back bedroom closet. If anyone knows how to remove mildew from suede, please let me know! The jacket has been worn only a couple of times.

Get a sturdy hanger and hang that baby outside in the sunshine (several days -weather permitting) Dont worry about'd have to be out there for weeks for that to happen. Later brush it with a suede brush (comes in kits at walmart in the shoe section) or if you have an old boar bristle brush that would work too.


A few airing out sessions may be in order depending on smell. Rubbing it down with a dryer sheet may help with the smell too. Goodluck and god bless!
