How to Clean a Suede Recliner

We all know how messy it can get with kids and pets around the house. This is especially true when you have a suede recliner in your living room.

In this blog post, we’re going to cover how to clean a suede recliner so that it stays looking good for years!

How to Clean a Suede Recliner


5 Steps on Cleaning a Suede Recliner

Step One: Brush off any loose debris or hair. This will prevent the dirt from getting further into the material and ensure that you won’t have to go back over it with a vacuum cleaner later on.

  • Use an old toothbrush, brush, or handkerchief
  • Brush gently in circular motions so as not to damage the material
  • Brush off any loose dirt or hair
  • Use a vacuum cleaner if you see that there is heavier debris. Vacuuming may also be necessary for pet hair which will tend to stick more easily into suede


Step Two: Use water and soap sparingly with light pressure, in circular motions. Be sure to use a soft, damp cloth that is not too wet.

Water and soap should be used sparingly to avoid soaking the material or leaving behind oily residue from soaps. The water will soften up dirt which can then be removed with the fabric’s suede brush if necessary

Step Three: Follow up by brushing off any remaining dirt, hair, or debris with a vacuum cleaner.

This process will help to remove any dirt that has been loosened by the water and soapy mixture

Use an old toothbrush, brush, or handkerchief if you don’t have access to a vacuum cleaner. Remember not to scrub too hard on this delicate material!

Step Four: Dab the material with a dry cloth.

Drying will remove any excess water and soap mixture that has been loosened by scrubbing in step three

Step Five: Allow to air dry for at least 48 hours before sitting or laying on again

What is Suede Recliner?

The term “suede” is often used to refer to fabric made of the material called animal skin.

to protect it from wear and tear.


Best Material for Slipcovering a Suede Recliner?

The material you choose should be able to withstand dirt and stains since it will likely come into contact with these substances as well as hard wear from daily use.


How to care for Suede Recliner

In order to keep your suede recliner looking new, you’ll want to regularly care for it. Here are some tips that will help:

Make sure to vacuum the chair with an attachment at least once a week in order to remove any dirt and debris from the surface of the fabric.

Clean stains as soon as they happen to prevent them from becoming permanent. A regular cleaning can also help reduce how much you need to spend on professional cleaners in the future.

Be careful not to scrub too hard when you are wiping down your chair with a dry cloth and water mixture, as this will cause wear and tear on the delicate material! Use soft pressure instead.

Avoid spilling beverages on your chair, as this will cause damage to the fabric and leave behind a stain that is difficult to remove.

If you have hard water in your area, be sure to use only distilled or filtered water when cleaning your furniture. Tap water can dry out delicate fabrics and ruin the color of darker shades.

Avoid scrubbing the recliner, as this will cause the fabric to become matted. Use only a clean, damp cloth when cleaning your furniture.

If the stain is still present after you’ve cleaned it with soap and water or a cleaner made for suede fabrics, get some club soda and apply it generously over the stained area using a cotton ball or cloth.

Let the club soda sit for a few minutes, then blot it with a clean, dry towel to remove any excess moisture and let air-dry completely before using your chair again.
