How to remove grease on suede jacket?

caflowerluverApril 21, 2008

I dripped grease from ribs onto a suede jacket. Anyone know how to clean it? Other then spending a fortune at the leather cleaning store.

Thanks.

Rub the spots with corn starch....let it sit for a few minutes, vacuum out and repeat until stain is gone.
I wouldn't have believed it works....but I spilled chicken grease on a pair of suede pants and got it all out.

I have a pair of boots that I wore exactly 10 minutes and dripped chicken grease on it. How do I remove the grease off my brand new boots?

Buy some baby powder or corn starch, rub into the stains, let it sit an hour, then brush vigorously. The grease stains should disappear. (Baby powder leaves a nice smell.)
