Unlike rawhides, suede – with its fine-haired texture – requires a shampoo from time to time, in order to remove unwanted dirt and keep the nap looking voluminous and with good depth of colour. When it comes to giving our suede shoes a scrub, we’re yet to find a more effective concoction than the Saphir Omni’Nettoyant Suede Shampoo Cleaner.
Unlike more delicate leathers, suede is incredibly robust, and because of this used for casual shoes, bags and travel goods. Suede does not scuff or scratch, but can get dirty. As a result, suede needs regular cleaning, and if done properly, can ensure your precious item lasts for decades.
Depending on how dark or light the colour is, suede can take a beating and needs cleaning every few months. Saphir Omni’Nettoyant Suede Shampoo Cleaner contains a solvent that penetrates into the suede to remove grime and dirt, in the process, renewing the finish by bringing the original pigment to the surface.
Omni’Nettoyant is both a stain remover and cleaner, its delicate formula hydrates and rejuvenates weary suede, resulting in shoes that – pardon the cliché – look as good as new.
