Suede is a gorgeous material that looks good, but damn, it’s fragile and impossibly difficult to maintain. The soft and smooth texture of suede gets ruined when in contact with water, and is extra prone to scruffs, stains and scratches.

With that said, there is no reason to shy away from suede as there is a really easy way to take your shoes or bags from dull and worn to new and splendid. And the only cleaning agent you need is probably already sitting on your vanity.

We’ll spare you the suspense – it’s micellar water! Just put some on a cotton pad just as you would when removing your makeup and start wiping those pesky stains away. They’ll come off like magic.

We didn’t believe it at first, but it does work like a charm!
