Hot water (not boiling) detergent (fairy liquid) and nail brush.

 

Clean, rinse and allow to dry naturally.

Flash... I own a Drycleaning and laundry business that does shoe repairs as well , the shoe repairs job done by a cobbler and I am trying to learn whenever I have spare time. He is off now and I was just try to assist a customer with cleaning this trainers as she was not confident  doing it her self using cleaning products we sell at the shop. 

By the way, this forum is for exchanging ideas and learning from each other not some kind of bulling each other. Nothing wrong with asking questions when we are not sure about something.

Hope this explanation resolves your concerns...

Just take care with the Fairy Liquid it can damage some suede, better to use propriety products than domestic cleaners.

I sometimes worry a little, that if I give cleaning instructions, then the customer makes a hash of it, would I be in anyway liable for the damage?

I advise customers to follow instructions on product, if any problems refer to manufacturer.

Apparently Mr T has just invested in a few machines and trialing them in a few branches that clean suede shoes, something about a steaming process I've heard. Great idea I think until the soles start peeling away from the uppers or customers start claiming the machine has shrunk their favourite trainers :)

 

Still hats off to the guy he knows how to make money thats for sure
