Can I use a Rug Dr to clean my suede couches?

Answer:

I sure would NOT use a Rug Doctor to clean my suede! The reason it says to dry clean is because when you wet suede you will get water marks. Ever wear suede shoes in the rain? What you need to do if you want to spot clean them yourself is to get a suede cleaner at the shoe repair. It is formulated so that you will not shrink or water stain the suede. You also can spot treat very small areas or stains with white vinegar. But be very careful, because the couches are so light colored, test an inconspicious area (like the inside of a seam) first if you use the vinegar to determine whether it darkens the suede. I absolutely have ruined suede by cleaning it improperly.
No Way! Using a Rug Dr. would be a great way to ruin your couches. Call the store you bought them from or a reputable carpet cleaning company(one that has been in business a long time/and is insured).
I don't know anyone that sends their couch to a dry cleaner. Contact the mfg. and ask them what they recommend. Contact a local cleaner who does house calls and ask them.. search the circumstances before going with any one source. What ever you do have them make up a contract to be responsible for their service.
