    Default vegetable oil.

    i managed to get some vegetable oil spots on my daughters new suede beige boots.
    As you can imagine I'm not popular.
    Have tried using spot remover specifically for oil etc but they're still marked .

    Any suggestions?

    Try the dull side off some brown paper and a warm iron,be careful not to put the iron on the boot tho! x
    The nice thing about living in a small place is that if you dont know what you are doing....there's always somebody who does,or thinks they do! x

    Personally I would try a wee drop of neat soap powder, work it in and rinse thoroughly while trying not to wet the boot too much. Good luck......

    Will try putting the boot over the steam from the kettle.
    If I wet and/or scrub them anymore the suede will be two toned
