    First you need to know if they are real suede or ultra suede. Real suede is leather and can't be cleaned the same as ultra suede which is a synthetic.

    Hi Kari! Is there a care tag on any of your cushions or under the cushions?

    You can purchase a Bissell furniture fabric cleaner made especially for upholstery and it works great since you are working with the foam. Read instructions carefully and do not over saturate. Dry off with a clean dry cloth to get anyh excess moisture out. Place a fan near the object for air movement so it dries faster. Try an inconspicuous spot first if you are concerned.

    My husband rents an upholstery cleaner from our local grocery store (a lot of them rent them) and cleans it with a suede safe cleanser and brush. They're like new!

    Get one or two of those Mr. Clean Scrubbing Sponges that disappear as you use them. They work great on suede!
