How to use Scotchgard™ Suede & Nubuck Protector

Keep your suede and nubuck looking great with a few simple steps.
  • 1. Clean

    Remove mud, dirt, salt, etc. from boots, shoes, or other items.

  • 2. Prepare

    Protect floor, walls, or other surfaces from overspray. If overspray occurs, quickly wipe up.

  • 3. Shake

    Shake can well.

  • 4. Test

    Test for colorfastness. Spray hidden area until wet and wipe vigorously with a white absorbent cloth. If color rubs off, DO NOT USE.

  • 5. Spray

    Hold can upright 6’’ (15cm) from fabric surface. Overlap spray using a slow, sweeping motion. Two light coats are better than one heavy coating. Allow to dry between coats and before use.

  • 6. Reapply

    Reapply to maintain protection. Durability of protection varies with wear. NOTE: May give leather a slightly darker, richer tone.
