Suede? You sure? I thought it was Alcantara.

I moved it to the detail area maybe more people can help you here, and yes I think he meant alcantara.

Big difference between suede and alcantara when cleaning and protecting. I doubt your car has suede, it is very rare for cars unless it is a very high end car. For cleaning I would just lightly and gently wipe with a soft towel or brush with a very soft brush if the fibers stick. They make some suede water/stain protection sprays, I use this for my suede/analine jacket but you may not even want to be using a spray at all. I would just be extra careful and avoid stains as best you can.

You can use a damp cloth for stains for alcantara more then you can do for suede, alcantara is much more resistant to stains/damage then suede.
