I was wondering that myself.

Vacuum often, Only use a terry cloth dampened with water. You can fluff it back up with a dry terry cloth. If its stained you are best off to see a professional.

I don't think theres anything you can do with suede. It just gets a worn look to it that eventually becomes smooth like leather. It might be a bad idea for an insert, but I think it's very comfortable. I hope it at least stays comfortable as it turns it's color and smoothes out.

Normally with suede you use a suede brush in all directions, just do it lightly and don't rub a hole in it.There is also suede shampoo just trie not to soak it.Is it real suede or fake suede like the lightning?:confused:

I am with Chuck, normally I use a light brushing to clean. And like Mongoos, when I get it dirty visually, I use a damp terri cloth and then dry immediatly with teri cloth towel. So far, no stains:)

From some other post either here or SVTEnthusiast, the stuff is from here and they have some cleaning and care hints on the site.

Most any thing you need for care protection and cleaning can be found at a reputable shoe repair shop such as Gerald's in Five Points, Columbia South Carolina.They have helped preserve everything from Rolls ,to Beamers, to MBs.(Just trying to help, I don't want to turn this board into some sort of commercial):p

When I had my 99 Lightning I had
the grey interior psuedo suede, and I believe
our 03's have the same material, I used this stuff
in a can called "Chem-Dry" "I think" little blue can with
a foamy cartoon guy on it. White foam, kinda like
dry cleaning safe for all types of fabrics, but no harsh
chemicals, foam on, blotted it in with a towel no brushing,
let dry, vaccum, dried qwik, then a light soft brushing,
perfect just like new, no stains. Got it at home depot.

I was thinking of checking an upscale shoe store.
They sell suede shoes that cost hundreds of dollars! imagine they would have a safe cleaner.
