Suede does not like water and can spot or the color can run so if you get your suede wet the sooner you take care of the item the better, soak up as much water as possible as quick as possible and wipe down with cloth. If you allow the suede to dry on its own you could be in trouble. After the item is fully dry give it a good brushing with a suede brush to bring back the nap.
If you get a mark on your suede you can use a suede brush or a suede eraser as quickly as possible before it penetrates into the material.
