    Cleaning suede and ceramic hobs 18th May 17 at 4:37 PM
    Hi Two questions and maybe in the wrong place. sorry..
    I have some suede trainers about three months old but they look like they are a year old
    what is a good cleaner for them?
    How do you clean your ceramic hob and stop the smear marks?
    thanks
    Spending my time reading how to fix PC's,instead of looking at Facebook.

    We had ceramic hobs in our last house; stainless steel hob covers were the salvation of my sanity.

    Never again!

    instructables has a good tutorial about suede shoe cleaning. I did my suede sandals following it and they came up very nicely.

    Hi,

    try this on your hob, not your trainers,



    Semi-Chem 89p, or shops.
    Y'all take care now.

    Hob Brite for the hob. It's not the cheapest product out there, but it works really well. And a bottle lasts for ages - you only need to use a tiny drop each time.
    I may not know much about art, but I know what I like.

    Basically; yes. You take the covers off when in use, and put them on when done. The hob we inherited was beyond cleaning, and the ceramic was very absorbent or stains.
