    Hi all I have a Belkin Folio iPad case in suede for a month now and it seems that it's getting dirty like it stains my iPad screen when I keep it closed just wondering how you guys go about cleaning that up? It doesn't look too nice when I'm doing presentation to a client and when I open it up it's all greasy and yucky. Should I dipi the folio case in a washing machine? Is it ok to wet it in soap and clean it and rinse it in water?

    you're kidding right? never owned leather/suede before?

    google suede cleaner - or try amazon..about a hundred aerosols you can buy...

    if you are talking about the inside of a smartcover , it's microfiber - try a damp towel....

    No I'm not kidding and this is not a troll post. I'm not gonna use aerosols. Is is it ok to just clean it with soap and water?

    I have a Belkin Cinema Stripe folio with the suede-like microfiber liner and have found that a microfiber towel soaked in hot, soapy dishwater and then well-wrung to just damp does a great job cleaning up the liner and even the iPad screen front. Immediately follow by drying off with another dry soft towel.

    Ok thanks I guess I'll just do it my way then, I'll just wash it under the tap with soap and water. I guess that's the best way to get it really clean next to dipping it in warm soapy water. I have reservations with aerosol spray suede cleaners though.

    BTW Koigirl, mine's a Belkin cinema dot folio. :)

    use what ever makes you happy, my amazement was when you mentioned the washing machine......

    as far as aerosols, you must be a environmentalist as it's not a problem otherwise, I use this on everything fabric/cloth, or suede:

    Dude I agree now, washing machine is overkill. :D:D:D:D I washed it with just hand soap and water and it's been sitting there drying for the past couple hours. Looks nice n clean to me and no pre mature wear on that case. :p

    If it's really suede then use a suede cleaner, as stated above. It's still suede. Being an iPad case doesn't change anything.

    Not a problem even if one is. HFC's haven't been used in aerosols for quite some time now.

    I usually clean it with "Endust for Electronics" and wipe it with a towel.And i have not faced any problem rather it cleans perfectly.
