Because it is composed primarily of polyester, doe suede is remarkably resistant to liquid and staining. It is also easy to care for. Doe suede upholstery can be cleaned with a damp cloth or sponge and mild soap. A yearly steam cleaning will also help keep doe suede upholstery looking good. Dolls or decorative items such as pillows made of doe suede can be spot cleaned when necessary. Clothing made of doe suede can be washed in the washing machine on a regular or gentle cycle and tumble dried. Fabric softener is recommended. Like many synthetic fabrics, however, doe suede is sensitive to heat, so dry it on a low setting and remove it from the dryer promptly.
