Anybody have any home remedies that are good for cleaning suede chaps?

I'm honestly not sure that there is one. Water will over time, wreck the suede, a very slightly moisted cloth will take the top layer of dirt off but it won't actually clean them. You can get regular shoe cleaner for them which actually lasts quite some time. That's exactly why I went to using leather half chaps. Found it was just easier to get all leather than leather and suede.
Good Luck

try working in corn starch and then brushing it off well. I spilt some baby oil on mine and this helped quite a bit in that situation. Hope it helps

The outside of a horse is good for the inside of a person.

Washing machine. Use woolite or similar "gentle" detergent and LOTS and LOTS of fabric softener. Put the washer on gentle, short cycle, small load, cold water. Rinse the dirt out of the chaps before putting them in the wash, to get most of the dirt out. Lay flat to dry on a dark towel, not in direct sunlight.

Just don't do this very often, lol. Use a stiff horse brush to knock off dried mud as often as possible.
