My show saddle is suede all over, what you need to clean it is a kettle and a suede brush. You can also get specialist sprays for suede cleaning if you find the kettle too difficult.

You basicly steam the suede and work it with the brush as you go along.

OP-please don't use super glue on the Chicago screws! If you do, you will always have that bit with that headstall-forever, unless you cut it out.

Faye-what is a kettle?

Frankanbeans, I have no idea what you would call it but you generaly put water in it and then switch it on to boil water for making TEA (or coffee for the heathens out there!)

I just can't figure out how you use that to clean suede? The steam?

I use loc-tite on Chicago screws. That way I don't worry about them "self-loosening", but I can get them undone when I need to.

And that's a mighty pretty kettle. I'd like to get me one of those.

Loc tite IS a much better option, OP. NOT superglue.

LOL, it was my superglue suggestion . I quit using Chicago Screws years ago. I despise them simply because they always seemed to come undone even if I put something in them to "lock" them.

I think Loctite does make a superglue as well. We're talking about the Loctite threadlockers. They seal up the threads to prevent corrosion, and also provide extra grippiness so the screw doesn't come undone before you want it undone.
