    kristina (or anyone)…what is a good waterproof for suede that doesn’t discolor?

    Joy – Thank you for your question! I have always used “Kiwi Protect-all” to waterproof both leather, suede and nubuck accessories. It can be found at most drug stores and some grocery stores. Bed, Bath and Beyond and Target usually carry this brand as well. The Kiwi brand also does make a specific product to clean and protect suede and nubuck but I have had no problems with the multipurpose Protect-all one. For either product, pay particular attention to the directions (ie. spray from a distance and with even strokes; plus repeat process if protecting items for the first time). I would also recommend repeating each fall/winter season. I hope that helps. Let me know how it works for you.
