I am giving this a four star rating, mostly because I tend not to give out fives easily. That said, I have had some difficult stains to remove on my suede/nubuck shoes and tried a lot of frankly, harsh cleaners, which only worked at all because I was persistent. The Nikwax cleaner is so much easier to use, gentler, and safer for your lungs. Most cleaners are petroleum based and in aerosol form for which you need a mask and lots of ventilation to use, not to mention, the lingering odor. I have not encountered any shoe places that stock Nikwax. I am thrilled that Nikwax makes a product that basically "soaps" the shoes clean. Can it get rid of old set in stains? That depends on what the stain is, but my shoes (4 pair) now look closer to their original condition. Don't stop making these products! And thanks to STP for offering them at a great price.
