Stubborn dirt on suedecloth seat

Hi all,

I have some stubborn dirt on my 'suedecloth' (feels very similar to alcantara) seat, I think its some sticky black goo (like the stuff on the high performance sticky pads).
Edit: on closer inspection, actually I don’t think it was anything sticky-pad or adhesive based, it gradually came out bit by bit with persistent gentle cleaning with alcantara cleaner, soft brush and dabbing it with a thick pile microfibre to “catch” the lather as it pulled the dirt up.

Fly spray (test in an inconspicuous area first.) Dabbed on with a cotton bud.

Tar and glue remover - same applies.

An ice cube can work on certain substances chewing gum being one.

By putting/rubbing ice on it it would freeze it meaning it can then be picked off

I've used it before with chewing gum in a carpet with success.

You can also get freezing spray for verruca’s from the chemist it may be a bit “dryer”.

I didn’t actually need to use the freezing trick, I kept on going with gentle cleaning with alcantara cleaner, a soft brush and a thick pile microfibre and it was coming out bit by bit. It might not have been anything sticky after all
