I washed a suede bag (purse)

This was years ( and more years) ago when I was a caredevil student.
I had a light tan suede handbag that had got really grubby - it had really got beyond being worth spending money on specialist cleaning( and I was a student) so I scrubbed it with laundry powder and a nail brush. I emerged from this lack of care perfectly clean if a little stiff, but it soon softened up again - it got a few more scrubs later too as I remember.
I scrubbed a few pairs of suede shoes too
