Caring for a sheepskin coat is easy if you pay attention to spots and stains as soon as they occur. Cleaning them immediately with a special suede sponge, or using various other methods, depending on the type of stain, can save a trip to the dry cleaners. However, in some cases, this may be the only option to clean a sheepskin coat.
Use a suede sponge or brush, found at your local leather store, to remove spots and stains. Run the sponge over the areas of the coat that need cleaning, moving in an opposite direction of the nap.
Apply a layer of cornstarch to liquid or grease spots and stains on your sheepskin coat. Sprinkle it directly onto the coat over the stain. Allow it to sit on the stain for 1 to 2 days or longer, if necessary, to soak up the liquid. Then, vacuum the corn starch with a handheld vacuum or brush attachment on a large vacuum.
Dry a wet sheepskin coat slowly, without placing it in direct heat, if it ever becomes wet. Hang it in front of a small fan in a well ventilated room. Once it dries completely, remove water spots with a suede sponge or brush.
Apply a non-silicone water and stain repellent to your sheepskin coat once per year, preferably in the fall, to seal it and prevent stains from adhering to the surface. Apply the repellent according to the manufacturer's directions.
Take the sheepskin coat to a dry cleaner for deep or major stains that the above methods will not take out. It may take special cleaners and techniques that only a dry cleaner can provide to remove the stains.
