    if it is water based it should wash off easily. try wiping the worst off with kitchen roll first then some use some water on it?

    water-based should be easy, is the bedhead dry clean/surface wash? if it is then use a damp cloth to wipe it clean, may take a few goes, but shouldn't damage the fabric... xxx

    oh dear, the Maximum lube is one of the hardest to wash off from anything. It's designed to stay where it's applied, so it's no where willing to move anywhere even if you ask it politely. I really doubt you'll get very far with water before ruining the suede (it's not the most waterphilic material in the world). IMHO the only thing that has a chance of working is a cleaner used for suede shoes that you get e.g. from Timpsons or online.

    As it's suede on an item not normally meant to be put in contact with water, I doubt it's got water protection coating. See http://www.ehow.com/how-does_4680969_suede-react-water.html to check that water wil most likely ruin it.

    eeek poor you! I'd try repeatedly dabbing it off with dry kitchen roll to try and avoid the suede problems TLA says. Trouble is I think you're bedhead will be marked for life, so you may want to eventually try water as well.

    Thanks for all the answers guys!

    I dabbed it with kitchen roll..so it's no longer sticky.. just a huge dark patch!

    Will pop down to timpson today, cheers for the suggestion, if that doesn't work, water, elbow grease & eventually covering it up!

    Who buys a suede bedhead anyway..grrhhh xxx

    I'm sorry but thought this was really funny - if nothing else you'll have a constant reminder of all the fun you have had!

    is this your own bed or do you rent the flat/house? If your own, you can cover the rest of the bedhead in the lube to make it consistent. It will all be darker, but there won't be patches of different colours

    It turned in to Lost (which I hated after watching about 8 episodes)... Just got more strange as it went on. A lot of big budget US tele now seems to think plot twists are more important than plot.

    I only watched it because I got the boxset cheap. I do wonder why the Cylons were 'born' in lube though!
