1. The "hard" brush is nylon/plastic bristles outer, brass bristles inner.
2. All other parts are made of the same kind of rubber.
Products like these 4-way brushes shouldn't be used for trying to "rejuvenate" used or soiled suede UNLESS you buy like 5 of them for a single pair of shoes. After trying to rejuvenate some used suede shoes I bought, I'm realizing these kinds of brushes are probably fantastic for regular upkeep i.e. use the product after every time you wear new suede shoes to keep them in mint-like condition, and don't ever let your suede shoes get moderately-heavily soiled. They are probably also good for regular spot cleaning.
Because I've only used the brush to try to clean soiled shoes I'll explain a bit more about that. The reason I say you'll need 5 of them for one pair of soiled suede shoes is because the part you will use the most is the jagged half disk of rubber. You will be applying LOTS of pressure and that jagged half disk will wear down relatively quickly, faster than the other parts of the brush.
NOTE: I have only used this product with a beige/dark-ish tan shoe. I have not used it on a light or very dark shoe, so I have no idea what will happen if you do that.
--- How to use ---
The rubber parts of the brush are essentially used to "loosen" up dirt. It's kind of like when you lick your palms and rub them together and you see strands of dirt appear. That's pretty much what's happening here.
Rubber bristle side:
Good for mild dirt loosening and restoring the nap with gentle strokes. Because of the thinness and gaps between the bristles, even if you apply lots of pressure you're not going to get much deep cleaning.
Smooth thin rubber flap:
Good for crevices and hard to reach parts.
Jagged rubber disk:
This thing is amazing. Because it's so small, you can really only use it for spot cleaning. The texture makes it great for loosening up dirt that's really caked in, but it disintegrates through using with heavy pressure.
Use for swiping off loosened up dirt. Can be used with moderate pressure. Heavy pressure makes me feel uneasy. Light pressure will also do good for the nap.
1. Use the rubber brush side with mild pressure over all parts of your shoe. Keep the strokes back and forth in one direction.
2. Use the nylon/brass brush to swipe off any dirt that came loose.
3. Find a spot that's got dirt caked in. Apply heavy pressure with the jagged half disk. Ideally go back and forth in one direction, but it's not a big deal if you don't. You can really go to town with it. Soon, the dirt will be loosened and the jagged rubber disk will be a bit worn. NOTE: this will "brighten" the spot, and it may end up brighter than the rest of the shoe. That's okay. Keep an eye on it and be more gentle if you notice this happening.
4. Use the nylon/brass brush to swipe off the dirt that's come loose.
5. Use the rubber brush with heavy to mild pressure to restore the nap over the spot you just heavily cleaned.
6. Repeat step 3-5 as needed on the spot. No need to go all out in one go. As I said, keep an eye on it and don't overdo it. Going too hard in one go may ruin the coloration of the spot and you may end up brightening / ruining the suede in that one spot.
7. Redo step 1. Doing step 1 again will help you re-establish the "color-tone" of your shoe, making sure that the color of the spot you just heavily cleaned hasn't become too bright. Using heavier pressure with the rubber brush over a bit of time will also very very mildly lighten the rest of the shoe, so if you mildly lighten a spot during spot cleaning, you can apply heavy pressure with the rubber brush to mildly lighten the rest of the shoe. From here basically keep doing Step 1 - 6 until you're satisfied. End with Step 1 to restore the nap on the whole shoe. Use the thin rubber for crevices - you can apply hard pressure.
THIS METHOD WILL DEFINITELY LIGHTEN / DULL THE PIGMENTATION OF YOUR SHOE. That's what happens when cleaning moderate-heavy soiled suede. Use lighter pressure if you don't want that to happen. There are other products out there to re-pigment your shoe after cleaning. This guy who runs a youtube channel called "The Hanger Project" has a suede cleaning video where he uses a product that restores the shoe pigmentation after cleaning. I haven't tried that method, but it looks legit.
I was expecting that both of these brushes were made in Germany, as that is what the photos show. It turns out that only one brush is from Germany and the other is a lower quality, (probably made in China), as it is unmarked and has bristles coming out as I took it out of it's box! Plus I paid $11.60 for this set that is now $7.60. Not too cool!
