Investing in a new pair of boots in Australia can be a little expensive. So once you do, try to get your money’s worth out of your UGG winter boots. You’ll look for every opportunity to wear them, particularly as the winter weather sets in Australia.
The issue is that most winter boots, although long-lasting and cozy, are constructed from somewhat fragile material. The outer sheepskin exposes every water drop, salt smear, bit of dirt, and so on, just like your other suede boots.
How to Keep Your Boots Stain Free?
The greatest protection is a sheepskin protectant applied before the first wear. But if you do find yourself in a pickle (or pickle juice, in this case), follow the steps we provide to get our comfy babies clean again.
Given that you can’t simply throw your winter boots in the washer (we agree, it’s a shame), here are some easy methods to remove typical stains like salt, water, and dirt.
UGGs are perfect for chilly, rainy days in Australia because of the sheepskin lining that keeps your feet toasty warm. However, the elements in the Australian terrain are no friend to sheepskin and can quickly ruin your boots.
If part of your boots becomes wet, you may avoid water lines by saturating the whole pair with a moist towel. If it’s too late, however, here’s what to do:
- Use a dry towel to blot damp spots.
- Paper towel the inside of your boots and dry them somewhere cool.
- If necessary, use a moist cloth and a suede cleaner designed for the fabric.
To think you once considered puddles the worst issue during a rainstorm. The good news is that if the muddy mess you expected to find in the dirt patch turns out to be dry! It’s far simpler to get rid of dried stains than liquid or salty stains.
- Make sure the mud is completely dry.
- Using a brush, remove as much of the gunk as possible.
- Use a suede cleaner on any lingering residue that is still present.
Salt from the roads and sidewalks may discolour sheepskin as if the messiness of snow and rain weren’t bad enough. Before treating the salt, it is suggested to preemptively address water stains to eliminate the possibility of permanent markings, lines, or deterioration. And then, well before shoes dry thoroughly, do as such:
- White vinegar and water, in a 50/50 ratio. Salt stains may be removed by blotting them with the solution.
- Use a wet towel to wipe and a dry one to dry the surface.
- Just hang it up to dry.
One possibility is that you fell and ruined your favourite pair of sand-coloured shoes with coffee. Or maybe you accidentally dropped a ballpoint on your foot, permanently staining your rosy-cheeked babies. This adaptable method may be used on various stains, so give it a go!
- To begin, use a suede brush, toothbrush, emery board, or dry cloth to buff the stain away.
- Dot the area with suede cleanser and a dry towel if the stain persists.
It does not have to be a pain to protect and maintain the cleanliness of your favourite pair of UGG boots. Do some research on some quality suede cleaners, and be sure to take care of them properly so that they last a long time and are comfortable.
