How to Keep Your Ugg Boots Clean
Ugg sheepskin boots are unlike any other fashion trend ever. First, have remained popular since they were introduced in the last century, they are no longer just a “trend”.
We think “fashion legend” is more appropriate.
But even legends need some TLC and Uggs need it more than most, especially in winter.
6 Steps to Keep Your Ugg Boots Clean
Before we jump into how to keep your pair of Uggs clean, it’s important to know what you should never do to them.
- Never wash them in a washing machine.
- Never dry them in a dryer. In fact, keep them away from all heat sources.
- Never leave them in direct sunlight.
It’s good to know all that because your Uggs will probably need to be cleaned fairly often in the winter. You should clean them as soon as you notice a mark or stain. The longer you leave marks and stains untreated, the more likely they are to become permanent. Here’s the proper cleaning process for your Uggs.
- What You’ll Need
- A suede brush
- A damp sponge
- Sheepskin cleaner.
- A boot dryer, or something clean to stuff inside the boots that will keep their shape as they dry.
- Get Rid of Loose Dirt & Salt – Gently brush the boot with the suede brush to remove loose dirt and salt stains.
- Moisten the Boot – Use cold water to gently moisten the entire exterior of the boot.
- Wipe the Boot – Apply the sheepskin cleaner (you can try cleaning the boot without the cleaner, but it improves your chances of getting the boot clean) to the damp sponge and gently wash the outside of the boot.
- Air Dry – Use the boot dryer or stuff the boots with clean cloths to maintain their shape, and leave them in a cool, well-ventilated area for at least 24 hours.
- Brush Them – Once they are thoroughly dry, use the suede brush and brush the boots in a single direction.
