Winter is around the corner and we are counting the days until the first snow fall. Weepaa! I just can’t wait! Well, snow would be perfect if it wouldn’t melt at some point creating that filthy, disgusting dirt on the sidewalk and driveways, and if you are walking on foot through these snowy conditions it’s basically impossible not to wet your shoes, especially the sheepskin UGG. Often, the salt on roads leaves an unattractive white or grayish film on the boots when it dries, deteriorating the boots completely.
Removing salt stains on sheepskin UGG might not seem so difficult, but you have to keep in mind some important facts about dyed suede: many methods will remove salt stains, but they will also take the color along with it. So, be careful which one you choose.
In order to clean dyed sheepskin UGG’s without removing the color, you should try the following steps:
- 1 cup of water
- ½ teaspoon of dish soap
- toothbrush with soft bristles
- 2 cloths
Steps To Follow:
- Mix 1 cup of water with dish soap in a small bowl. Take the toothbrush and stir well into the bowl to create soap suds.
- Now, take the soap suds with the toothbrush and scrub the salt stains from the boots.
- The next steps is to soak 1 cloth in warm water, wring it well, and then rub the boots to remove any remaining salt stains and scoop.
Well done! Just leave the boots to dry naturally. However, if the salt stains didn’t disappear from your boots, you may want to try removing them with vinegar.
- Mix equal parts of water and vinegar and soak a cloth in the solution. Start rubbing those stubborn stains using circular motions.
Proceed with caution! Even a diluted 50/50 solution of vinegar and water can cause fading and dye loss in colored suede. So, you may want to try the solution on a small portion. If there are any changes in the color you can add more water to the mix.
