Ever since they appeared on the market in the early 2000s, Ugg boots have been adored by millions. It seemed that everyone had a pair of these. Even though this may not seem to be the case today, they are still widely popular.
After all, they are warm, comfy, and cozy. What’s there not to like? However, maintaining these can prove to be a bit of a challenge. Yes, there are several products you should use, but still, avoiding water stains is almost impossible. Due to this reason, we have created a short guide on removing these.
Start with a wet cloth
We know this may appear to be the odd first step since we are telling you to use a wet cloth to remove water stains but hear us out. We are not saying that you should soak the Ugg boots, but instead just wet the exterior. They need to be damp, and you can achieve this by wetting them with a cloth previously submerged in cold, clean water.
Apply the product
Now that your boots are damp, it is time to apply suede cleaner. You can purchase it anywhere and won’t have to worry about causing any damage since this product is specifically created for cleaning Ugg boots.
Similarly, you can also make your own solution by mixing white vinegar and water. Here the trick is to clean the entire boots, but you have to pay special attention to the stain areas. You should apply extra pressure when cleaning these stains.
However, you have to make sure not to scrub too harshly. If you do this, you risk damaging them. Upon concluding this task, go back to the wet cloths, and wipe the surface of the boots to remove the detergent. You need to be very thorough during this part of the process since the solution can also leave stains if not remove completely.
Stuff them with paper
The biggest concern people have when cleaning Ugg boots is regarding their shape. Due to this reason, once you have completed the two previously described steps, you should take some newspapers and stuff the inside of the boots with them.
This way, the shoes will maintain their shape drying. Yes, you should always let them air dry, and it can take anywhere between 12 and 16 hours. If you were to use some other method to dry them quickly, you would probably destroy them. We are not only talking about their shape but also their surface. Because of this requirement, it is recommended to clean them at least the day before wearing them.
Use a suede brush
Finally, you need to brush the boots. Surely they don’t look appealing after this process, which is why it is time to restore the original texture. You can simply do this with a suede brush. It shouldn’t take you more than a few minutes to restore their original appearance. Upon completing this task, there is one last thing you have to do. That’s right. Make sure to buy and use a water stain repellent to protect the shoes from this damage in the future.
