How To Clean Sheepskin Boots
Knowing how to clean sheepskin boots is important if you expect to get your moneys worth out of them. If you don't clean sheep skin boots they will likely become so dirty you won't want to wear them. Sheepskin boots are generally expensive to purchase, but you don't have to spend a fortune to clean sheepskin boot properly.
To clean sheepskin boots you will need:
- Paper towels
- Soft bristle toothbrush
- Measuring cups
- Measuring spoons
- Dampen the surface of your sheepskin boots with a wet paper towel that is wrung out. Do not soak your boots, just carefully dab with the paper towel so the surface is moistened. Excess moisture will ruin your boots.
- Measure two cups of water. Measure two tablespoons of Woolite. Mix the two ingredients in a bowl to make a mild solution that will clean sheepskin boots gently.
- Submerge a clean sponge in the bowl of cleaning solution. Wring the sponge out so that is damp and not saturated.
- Blot, or dab the boots clean with the sponge. You may need to reapply the cleaning solution periodically depending upon how dirty your boots are. Be careful not to wipe to hard or use broad strokes when wiping or you may damage your boots.
- Scrub tougher stains with a soft bristle toothbrush dipped in the cleaning solution.
- Rinse the sponge out completely. Wet the sponge with cold water and use it to dab or blot away the cleaning solution from the surface of the sheepskin boots.
- Stuff your sheepskin boots with wadded up paper towels and let them air dry. Use a suede brush to re-fluff the nap of the surface after the boots are completely dry.
