How to Keep your Ugg Boots Looking Like New
UGG boots have remained popular over the years, becoming part of many people’s regular daily wear.
However, they’re not exactly inexpensive, and UGG boots need to be cared for well.
It’s a good idea to take care of your UGG boots because, unlike an old pair of sneakers, they don’t look so great when they’re well used.
Oil, grease, water, heat, and dirt can easily get into them and do some harm to their look. To keep your UGG Boots looking sharp, however, will require some ongoing work to restore their beauty.
Consider some of the following tips to keep your Ugg Boots from Ugg Boots Express looking good for as long as possible. We’ve included some helpful tips when dealing with stains, odours, dirt, and any possible tear in the wool.
Hot and Cold Weather Solutions
UGG Boots that are soaked in water or from melted snow can leave water stains and twist the boots’ shape out of proportion.
Prevention is way better than cure here, so we recommend that even before wearing them you should spray your boots with a water and stain repellent. This will prevent any initial staining and keep dirt from leaking into the boot’s material.
The best way to do this is to first moisten the exterior of the boot with cold water and a soft sponge or cotton cloth. This will allow the contents of the water repellent spray to get through into the suede or leather.
Maybe you might suffer from problems at the other end of the temperature scale.
Leaving your UGG Boots next to a heater or even wearing them outside on a sunny day can fade their colour and make them feel dry and crusty.
When not wearing your UGG boots it’s even a good idea to insert boot shapers.
Leather in older boots can often have an odour. Whether the UGG Boots are authentic or fake (the cheaper brands are usually not the real deal), using suede cleaner and a teaspoon of baking powder can get the smells out.
If your Ugg Boots start to smell a little off, try sprinkling them with some baking soda, give it a good shake and leave the boot overnight.
This is one of the simplest ways to keep your boosts smelling fresh and odour free.
As a general rule, try not to soak your boots or drench them in water as a means of removing odour. Keep them out of the tub and out of the washing machine. If you need to wash them to get out an odour, use a damp cloth and give them a gentle sponge bath. Any form lost by wetness will usually recover when dry.
To keep odours out, you could also try and wear socks when wearing your UGG Boots.
If the UGG Boots start looking dirty, use a special shampoo for suede or leather.
Get a brush that’s stiff to remove any dirt, but be gentle as it could leave scratch marks. When finished, stuff the boots with newspapers, socks, or rags and let them sit for one day to keep their shape after being washed.
Oily stains like grease require cornstarch or talcum powder. Sprinkle some on the stain and then let it sit overnight to allow the cornstarch or powder to absorb the stain.
Chalk has also been known to help remove oily stains.
Sometimes, it’ll require two attempts to get a stain out completely.
For the same reason we mentioned above, don’t be tempted to dry your UGG Boots near a heater or out in the sun or even outside.
Keep the drying process indoors, letting the powders and shampoos, deal with the stains, and whatever you’ve stuffed inside to absorb any water or moisture.
Finish the process off with slow air drying in a well-ventilated area. After all, you don’t want your boots all smelly and dank.
With your boots all looking like new again, they’ll return to your collection as they began – a shoe that never fails in fashion and doesn’t go out of style.
The UGG Boots lack of shape and unique silhouette gives the boot some fashion character. And as a trend that’s lasted for decades, they’ll continue to stand the test of time, unlike the come-and-go eye-popping foot fashion that pass by every year.
But do your part in keeping them looking good, and your UGG Boots will have a long life of show-off style, keeping your feet warm and looking great doing so.
