This step by step how to clean Ugg boots guide will help bring your Uggs back to their former glory. This method made mine look (almost) brand new!
Last Christmas I had to have a pair of monogram Uggs. Being a southern girl in SoCal, I never imagined I would use them that much. They were in mint condition until I moved to Canada where I wore them almost EVERY SINGLE DAY. They looked awful, so I thought I would share my How to Clean Ugg Boots without ruining them and with very little effort.
The before is pretty tragic. I mean, what is better than their soft cuddly goodness when it is -20C outside? Staying home in my house slippers, yes, but not an option. I would wear them in the snow covered/slightly melting parking lot and they started to develop some weird water lines. Their usage quadrupled this past month, so I had to figure out a cleaning/protection strategy fast. Plus, if you haven’t noticed, I have been on a major cleaning kick lately.
What you need to Clean Ugg Boots:
- Suede Cleaning Kit
- Ugg Protector Spray
- Remove all dirt from the outside. This is so incredibly important since leaving excess dirt only pushes into the sheepskin. You got to get that off before you start the cleaning process. I used a suede cleaning kit that comes with a rubber eraser & brush.
- Remove scuff & some stains with the rubber eraser. The eraser was great for the sole of the shoe as well as some of the stains. I was amazed at this process. I brushed off the excess with the brush.
- Slightly dampen the entire boot with vinegar solution. I used 1 part water to 1 part vinegar. I only made up about 1/2 a cup worth of the solution. Take the washcloth and dip into the the solution to completely clean the shoe. I tried not to over saturate the boot buy working on a tiny area at a time. Proceed to the next step working one boot at a time.
- Rinse the boot. Don’t go crazy, use the same method as cleaning the boot. Use as little water as possible by using a wash cloth dipped in water. Once done, move to the second boot.
- Dry Completely. After repeating the process for both boots, fill the boot with paper to form shape and allow to dry completely. Place in a dry spot out of the sunlight.
- Brush the boot and apply Ugg Protector. I used my suede brush to refresh the boot fabric. Next, I reapplied my Ugg Boot protector. This protector is super important to use since it repels water and prevents stains. I will never make the mistake of not applying it to my boots ever again! Completely dampen the boot with the spray without saturating the boot. Once dry, fluff again with the suede brush.
