I love pretty much everything about Ugg boots but when they get stained or dirty, my affection for them vanishes into thin air. Recently I’ve discovered a simple way of cleaning Ugg boots and since it is so simple and effective, I won’t hesitate to share it with you. Regardless of what type of stain you are dealing with, begin the cleaning process by brushing the boots with a brush, as this will remove any traces of dirt. It is an essential step if you want to prevent the dirt from getting entrenched in the leather.
Don’t hesitate to get your hands a bit dirty, because some gently scrubbing is required to avoid soaking the Ugg boots in too much water. Since sagging is a serious danger for this footwear, stuff something like newspapers or socks inside them to preserve their original shape. Don’t be hasty and give the boots plenty of time to dry, with 48 hours being the least that you should wait to prevent them from stretching.
I know that you are tempted to accelerate the process by exposing the boost to a heat source or even leave them outside for the sun to dry them, but please refrain from doing so. It is not worth causing wrinkles to your beautiful Ugg boots, just because you were not patient enough.
