Caring For Leather Boots


It takes more than just spending money on investing a good pair of leather boots. In order to keep them clean and in good condition, you need to exert some effort.

Always remember these simple tips in caring for your leather boots so you can enjoy them for a long time:

Make sure that your boots are always clean. This is the simplest and most sensible way of caring for your leather boots. It’s better to keep your boots clean from the time you purchased them so that they’ll always be in good condition. Make sure that you immediately remove any dirt, particularly mud, upon taking them off. You can use store-bought leather cleaner or a damp cloth.

You must condition your leather boots. You may use any regular leather conditioner. Avoid using those that contain wax or silicone. Do not apply the leather conditioner directly on your boots, use a lint-free cloth instead. Do several applications and allow 30-minute intervals. For best results, avoid soaking your boots in conditioners.

Take care of stains right away. Avoid permanent stains on your leather boots by cleaning and removing them right away, because stains can become permanent if left untreated. You can use oil-based leather conditioner all over the boot if there’s a stain that’s hard to remove.

Treat the stinky odors. Leather also has a stinky odor, but it is tolerable. However, a combination of stinky feet and leather odor can be problematic. You can use an odor treatment or baking soda to remove the stinking smell from your boots. Keep your boots in a paper bag with a small cup of baking soda for 24 hours. You can also put inside each boot an old sock filled with baking soda.

Properly store your boots. Make sure to clean and condition your boots first before storing them for a long time. In order to hold the shape of tall boots, you may use some stuffing material. You may use acid-free paper in this case. Do not store your boots in high-temperature areas such as your garage. If it’s too hot, say a constant 100 degrees, this can deteriorate your boots over time.

Lastly, make sure to keep your leather boots away from dyes, harsh chemicals and cleaning products. They are investments that need proper care to keep them in good shape and for you to enjoy them for a long time.
