The cold, wet winter season can be very hard on your leather boots. Rain, snow, salt, and dirt all take serious tolls on the comfort and durability of your boots so it is important to take extra care of them during these colder months. The following steps can help you clean and protect your boots from being damaged during peak-boot season.
- Brush off any loose snow, dirt, or salt outside. Pick a clean, flat place and cover it with an old sheet, tablecloth, or newspaper. You want to be sure to protect the surfaces of your home from the cleaning process of the dirty boots.
- Clean your boots with Leather Honey Leather Cleaner and a soft, damp rag. Gently rub any spots or stains and then apply the cleaning solution evenly to the rest of the boot. As you clean the boots, keep your hand inside the boot to keep its shape.
- Let your boots dry, but keep out of direct sunlight and away from high heat.
- Apply a thin, even layer of Leather Honey Leather Conditioner to the entire boot. Allow the leather conditioner to dry and absorb.
- Re-clean your boots at least twice during the season and brush off debris periodically as needed. Finally, be sure to clean your boots, dry thoroughly, and condition before finally stowing your boots for the summer months. Any dirt, salt, or stains that are left untreated over time can become permanent. Additionally, any mold that grows on wet boots can also contaminate other items being stored nearby.
With proper care and Leather Honey leather care products, you can ensure that your valuable boots remain comfortable and durable for whatever winter weather you encounter.
