Handmade leather boots are definitely a hot item among women. Whether you got your boots as a gift or you purchased them yourself you want to be able to take proper care of them or clean them when you need to. Check out the following tips to help you clean your leather boots and keep them looking good for a long time.
Removing Water Spots
You can get rid of water spots on your handmade leather boots by using more water. What you need to do is get a clean cloth and dampen it with a little water before applying it directly to the wet spot on your boots. Make sure you wipe thoroughly and then let it air dry.
To remove any kind of dirt, mud, or dust from your leather boots dampen a clean rag with some warm, soapy water. Use the rag to wipe off any form of stains, dirt, or mud on the surface of the shoes. Make sure you don’t get the leather soaked.
Now, once all of the grime is removed from the surface apply a good leather cleaner to take out any deeper stains or heavier soiling so your leather can look clean again.
After using the leather cleaner you’ll then need to apply a good leather conditioner in order to stop the leather from getting cracked or drying out. The leather conditioner will help replenish most of the minerals and essential oils that were removed by the cleaning you did earlier. Read the directions and do as it says so that your leather can stay soft and as durable as when you first got it.
Last but not least is the shoe polish. Make sure you use a good leather shoe polish on your handmade boots to keep them shining and looking like you just bought them.
This is an extensive cleaning process but it is definitely worth it if you want to prevent any dirt, dust, mud, or grime from ruining your nice handmade leather boots. You can also use this cleaning procedure to keep your boots from deteriorating over time.
Removing Ink Stains
Ink stains can be one of the most difficult stains to clean off your leather boots. Using isopropyl alcohol is one of the best ways to get rid of ink stains. Dip a cloth in the alcohol and then thoroughly apply it to the ink stain on your boots.
If you don’t have any alcohol you can use hairspray since it has alcohol inside it. Spray it onto the stain and let it sit for a while before removing. You may have to apply the alcohol to the ink stain numerous times before it is finally removed from the leather.
Try making a solution of 1 part water, 1 part rubbing alcohol, and 3 drops of tea tree oil to help clean off ink stains and other blemishes from your handmade leather boots. Make sure you scrub thoroughly and allow it to air dry.
