If you haven’t noticed from walking around the sidewalks in town, salt season is here. That means ugly, crusty stains on your nice new boots. But don’t despair! Here’s some step-by-step advice on how to protect your leather boots from winter salt conditions and keep them looking great all season long.
Step 1: When you notice salt rings on your boots, wash them with a cloth in equal parts vinegar and water to remove all dirt and debris. Or, to avoid needing to wash the salt out of your boots so frequently, wipe them down with a dry cloth every time you come in the door.
Step 2: Let your boots dry fully. Don’t leave them next to a direct heat source like a woodstove or radiator! This could cause the leather to crack. Buff them with a cloth to remove any last debris leftover from the washing.
Step 3: Use a leather treatment to protect and condition your boots – be sure to complete steps 1 and 2 first or you’ll seal in all that grime! Depending on the product you choose, you may need to first apply a leather restorer and then a separate waterpoofing, or use an all-in-one. Let the treatment sit overnight, and buff off any excess with a dry cloth in the morning.
Step 4: Repeat once a week throughout the slushy months of winter, or whenever you notice salt lines sneaking back in.
It’s easy to keep your boots clean and beautiful for under $10 at The Shoe Horn! We have a full selection of leather restorers and waterproofing waxes and sprays – and we’re happy to help you find the best one for your boots! Stop in for recommendations!
