Love and Uggs: How to Care for Your Ugg Boots

Posted on

Ugg boots are a great addition to any wardrobe but to keep them looking their best, your boots need care and attention. Here are a few tips to help you keep your favourite boots in tip top condition.

First Steps 

It pays to invest in a few products to maintain your Uggs. Buy a suede or sheepskin protector spray to apply when you first get your boots. You should apply it before you wear them and it will help prevent staining and enhance the sheepskin's natural water resistance.

Every pair of well loved Uggs will start to show signs of wear sooner or later.  When you feel that they need a little TLC apply some sheepskin conditioner. This will brighten them up and help extend their lifespan.  

Regular Care 

Little things can make a big difference in caring for your boots. Use a soft bristled brush to brush them regularly. This will help to clean dust and dirt from the boots and keep them looking good. Try to brush the nap in one direction so your Uggs look their best. When storing your boots, always make sure they are dry and clean. Stuffing them with tissue paper will help them to stay dry and keep their shape. You may also want to use plastic boot shapers to help maintain shape.  

Inside and Out 

Looking after your Ugg boots isn't just about caring for the outside, they can often need some maintenance on the inside. You should always try to wear socks with your boots, as this will help to prevent the build up of odours. If you are wearing them without socks you should treat them with odour absorbers. If you don't want to spend money on odour treatments try dabbing a few drops of essential oil inside the boots to help keep them smelling fresh.  

Things to Avoid

Uggs are a classic for every season but sheepskin is delicate. Do not to expose your boots to too much water. If they do get wet, dry them as soon as possible and never let them soak in water or melted snow over night. This could both stain the boots and cause them to lose their shape. Avoid putting them directly near a heat source such as a radiator and try to keep them out of direct sunlight as much as possible, as this can fade the colour and weaken the sheepskin. 

With these simple tips, you should be able to keep the boots you love looking better, for longer. A local store, like Ugg boots Melbourne, might have some additional tips.
