How To Clean Your Duck Boots
Repair salt or snow stains right away
Avoid the boots damage from snow or salty streets by brushing the dirt off and wiping down the boots with a damp cloth. Apply stain remover as soon as possible after the contact and let it air dry overnight to remove stains.
Apply a boot protectant
It’s always the best idea to apply a boot protectant as you continue wearing them. This will help waterproof your boots and soften the leather so it doesn’t crack or give an aged looking appearance.
Pro tip: The more often you apply to the leather, the longer your boots will last longer.
Just like you apply moisturizer on your skin on winter weather, you also need to moisturize your boots regularly to maintain the shine and make the leather last longer.
Treat the rubber soles
During the winter, it’s the best to add a thin protective rubber sole to and already existing sole in order to extend the lifespan of existing sole. Most shoes repair shops offer the service, but you can get your own and do it yourself!
In addition to kill odors and clean the lining inside the boots, I lightly mist vinegar and water 50/50 solution. Once the interior is misted, take a cloth and wipe out the interior, focussing especially toe and heel areas.
Let the boots dry in a cool place for 24-48 hours. Don’t worry if you are worried about smell of vinegar, it will disappear quickly!
Sprinkle baby powder in your boots
Also if you don’t like to sprinkle vinegar, you can substitute with baby powder or baking soda. Every few weeks, sprinkle the inside of the bootswith baby powder to soak up the smell. Make sure to shake the excess powder out of your boots before wearing them 😉
