The wet weather is here and everyone wants to step outside feeling warm and cosy! However, you don't want your ugg boots to get damaged by water on your morning coffee run or trip down to the grocery store.
While a number of our ugg boot styles are water-resistant already, including our Australian Shepherd Nappa Ugg Boots and Australian Shepherd Short Button Ugg Boots (watch the video below - the proof is in the pudding), there is no harm in adding an extra layer of protection!
In this blog, we share how you can waterproof ugg boots at home and keep your ugg boots fresher for longer.
Ensure your ugg boots are clean
It's best to waterproof your ugg boots as soon as you buy them - but you can also give your used ugg boots a clean to make sure the waterproofing is as effective as possible.
To get rid of any dirt on your boots, our Multi-Purpose Suede Ugg Brush is essential. Our brush has four applicator heads – two for boot edges and seams and two for suede – making it a versatile tool to get your ugg boots as clean as possible.
Ensure that you are brushing your boots in one direction and brush your entire boot for optimum results.
Before waterproofing ugg boots, we recommend washing off tougher dirt, too. Rather than putting your ugg boots in the washing machine (which we do not recommend), gently dab them with a wet sponge, ensuring the entire boot is damp.
Spray our Ugg Boot Cleaning Spray and Detergent onto the sponge and gently clean the outside of your boots – avoid scrubbing as this can damage the suede.
When you have finished cleaning your ugg boots, dab them with a clean sponge to remove any leftover residue and allow them to dry completely in a ventilated space.
Protecting your waterproof ugg boots
Before heading out in the damp weather, it's a good idea to spray your ugg boots with our Ugg Boot Water and Oil Repellent to reduce any damage and protect them from mould and mildew.
Spray until your ugg boots look wet but are not soaked and then leave to dry in a ventilated area. If you would like, you can brush them again once dry.
Your ugg boots will now be ready to be taken outside in the winter weather!
