Here's a step-by-step guide on how to make your boots shine like new.

Step 1: Preparation and materials needed for boot and ankle boot cleaning

To clean your leather boots or ankle boots, you will need to have the following materials at hand:
  • a soft brush,
  • a microfibre cloth or soft sponge,
  • warm water; avoid hot water, as excessive heat can damage the leather and cause it to dry out
  • mild soap (such as Marseille soap or glycerine-based soaps); the use of harsh chemicals is not recommended, as they may damage the leather
  • and a quality leather conditioner.
When you have everything ready, we can get started.

Step 2: Removing dust and dirt on the leather

First, use the soft brush to gently remove any dust or dirt from the leather boots or ankle boots. Pay special attention to areas with creases or seams, as they tend to accumulate more dirt. After a good brushing of the boots, you can move on to the next step.

Step 3: Cleaning with mild soap and water

Soak the microfibre cloth or soft sponge in lukewarm water, but wipe off any excess water. Then apply a small amount of mild soap to the cloth or sponge and gently rub the surface of the boots in a circular motion. Be sure to clean all areas, paying particular attention to any visible stains or marks. Avoid getting the leather too wet, as this may damage it. Then dry the boots with a clean cloth.

Step 4: Conditioning the leather

A very important thing to do after cleaning is to condition the leather. Leather conditioners keep the leather soft and prevent dryness or cracking. Apply leather conditioner to a clean rag and rub it over the entire surface of the boots. The conditioner will help restore lost moisture and keep the leather supple and strong. Allow the conditioner to soak in for a few minutes and then wipe off any excess with a clean cloth.

Step 5: Regular storage and maintenance

This last step is essential to maintain the quality of boots and ankle boots. Store them in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight and moisture. Use lasts to avoid deformation. Remember to clean and condition your boots regularly to keep them in top condition.
In conclusion, cleaning leather boots or ankle boots is not as complicated as it seems. With the right products and a little time, you can keep your boots in excellent condition and enjoy their elegance and durability for a long time.
Dare to give them a little love and you'll see the difference!
