Step by Step Process.

For Mud Stains

Mud can be an annoying part of many winters worldwide. Some winters happen during the rainy season; hence due to the cold weather, people wear their Uggs almost everywhere. To clean mud off your Uggs, you will need to wait until the mud is dry. I mean very dry, like to the extent that you can scrape off the mud. At this point, you will make use of the brush to remove the physical parts of dust. 

Make sure that you clean all the dust to the best of your ability. At this point, you can dip the brush in water and scrub further. This should take care of the problem if it is just regular mud. If you stepped in something other than mud, then you may need a suede cleaner. 

For Water Stains

Water stains are among the most common that you can face. Whether it be wearing them in the kitchen while doing dishes or walking to the store in the rain. Water stains are almost inevitable. The best way that you can clean water stains is with a dry cloth and paper towels. 

All the wet areas you can see will need to be dried off with the cloth. It is important to do this before the water seeps through the shoe into the interior layer. This is because it could cause this section to rot. Once done, what you will do is put paper towels on your shoes inside and exterior. 

This will allow the paper towels to absorb any moisture that remains whilst the shoe dries. This should take care of the water stains. If it is not a water stain but another kind of liquid, you may have to use a suede cleaner.  

For Fur 

Uggs are warm and comfy, so why would our pets not take a liking to them the way we have. It is not uncommon that while wearing Uggs, your cat may come and lay by your feet. Due to suede’s sticky nature, it is also quite common that your uggs will pick it up if there is fur on the ground. 

This can be quite uncomfortable for someone who suffers from pet allergies. To clean these, you can add baking soda to the inside and outside of the shoe. This should neutralize any allergic reactions you may have. 

Allow this mixture to sit on your shoes for about 12 hours. Once this is done, you have equalized the pH of the shoe. At this point, what you will do is vacuum or brush off the baking soda you added to the shoe.  

How Long it will take.

Out of all three of these shoe cleaning processes, the most amount of time you will spend is about a day. Depending on the methods that you use to dry your shoe, it should not take longer than this amount of time. 

It can vary for different people depending on whether the sun is out. This is because it will affect the amount of time it takes for the uggs to dry. The cleaning process itself should not take you more than 30 minutes. 

Expected Results

You can expect that after this, your shoe will be clean and hygienic. You will be able to wear it safely in the house without bringing in any additional and unwanted bacteria or dirt. Depending on how well you cleaned the shoe, they should have a nice clean smell. Avoid using your shoes while they are still wet, even if they look clean. This can cause you illness because your feet will be cold.   

Things to look out for

You need to pay a large amount of attention when performing any of these cleanses. Suede is a very gentle material that can scratch easily. Therefore, when using the brush order vacuum on this shoe, you must be very gentle. You should also avoid using any natural cleaning chemicals that you pick up around the house. These will only damage your shoe.
