Cleaning your sheepskin boots can seem a little scary, but the truth is you just need to know how to clean Uggs or sheepskin boots the right way! This step-by-step tutorial will show you how to clean your boots carefully so you can wear them even after they've gotten dirty, have gotten snow melting salt on them or after they've gotten completely wet and spotted…you will love your Uggs again in no time!
Last winter, we took a family trip to New York. It rained the entire time we were there. Kate and I had worn our Ugg boots so our feet would stay warm...we had no idea it was going to rain...we expected snow instead. Well, it rained buckets, and our Uggs got soaked. When we got home, we assumed that they were ruined. I couldn't bring myself to throw them away, so I just put them in our garage. Well, it's fall now, and time to break out all of our boots. I decided that I would see if I could get our boots to come clean, and I am so happy that I did! They came clean and are now ready to wear for another winter! This method will work on all sheepskin boots and I even included a video tutorial at the end of this post! I hope it helps someone rescue their boots and save some money!

How to Clean Sheepskin Boots or Uggs
- Gently dry brush any dirt and debris off of your boots using a dry scrub brush.
- Make cleaning solution.
Add 2 tablespoons of Castile soap to a large bowl of cold water and mix well. Do not use hot water, because it will make the color of the sheepskin bleed more.
- Gently scrub boots.
Take a scrub brush and gently massage the water mixture into the boot. Some of the dye will come off in the water, but no worries…your boots will retain their color. Go ahead and lightly scrub the entire boot.
- Clean with microfiber cloth.
Use a clean microfiber cloth to wipe down the clean boots.
- Allow your boots to dry overnight.
- Use a soft baby brush to brush the sheepskin in a downward motion.
- Enjoy wearing your boots again!
