Cleaning Ugg Boots – How to effectively clean lambskin boots


The classic Ugg Boot is essentially made like a glove. The sheep’s wool clings softly to the skin, and the sole is only slightly shaped. The leather used for the exterior of the boots is predominantly high-quality suede and is thus porous. Before lambskin boots are worn outside for the first time, therefore, they must be impregnated. Otherwise, you will quickly start to notice signs of use. And then the Ugg Boot will unfortunately live up to its 
name.

For the best results, Ugg Boots should always be cleaned first of all with a cleaning brush or the Nubuck Box from Collonil for nubuck leather. This perks up the leather structure again. Rough dirt can be brushed off through gentle rubbing. It is important to keep the boot dry. If not, you may work the dirt particles into the leather. Less is more here: otherwise the suede may lose its structure.

After cleaning, leave the lambskin boots to dry for at least 24 hours. This allows water to evaporate from the lambskin fibres. Ugg Boots are sensitive to light and heat, so never place them in the sun. If you clean the Ugg Boots, always be sure to work on both boots. Every time you clean them, the lambskin fibres lose pigment and become paler.

If your Ugg Boots are very dirty, Collonil’s BAMBOO LOTION is the perfect solution. Using this product, dirt can be removed with extreme ease. The bamboo extract also prevents the material from drying out. Any recommendations to wash the sensitive lambskin boots with water should be ignored: this will make your Ugg Boots truly ugly!  

Great advice from Collonil Germany, who definitely know their materials!
