Tips for Cleaning Sheepskin Slipper Boots

An increasingly popular fashion trend is having a pair of sheepskin slipper boots. These boots are ideal for around the house or casual wear. They can be paired with jeans or leggings, and many come in various colours to match different outfits in your wardrobe. The issue for many people who wear their boots often is how to clean the sheepskin material properly. Here are some tips for cleaning and caring for your pair.

Brush First

Your first reaction when cleaning your sheepskin slippers may be to use water or a cleaning fluid. The problem with this action is with the debris that may be present on the slippers already. You may have dirt or dust that you can't see on the fabric. When you use a cleaning solution first, you will spread that debris around causing more to clean and the spread of debris that can stain the material. Instead, use a soft-bristled shoe brush or brush designed for sheepskin. This can help remove loose debris and can loosen the stained area or dirt to help remove it without water or solutions.

Sponge Clean

If you find that you need to clean the material beyond a good brushing, grab a sponge instead of a cloth or other harder brush. The sponge should be soft and only damp with warm water. Try to avoid using a heavily wet sponge. Make sure to avoid soaps during this step as well. The water and sponge, while using a blotting technique, can remove most of the debris or dirt that you will gather on your sheepskin.

Dry and Brush

You started off with a brushing technique, and you need to end with one as well. Once you have cleaned the sheepskin slipper boots, make sure to allow them to dry. This may take a few hours or overnight depending on how much water you used. Once the boots are dry, use a brush to brush out the sheepskin. Make sure you are using a brush that will not damage the material. For example, use a brush that is made for the material or use a suede brush that you can purchase at most shoe stores.

These are just a few of the tips for cleaning your sheepskin slipper boots. If you have a harder stain to remove, you may want to consider taking them to a dry cleaner. The cleaner can get out stains that home remedies and cleaning can not. They can also help maintain the life and durability of your sheepskin so that it continues to offer the benefits it is known for.

Shopping online for furniture

I've always been a fan of seeing goods before buying them, but lately I've gotten really into online shopping. It's amazing how many cool items you can find online that you can't get in local bricks and mortar stores. Sometimes you can get really high-quality items that you wouldn't usually be able to afford simply because the shop owners don't have to pay all the costs of running a fancy shop in an expensive location. This blog has some of my great finds and some tips on how to know which sites have the best quality products. Let's go shopping!
