Can you clean Uggs with soap and water?

You do not want them to be soaking wet! Too much water will damage the sheepskin. In a small bowl combine 1/2 cup of cold water and 1/2 a cup of distilled white vinegar. Dip a clean, damp cloth into the mixture and use it to gently scrub away any stains on your boots.

How do you restore faded black Uggs?

Black boots are particularly important to clean as stains show up easily. For routine cleaning, you can use white vinegar and water. If the color fades during the cleaning process, you can re-dye the boots as needed using black suede dye. Set in stains can be removed with corn starch or talcum powder.

Do you wear socks with Uggs?

This means not wearing socks with your genuine, Australian made UGGs. Now, it may have been your first thought to wear socks with your UGGs to protect them from the brunt of your inevitably unpleasant foot odour. However, UGG boots were originally designed to be worn without socks for this reason.

Why are Uggs expensive?

But what makes these boots so popular? It can't be the style, because they are simple and boring. It can't be the price, because they are too costly for the quality. “Uggs” are a unisex style of sheepskin boot that Australia and New Zealand lay claim to creating as early as the 1920s.

What do you put on Ugg boots to protect them?

Avoid direct sunlight or heat. Protect your boots and prevent staining by spraying with UGG SHEEPSKIN PROTECTOR. Apply outdoors or in a well-ventilated area. Shake bottle, hold about six inches away from boot, and spray sheepskin evenly until boot is wet, but not soaked.

Are Ugg boots worth the money?

That being said- yes they are worth it. The quality is much better, the soles aren't as slippery, they're more comfy, and just better all around than the target or Walmart kind. Oh and to add- my oldest pair is 3 years old and they're still in great condition considering how much I beat them up.
