Sheepskin Product Care
Your Ugg Boots are not waterproof so you will need to waterproof them
using the Ugg Protector. Just spray your boots, allow 10 min to dry and
away you go! Waterproofing your sheepskin boots will protect your boots
from cooking oil, dirt or water and increase their life. Be aware
though, that once your footwear get wet, you need to apply another coat
after they have dried. The first time this coating is applied should
ideally be when the footwear is new.
Washing the uggs
Wet entire boot or shoe with cold water. Use the special Shampoo &
Conditioner to a clean sponge or soft brush.
Clean entire area thoroughly and evenly. You might use an old toothbrush
to help in the washing process. Once you have washed and rinsed the
footwear in cold water, place them in your washing machine and put it on
a spin cycle for a few minutes just to get rid of the excess water.
Reshape by stuffing with paper towel.
Allow to dry naturally and slowly - DO NOT dry in direct heat or
You will notice once the footwear have dried that they have shrunk
slightly but this is normal. After wearing them for an hour or so, they
will go back to the normal, warm and comfortable state you are used to
and at the same time, be clean.
Brushing the uggs
Once footwear is dry, lightly brush with the rug brush in one direction only to raise the nap and natural tracking.
DO NOT SOAK if possible
DO NOT USE FABRIC CONDITIONER
DO NOT USE ANY ARTIFICIAL HEAT TO DRY
DO NOT DRY IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT
DO NOT DRY CLEAN
Removing the stains
If you have a grease stain on your footwear, use a razor or sharp knife
to scrub some powder from a white chalk over the stain, leave it for a
few minutes. Then blow away the access chalk and with your hand, gently
rub the stain. Repeat this a few times until the stain has almost
disappeared. For extremely tough stains you can gently rub the stain
with sandpaper but beware that this may take the colour away.
Removing Rain Spots
Sometimes you can get what we call "spotting" where the footwear have
come into contact with a few drops of water. You can usually eliminate
this by folding the footwear onto itself, that is skin against skin, and
gently rub it together.
Deodorizing your Uggs
Use a mixture of 2 tsp. baking soda and 2 tsp. corn flour to deodorize
and soften the inside of the boots. If you wish, you can add a few drops
of an essential oil to create a sweet scent. Shake the mixture into the
boots and let it stand overnight. Shake the excess out the next day.
