How To Care For & Clean Sheepskin Slippers & Sheepskin Boots
Before first wearing your new sheepskin slippers or sheepskin boots and after every clean we recommend using a good water-based weather protector on the suede leather upper of the sheepskin slippers or sheepskin boots. This will help prevent the suede leather from absorbing stains and attracting dirt. It is important to clean the sheepskin slippers or sheepskin boots as soon as it is stained and before the stain has time to set. You can spot-clean the suede leather upper and hand wash the sheepskin lining of the sheepskin slippers or sheepskin boots by following these simple three steps:
Cleaning The Suede or Leather Upper of The Sheepskin Footwear
To spot-clean, use a damp, soft cloth or nylon bristle brush with no soap. For a suede upper gently remove scuff marks and dirt with a suede-cleaning eraser or suede brush.
Cleaning The Shearling or Sheepskin Lining
Apply a small amount of wool shampoo and hand wash in lukewarm water, do not machine wash. Gently scrub the sheepskin using your fingers, clean sponge or a soft brush and rinse thoroughly with clean lukewarm water.
Drying The Sheepskin Slippers or Sheepskin Boots
Rid the product of any excess water by wrapping it in a clean, dry towel. Air-dry naturally, away from direct sunlight. Never dry with a hair-dryer, on a radiator or in a tumble dryer. When dry, brush the wool out with a clean soft brush.
In some cases, there may be some colour transfer when the suede upper of the sheepskin slippers or sheepskin boots is rubbed against another surface or from normal daily wear. The colour may also bleed or leach out into the water when the suede gets wet or when washed the first time.
