Boots worn for a winter, even if you don’t step on the snow, the inside of the boots will be damp due to sweating on your feet, so you should put the boots in a cool, dry and ventilated place for a few days before storing, so that the inside of the boots will slow down. Slow drying, do not put it in the sun, even if it will not be deformed by the high temperature, it may be faded due to long-term direct exposure to the sun. You can start cleaning the boots after the shoes do not feel damp to the touch. .
Clean before storing
After a winter baptism, there must be some stains on the boots. Try to clean up these stains before storing, otherwise the stains will easily penetrate into the leather of the boots as time goes by, and then you have to clean it again. Not good results. For patent leather boots, use a dry soft cloth to wipe off the performance of the ash; general stains such as mud spots and other stains floating on the surface of the boots should be wiped with a dry cloth slightly moistened with water and then wiped with a dry cloth immediately, be sure to pay attention to the cloth Don’t get too wet, otherwise it will damage the leather; if it is a liquid stain, it is recommended to go to a professional leather shoe care store to clean it as soon as possible when the stain is just stuck. The longer the stain, the more difficult it will be to clean.
Don’t forget about boot maintenance
At present, the leather on the surface of the boots is mainly pure leather, so don’t forget to apply the upper layer of shoe polish to the boots after cleaning the boots (do not oil the patent leather boots). When polishing the shoes, don’t think that the more shoe polish, the better. Shoes really play a protective role, otherwise too much oil will be a burden on the leather. After all, there is so much leather. If you apply too much shoe polish, the leather on the shoes cannot absorb so much. Boots that have been put on shoe polish should also be placed in a cool, dry and ventilated place for 1 day, so that the shoe polish can be fully absorbed, and some excess shoe polish can also be volatilized.
