How to clean cowboy boots
YEEHAW! Now you've got your boots to hand, how do you clean 'em when you're done riding your horse around the desert (or you know... you stepped in dog poo on the way to Tesco)? According to Ariat, a well-renowned cowboy boots brand, it's as simple as four steps. (P.s this is for leather boots, not suede or distressed nubuck).
Using a damp cloth, clean any debris off the boot, and then use a soft brush to remove scuffs.
The important step- make sure after the first step that your boots have time to completely dry (no cheating with a hair-dryer, this can crack the leather).
Condition your boots with a dry cloth and leather conditioner. Use small circular motions. Do this until the material feels moisturised.
Polish with a standard leather polish, with the small circular motions you used before.
And hey presto- your boots are looking hella fresh once more. You're welcome.
