One of the most essential steps you need to take in order to prevent your black faux leather boots from getting damaged with water and other elements is to waterproof them, and this is what I’m going to show you in this post.
Of course, there are some more traditional techniques for waterproofing your boots such as applying saddle soap and other greases, but today, I would like to talk about a very efficient technique that’s also very friendly when it comes to black faux leather fabrics.
Because we are dealing with black faux leather, which is very fragile especially when it comes to liquids and UV rays, I highly recommend that you start using this technique when you would like to waterproof your boots and also make them resistant and highly durable:
Use baby boy!
Throughout my career, I have found that only two greases are really good when it comes to black faux leather boots, they are saddle soap and baby oil.
However, most of you are going to think that baby oil is not very helpful but from my experience, it’s sometimes even much more efficient than saddle soap.
How to apply baby oil to your black faux leather boots?
Just use some few drops and wipe very gently using a dry cloth, don’t use a sponge which is rough on the surface, in fact, you should always use soft materials and fabrics in order to wipe and clean your faux leather fabrics.
After you are done applying baby oil, just wait some few minutes, and then apply it a second time.
This time, it’s going to penetrate deeply into the fabric and make it waterproof for at least one month!
And in your case, things can be different a little, because I live in the South of France, it doesn’t rain a lot, however, if you live in a rainy area, use this technique at least once every two weeks, it will give you an amazing protection for your black faux leather boots.
