Because faux leather ankle boots are usually worn during the cold season, especially during winter, they are highly susceptible to cracks, peels, and difficult to remove dirt and stains!
That’s why I’m going to share with you some of the best techniques you can use in order to not only get rid of these problems, but to also prevent your faux leather ankle boots from cracking and losing their shine and “health” during winter time.
The first step you should take is in nourishing the faux leather fabric in your ankle boots the right way.
And you do this by using the right products, and in fact, there is only one you should use, and its saddle soap.
Most are going to think that saddle soap is especially designed for real leather boots and shoes, but this is completely wrong, you can use it with faux leather ankle boots as well because the fabric is also going to absorb the moisturizing chemicals and fats in this amazing product.
And the wonderful thing is that it is very cheap! So, get a good quality one and apply about two tablespoons to your faux leather ankle boots, wipe very gently and do not use more than this amount, just a few tablespoons are more than enough to prevent cracks and peels.
When you are done, let your boots breathe and dry near an open window, it’s very important because it will make the saddle soap be absorbed.
Let’s talk now about how to clean your faux leather ankle boots the right way.
I can advice you to use vinegar or warm water, but these solutions are not very effective if you are dealing with heavy stains, especially if you use your ankle boots all the time, which I do not recommend because the moisture coming from your skin is very damaging, you should let them breathe and always use this rule: one day of use to two days of rest.
The best product I can recommend for you in order to clean your faux leather ankle boots is by this brand: Blue Magic, and it’s the same I use in my shop, it’s very easy to use and gives amazing results.
And the thing I recommend that you do is to be very reactive, whenever you have stains, get rid of as much as possible using a dry cloth and then apply your faux leather cleaner, it’s amazing.
