Remove salt stains with dish soap.

Salt stains quickly collect on Ugg boots when you travel on foot through wet, snowy conditions. The salt on roads, driveways and sidewalks leaves an unattractive white or grayish film on the boots when it dries, deteriorating the appearance of the boots dramatically. Luckily, these salt stains can be removed with a few inexpensive items that are probably already on hand in your cupboard.


Step 1

Pour 1 cup of water and 1/2 tsp. of dish soap into a cup.

Step 2

Dip a toothbrush into the cup and stir to create soap suds.

Step 3

Scoop the suds only onto the toothbrush, and scrub the suds into the salt stains.


Step 4

Moisten a cleaning cloth with plain water, and rub it over the boots to remove the lifted salt residue and any remaining soap.

Step 5

Dip the edge of a cleaning cloth into white vinegar, and rub it in small, circular motions over difficult stains that are not removed by the soapy water.

Step 6

Wipe a damp cloth over the boots after all salt has been removed to collect the salt residue and vinegar.
