How to Get Nail Polish Off Ugg Boots

Intended for nails only, nail polish always seems to find its way to other surfaces. And when it does it's never a small problem. Nail polish leaves noticeable stains behind on everything it touches, and depending on the surface, it may or may not be a big deal. If nail polish finds its way onto your Ugg boots it can seem like a disaster as these sheepskin boots require a special kind of care to keep them clean. Though this may seem like a catastrophic situation, your boots can quickly be restored to their pre nail polish spill state with minimal effort.

Step 1

If the nail polish is dry, scrape away as much of it as you can with a plastic scraper. If the nail polish is still damp, blot the area gently with a clean cloth or paper towels.

Step 2

Dampen a clean cloth with non-acetone nail polish remover.

Step 3

Wipe the stained area with the cloth to remove the stain.

Step 4

Rinse the area with a clean damp cloth that's wrung out well to avoid excess moisture getting on the boots.

Step 5

Allow the boots to air dry in a cool dry place.

Step 6

Use a suede brush on the area to raise the nap again.

Step 7

Spray the boots with Ugg Water and Oil Repellent Spray and leave them to dry for 10 minutes. Read and follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully.
