Winter and fall seasons are fraught with conditions like slush, sand and dirty snow that can shorten the life of your faux fur boots. One of the best and most effective protective measures you can take to preserve your faux fur boots is getting them dry cleaned. The next best strategy is to actually use upholstery cleaners. Since faux fur is a more complex material than is found in conventional boots, mere soap and water doesn’t do the trick. In fact, if you soaked faux fur in soapy water, you risk ruining the form and look of your fur boots by using this approach.
Should you be so unfortunate as to experience an accidental stain, the first step is to determine the exact location and depth of the stain on your boots. Them take a soft brush like a toothbrush and comb through the faux fur gently applying the agent directly on the stain combing the upholstery cleaner in until the dirt has disappeared. Be careful not to brush or scrub the stain in. The key to this remedy is to avoid tangling and knotting the fur strands as this will have the undesired effect of ruining the boots.
Should your faux fur boots get wet, do your best to dry out the material completely before attempting to clean it. If you accidentally tangle the fur, take a fine comb or soft bristle brush to unwind it and work it loose. For less invasive loose dirt particles, it’s safe to run a vacuum cleaner over the fur and complete the job with a fine brush. This is the preferred approach for regular cleaning and maintenance. Use these TLC tips to get the most mileage from your favorite pair of faux fur boots and have them looking brand new with each wear.
If your fur boots get wet, you want to get it dry as much as you can before cleaning it. Again this is to avoid creating knots in the fur. If by chance you do encounter a tangle use your soft bristle brush or fine comb to work it loose. For your random loose dirt or for maintenance cleaning, run a vacuum cleaner over the entire fur of the boots and finish off with a brush. Hopefully, using these tips, you’ll get the extra mileage out of your favorite faux fur boots and enjoy them for a long time to come.
