Unsalt Those Shoes

Keeping salt stains from building up on your shoes during the winter can be a challenge, but before you get frustrated and throw them out, follow these three simple steps:

  • Combine water and vinegar, and mix well.
  • Dip towel into the mixture, and wipe gently over the surface of your shoe. Continue this until the stains have fully disappeared.
  • Let the shoes dry naturally. Using artificial heat could cause the leather to fade.

If your show are polishable, this is would a good right to refresh the shine. 

After the initial clean, you'll want to let your shoes dry before any further cleaning or conditioning.
