How to Clean Salt From Shoes and Boots

Salt. It’s delicious on steak, but terrible on shoes. Walking around in winter slush can be hazardous to the life of your winter shoes and boots. Here’s how to keep them clean and low sodium, using simple ingredients found in your kitchen and pantry:

For Suede Shoes and Boots: Use a stiff-bristled brush to get as much salt and dirt off as you can. Next, mix one teaspoon fabric softener with a teaspoon of mild dish soap and two cups of lukewarm water. Dip a toothbrush in the mixture, shake off excess, and gently scrub the stained areas of the shoes in a circular motion until the stain lifts. Use a dry cloth to blot them dry, then air dry.

For Leather Shoes and Boots: Use a dry microfiber cloth to buff as much salt and dirt off the shoe as possible. Next, mix a tablespoon of white vinegar with room temperature water. Dip a rag into the solution and wring out any excess. Buff the stained areas and wipe dry. Allow to air dry.
