How to Clean Timberland Boots With Vinegar

Timberland boots are synonymous with fashion, but they are also very efficient workboots. And if you happen to use your timberland boots for work activities, you probably get them murky more times than you would wish.

While it is easy to clean regular boots made out of leather, timberland boots are a different case. This is because they are made of suede.

How To Clean Timberland Boots With Vinegar

Using a vinegar solution is the best way to clean timberland boots. This is because it is a natural cleaning agent and will not ruin the suede. It is also cheap and fast-acting.

Items Needed

  • A cup of water
  • White vinegar
  • A brush
  • Soft cotton cloth
  • Soft-bristled brush

Use the brush to remove any dust or mud caked onto the boots. You can also use a towel to wipe the dirt or any other debris from the shoe.  Also, clean the bottom of the boots. Then remove and wash the shoelaces using warm water and soap.  Rinse them and hang them to dry.

Mix one cup of water with one tablespoon of white vinegar. Then use the cotton cloth to apply the vinegar solution to your timberland boots. Leave it on for a few minutes, then rub the boots gently to wipe off the stains. Air-dry the timberland boots once you have wiped off the stains.

Alternatively, you can use bread to rub the stains off the boots, then apply talcum powder on the stains and let it soak for at least 4 hours. Then proceed to use the vinegar solution to clean the timberland boots.
