Spa Day for Your Uggs: Cleaning & Drying Secrets

How to look after your Ugg Boots

Looking for easy ways to care for your Ugg boots at home?

Believe it or not, washing them in the washing machine is a viable option! Here's how to refresh your favorite Uggs while maintaining their luxurious feel:

Gentle Machine Wash for Deep Clean:

  • Protect Your Uggs: While optional, placing your Uggs in a mesh laundry bag provides extra protection during the wash cycle.
  • Standard Machine, Gentle Cycle: No need for specialized equipment – your regular washing machine will do.
  • Safeguard Color & Sheepskin: Use a small amount of odorless and colorless detergent to protect both the light-colored sheepskin lining and the outer material of your Uggs.
  • Delicates Cycle & Cold Water: This is crucial to prevent damage. Set the machine to a delicate cycle with cold water for a gentle clean.
  • Air Dry Completely: Patience is key! Allow your Uggs to air dry completely at room temperature for 24-48 hours before wearing them again.

Handwashing for Minor Stains:

Prefer a hands-on approach? You can also handwash your Uggs with a damp cloth and a specialized Ugg cleaner for a gentle refresh.

Removing Water Stains:

Caught in a downpour? Don't fret! Here's how to tackle water stains effectively:

  • Overnight Stain Absorption: Gently rub plain white chalk onto the affected areas and leave it overnight. This helps absorb excess moisture.
  • Buff & Remove Chalk Residue: The next day, use a suede brush or toothbrush to lightly buff away the chalk. Repeat this process with slightly firmer pressure on the water-stained areas to remove any remaining chalk residue.

Drying Tips for Optimal Results:

  • Shaking & Wringing (Before Cleaning): If your Uggs are wet from rain, remove excess water by shaking them out vigorously or gently wringing them a few times.
  • Gentle Spin (Last Resort): For very wet sheepskin, consider a short, gentle spin cycle on your washing machine as a last resort.
  • Air Drying & Stuffing (After Cleaning): Air drying at room temperature is the preferred method. Stuff the interior with plain paper towels or a rolled-up towel to aid drying. Hanging them upside down can also speed up the process.
  • Patience is Key: Avoid rushing the drying process, as this can damage the Uggs. Let them dry completely before wearing them again.

Remember: Patience is your best friend when cleaning and drying Ugg boots. By following these steps and prioritizing gentle care, you can keep your Uggs looking and feeling their best for years to come.
