Who doesn’t love to own a lovely Ugg boot pair, as a part of their footwear collection? Yes, comfortable and stylish, these boots are known to offer great warmth in winters and a cooling effect in summer. Moreover with a wide range of varieties available in different styles, these are indeed the preferred choice of fashion icons across the world. However, these lovely pair of sheepskin boots comes with their share of problems. They are not waterproof! Yes, though some bogus vendors or manufacturers would claim that they are waterproof, original Australian Uggs are not. They are weather proof but not waterproof. The first thing you should do to ensure that you prevent them from getting damaged due to moisture from heavy rain water or snow.



Sprays: Users have benefited greatly from using leather proof sprays to handle this problem. You can get them from any of the shoe retailers, but make sure that you get branded varieties to make the best of these sprays. Apply a fresh coat of spray after you wash or clean your Uggs.



Hand wash: It is recommended that you should occasionally wash your Uggs and slippers to keep them looking good for a long time and to maintain their comfort quotient. Use mild detergent mixed with warm water for washing, never use hot water, it would damage the texture. Also, you should dry them appropriately after washing (read drying tips below). Note: the boots may shrink a little after washing, as they are genuine sheepskin boots, however, when you wear them, they would get back to their normal shape and size to fit your feet contour.



Drying: Well, this is an important part of the entire cleaning process of Australian Uggs. After washing your boots thoroughly, it is recommended that you use a dry towel to absorb the excess water. Leave them in an open, shady place for drying. Do not use heat to dry them.



Brushing: While brushing your boot is necessary, there are definite ways of doing it. Always brush gently with a soft brush or clean cloth (as you think best) in the same direction to do away with dust particles. Never brush in the opposite direction; it would end in disastrous results.



Storing: Always store any pair of Australian Ugg Boots in a clean dry place, to prevent onslaught of moisture. Make sure to leave the openings unobstructed so that air is allowed to flow to preserve its softness.



Keep these tips in mind while taking care of your Ugg Boots and you can never go wrong with them. Preserve your Australian Uggs for many years to come.
