UGG Collection Care Instructions
Shearling and Calfhair
Shearling or Calfhair pieces should be cared for delicately; in the same manner you might care for a fine wool sweater or scarf.
Wash any soiled areas as soon as possible. Use a damp sponge to clean the stained area and gently pat dry with a soft towel to absorb the water.
Store your shearling piece in an airy space away from any source of direct sunlight or heat.
Suede Side of Shearling and Cow Suede
Protect the suede side of your UGG products annually with a non-silicone based water and stain repellant that is specifically designed for suede.
Use a soft suede brush or sponge to periodically “brush up” the suede nap if it becomes worn smooth. The same soft suede brush, or a suede sponge, can be used to remove minor spots and stains.
Treat liquid spots (ex. grease, oil, water) by lightly sprinkling a thin layer of corn starch directly onto the spot. The size and intensity of stain should dictate the length of time the corn starch sits on the suede (up to two days for larger spots). Vacuum the corn starch off. Note: corn starch will not leave any marks of its own.
If the footwear gets wet, let it slowly dry, avoiding any direct sunlight or heat source. When dry, gently brush away any spots with a soft suede brush or sponge.
Vegetable Tanned Leather Care Instructions – Vachetta & Wrung
Vegetable-tanning is a natural dying process and is generally done without applying any protective coating to the actual material. Because of this natural process, a single raindrop may stain a pair of vegetable-tanned leather boots or shoes. However, with time the leather should develop a handsome broken-in look.
If you wish to gain a cleaner, more uniform look readily available cleaners and conditioners will help you maintain this. Common cleaning methods include the use of saddle soap, glycerin-based soap, or a simple unscented glycerin soap bar. These are gentle cleansers that will impart moisture to the leather, while leaving a protective coating.
You may also opt for commercial leather cleaners found at leather shops or at upholstery stores. When choosing a commercial grade cleaner, make sure it is formulated to both clean and moisturize leather and contains no drying agents like acetone or alcohol.
Once you have allowed your vegetable-tanned leather to dry slowly, away from direct sunlight or heat, you may apply a commercial protectant to keep it waterproof and stain resistant. These protectants seal the leather while still enabling it to breathe, as leather that cannot absorb moisture will dry and become brittle. Your vegetable-tanned leather will become darker with time and we advise you to let this process occur naturally for a beautiful aged look.
