How to Clean Your Used Timberland Boots?

Timberland boots and shoes have been a popular choice for many   consumers since the brand’s debut in 1973. The founder, Nathan Swartz, began his career as an apprentice sewer for shoes and boots in the   Boston area. His big contribution to the shoes and boots industry was   the invention of injection-molding technology, which was able to make boots mostly waterproof. They rose in popularity due to their waterproof   material, and their ability to withstand cold weather. This makes the   boots popular among men and women who work outside, as well as those who live in cold climates. Since then, millions of people have turned to   the brand for their timberland footwear needs. The brand is actually popular across the world with consumers in Italy and across Europe. The boots are incredibly versatile articles of   clothing that also happen to be waterproof, making them a top choice   for men and women for working construction, hiking in rugged terrain, or just looking good.

Like any quality long-lasting footwear, Timberland boots  require regular cleaning; some experts recommend treatment once a week.   There are a number of ways to clean the boots, from using household   materials to purchasing an inexpensive Timberland kit designed   specifically for the purpose. However, because of the leather and other   materials, Timberland boots should never be put in the washing machine   or the dryer. While Timberland branded clothing can be washed in the   dryer if noted on the label, Timberland footwear should always be   cleaned by hand. There is no need for specialty soaps, but care should   be taken when cleaning and the wearer should be sure to follow all   cleaning instructions so as not to damage the leather or suede. Remember   that the shoes are waterproof but not always stain-proof, and keeping   them clean might require some work. Thankfully, all of these items are   readily available for purchase from eBay and other retailers, making   their acquisition as easy as their implementation.

Timberland Footwear Dry Cleaning Kit

Timberland boots are built to be waterproof and to withstand cold   weather. However, these premium shoes and boots can still get dirty.   Clean Timberland boots with care so as not to damage the material.   Timberland offers an official manufacturer’s cleaning kit that can be   purchased when buying the boots. The company designed its Timberland   Footwear Dry Cleaning Kit to make upkeep easy for its rugged footwear.   The kit comes with a nylon brush and cleaner bar, both tools that remove   dirt and grime, as well as erase black smudges and scars that are   particularly visible on the classic yellow boot and its padded single or   double collar. The kit is appropriate for canvas, suede, or nubuck   fabrics that are common to the boots. The first step in cleaning is to   use the brush to remove dirt, dust, and caked-on mud. Once the Timberland Boot is free of such detritus, buff away stains with the cleaner bar.   Finally, apply the brush once again to clear any remaining dust or   residue.

Timberland Renewbuck Suede and Nubuck Cleaner

Tougher, deeper stains on premium Timberland suede and nubuck boots may take additional effort to remove, which is why   Timberland created its Renewbuck Suede and Nubuck Cleaner. Unlike the   Dry Cleaning Kit, Renewbuck is a water-based foam cleaner, ready to   tackle grass, mud, salt, and other messy encounters. As with the dry   cleaning process, prior to applying Renewbuck it is best to remove all   external mud and dirt with a dry brush or crepe bar. Next, spray the   foam cleaner onto a clean, dry cloth, and then apply it gently to the   boot. The Timberland’s Rubber Sole Brush as well as the Suede Brush are   ideal for smoothing the damp surface of the boot. Brush in one direction   to restore the fabric nap. When using a water-based cleaner, always   apply to the entire boot, not just particular spots, as a color   variation may occur. This will leave the entire surface clean.

Method 1: Using Household Items to Clean Timberland Boots

Although the Timberland kits are inexpensive and easy to find, some   wearers prefer the convenience of using household items to keep their   boots clean. The DIY method is also popular for minimalist who do not   want to keep an excess of branded cleaning materials around. A handful   of items are still required, with slight variations depending on whether   the boots are leather or suede. In general, however, one should have a   clean towel,   dish soap, and a toothbrush that is not planned to be used again in its   traditional way. To clean boots or shoes with these items, first,   thoroughly clean the bottom of the boot using the dish soap and toothbrush.   Once the boot bottom and outsole are clean, leave the shoe to dry   thoroughly before moving on to the upper. Gently apply a mixture of dish   soap and water with a soft cloth, introducing a brush when stains are   present. Finally, wipe the material with a dry cloth and allow it to air   dry.

Method 2: Using Household Items to Clean Timberland Boots

A second household method utilizes baby wipes, a pencil eraser, and   a piece of stale bread, in addition to a toothbrush. As with method   one, the first step involves removing dried mud trapped between the   treads. Once each outsole is clean and dry, gently wipe the boots with baby wipes. Rub a crustless slice of stale bread over any remaining stains in the material, using a simple pencil eraser to wipe out scuffs.
