Getting Dirt Stains Out of Gray Leather Boots

Leather is strong and lasts a long time, but it is not impervious to dirt stains. While gray leather boots add versatility to your wardrobe, when dirt gets into the pores of the leather, you need to give them a deep cleaning to get dirt stains out and get the boots back in action. Clean dirt stains from your gray leather boots with the right products to avoid damaging or drying out the leather.

Step 1

Wipe the boots with a soft, damp cloth to remove any surface dirt and debris. Dry them with another clean cloth to remove the moisture.

Step 2

Moisten a clean cloth with water so it’s slightly damp. Rub the damp cloth into a container of saddle soap to create a lather on the rag.

Step 3

Rub the saddle soap over the dirt stains on the leather using a circular motion.

Step 4

Use a clean, damp cloth to remove the excess saddle soap from the boots and let them air-dry completely until no more moisture is visible or felt on the boots.

Step 5

Rub a baby wipe over the leather to remove any remaining dirt stains. Buff with a dry cloth.
