Leather surfaces are naturally absorbent and prone to quickly allowing stains to form. When stains appear on your stylish Frye leather boots, it's vital to the condition and longevity of the leather that you remove the stain quickly and properly. By treating the surface of your leather boots with the right cleansers and methods, you can remove stains while maintaining the condition and appearance of your Frye boots.
Treat oil or grease stains on your Frye boots first by covering them with baking soda. "Good Housekeeping" advises. Allow the baking soda to absorb the oil and grease for 20 minutes then brush it off the stains and into the trash.
Apply a pea-sized amount of white toothpaste to a damp, soft toothbrush. Scrub remaining stains on your Frye boots in gentle, circular motions. Rinse off the toothbrush and tap it on the sink to remove excess moisture. Scrub the leather again to remove the toothpaste and stains.
Dampen a clean cloth and wipe off the exterior of the boots to remove any residual stain removing substance. Dry the boots with another clean cloth.
Pour 1 tbsp. of white vinegar and 2 tbsp. of raw linseed oil into a bowl to make a cleaning and conditioning solution for your Frye boots, the Mrs. Clean USA website suggests. Dampen a cloth with a quarter-sized amount of the vinegar-linseed oil solution. Buff the leather to clean and moisturize it, adding more solution as needed. Allow the vinegar and linseed oil solution to be absorbed into the leather overnight.
Spray your Frye boots with a leather protector to prevent future stains from being easily absorbed.
