How to Clean Salt Stains Off Your Boots! Easy Shoe & Footwear Cleaning Ideas

Is the sodium content on your shoes just a little too high? Stick around and I’ll give you the salt free solution.

Hello salt bunnies! I’m Melissa Maker from Clean My Space and I’ve got a question here today from Terry. Dear Melissa, how do I clean the salt stains off my shoes? It’s really frustrating.

Terry, I hear ya. I go through the same thing, I live in Ontario and we get pummeled with snow all the time. And my beautiful shoes are often coated in disgusting salt stains.

I feel your pain Terry. This is a really easy problem to solve. But a lot of people don’t know how to do it and they end up leaving the salt on their shoes and that ruins the leather.

I’ll show you what you need to solve the problem, I’ll show you how to solve it and then we’ll wrap it up.

First thing that you need is a really dirty boot. The next thing you’ll need is a clean microfiber cloth.


The best damn cloth you can possibly own. So, you need one of those.

And the third thing you need is vinegar. Same stuff you’d use on your fish and chips.

So what I’m going to do is put a little bit of vinegar on this microfiber cloth and clean that disgusting boot. First things first, I need about a tablespoon. Easy there! I’ve got the boot, I’ve got the cloth, let’s get started.

Check that out bad boys, it’s pretty good. *sniff* Smells pretty bad! Vinegar will not damage

the leather, and it will actually lift that salt off so your shoe will be nicely conditioned and also salt free. And this is something you can do fairly regularly, it won’t ruin the leather.

Just remember to follow the manufacturer’s directions on how to regularly condition your shoe cause you should do that as well. But this is just specifically for salt stains on leather shoes.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this tip. Thank you so much Terry for your great question! I’m sure many of us Canadians or cold weather dwell- I’m sure many of- I’m sure many of us Canadians and other cold weath-er. Alright, that’s not happening.
