Remove Salt Stains on Leather
Protect against salt stains on suede or leather:
If you already have salt stains on boots then some damage has already been done to the leather. Ideally, you want to treat your shoes or boots to prevent damage. I get told by people all the time when I'm demonstrating the product(URAD) that: "My boots are brand new - they don't need treating." On the contrary, to prevent salt stains on boots then treat them before you go walking outside. URAD will help protect your leather boots or shoes from salt and water.
Apply a small amount per the instructions when you get your new boots or shoes to ensure protection. If you are wearing your boots outside a lot in very bad weather then treat them every couple of weeks.
Remove salt stains from suede or leather:
If you have already have salt stains on boots or shoes that you wish to remove - use a bit of vinegar in water - soak a cloth in the mixture then wring it so that it is damp. Place this damp cloth over your salt stained boots for about 20 minutes to draw out the salt.
You may have to repeat this 2-3 times if the salt is very bad. This will work for leather or suede. Once you have removed the majority of the salt apply URAD (LeatherMate). The URAD will continue to draw the salt our and protect your shoes and boots from future damage of salt. The best thing to do is preventative.
Just using URAD will also help with salt stains on leather. I have found that sometimes where there is a bit of salt showing and I use the URAD it starts to draw the salt out of leather and an hour later it looks worse!! This is just the URAD removing the salt stains from the leather. Just apply it again or use the water-vinegar mixture.
This technique(water-vinegar) can be used for salt stains on leather shoes, tack or any leather or suede. Don't use the URAD on the suede. If you need to treat suede or nubuck use Tenderly.
