How to Clean Timberland's Boots

Updated May 03, 2018

Timberland boots are made for hiking and working outside in all kinds of weather. Because of this you can expect your boots to get really dirty. They will need to be cleaned on a regular basis in order to get the most use out of them before having to buy a new pair. There are several ways of going about this because your boots can just be a little dirty, or they could have a stain.

Wet a towel with warm water and wipe down the boots with a side swiping motion. This will remove the dirt and leave your boots looking shiny when they dry.

Clean the bottom of your Timberland boots using warm water and a toothbrush. The toothbrush will allow you to get the dirt out of the tread of the boots. Rinse the bottom of the boots with warm water after you have removed the dirt. Allow to air dry.

Wipe the Timberland boots down from head to toe with baby wipes. You will need to use several to get the entire boot clean. Allow the boots to air dry.

Use a Gonzo Wonder Sponge (see Resources) when your Timberland boots have stains. You use a dry sponge and wipe down the area of your boots that need cleaned. This product costs less than £3 and can keep your boots looking like new.

Take the crust off of a piece of bread and let it sit out and become stale. Rub it over your boots where you have dirt and stains. Watch as the stale bread gets rid of the dirt and stains and brings the boots back to new again.

Get the scuff marks off of your Timberland boots with an eraser. This method really works and is free, assuming you have a pencil with an eraser in the house. Just rub the eraser over the scuff mark a few times and it will magically disappear.


Take the time to clean your boots once per week so that you are not constantly building up the dirt that is on the boot.


You may need to use more than one method to get your boots clean.
