    Boot cleaner method

  1. 1

    Remove any loose dirt from the outer surface of the boots by using a suede brush or other type of shoe brush.

  2. 2

    Squeeze the bottle of Timberland boot cleaner until a small amount of gel shows on the surface of the foam applicator. This product cleans leather, vinyl, canvas, nylon and rubber boot areas.

  3. 3

    Press the sponge on to the stained area of the boot. Work it into the scuffed area until the stain is gone. Wipe off any excess gel with a clean cloth and allow the boot to dry thoroughly.

    Toothpaste method

  1. 1

    Apply a small amount of non-gel (white) toothpaste to the scuffed area with your fingertips or a clean cloth. Rub it into the area.

  2. 2

    Rinse the scuffed area with a cloth dampened with water.

  3. 3

    Allow the boot to dry and your scuff should be gone. Repeat if necessary.
