Ugg boots are Australian shoes that are made out of high-quality sheepskin. Most boots are treated with a sealant that will help protect them from stains. However, if you've spilt grease on your Uggs, it will most likely leave a stain if not treated properly.
Remove the stain with an easy-to-make vinegar solution and talcum powder. Clean your Ugg boots as soon as possible to prevent the grease from sinking further into the boots and becoming permanent.

Sprinkle talcum powder over the grease stain and let it sit on the Uggs overnight. The powder will absorb most of the grease from the boots.
Wipe the talcum powder off the boots with a suede brush. Brush the boots in one direction to restore the fabric's nap and to remove the excess powder and any dried dirt or grime.
Mix 1 cup of water with 1 cup of white vinegar if the stain is still visible.
Dampen a sponge with the mixture and gently blot the grease stain. Do not soak the sponge. Do not rub the stain, as it may spread the grease mark. Re-wet the sponge as necessary.

Dampen another clean sponge with clear water and rub it over the grease stain to rinse out the vinegar solution. Rinse and re-wet the sponge as needed.
Stuff the Uggs with clean white paper towels to help them retain their shape as they dry. Do not place them in the sun or over a heat source, as it can cause the boots to shrink.
