Boot cleaner method

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

  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. 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. 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. Rinse the scuffed area with a cloth dampened with water.

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

  4. Tip

    Use the suede and nubuck cleaner for Timberland boots made from these materials.
