Condition and Waterproof

Apply a coat of MooBuzz® All-Natural Leather Protection before you step out into the snow. It will protect your boots or shoes from water and salt.

If you forgot to apply MooBuzz® Leather Protection, wipe off water and salt as soon as you can.

Don’t let your boots or shoes sit covered in melting snow. Remove excess surface moisture as soon as you can to prevent the salt from penetrating the leather. Letting salt stay on your boots or shoes may lead to permanent discoloration and scarring.

Neutralize Salt Stains

Clean the salt off as soon as you notice the telltale white halo. It’s pretty simple.

  • First, lightly wet down the outside of your footwear from top to bottom with clear water. Don't dunk them into the sink. Just bring water up to the shoe or boot using a brush or cloth
  • Then use a mild solution of white vinegar and water (1 generous TBSP vinegar for every cup of water) and a natural bristle brush to gently scrub the salty areas of your boots or shoes.
  • Rinse thoroughly with clear water (again bringing water up to the shoe or boot), blot with a clean towel, and allow to dry completely. Then apply MooBuzz® Leather Protection!
