How To Get Salt Off Boots

If you have ever walked around streets and sidewalks during winter when there is snow, chances are there has been salt put on the ground to help melt the ice.  This is great for helping us not slip on ice, but that salt then gets on your boots.  No only does it make your boots look messy, but it is also not something you want to leave on there for a long time.  This article explains an easy way how to get the salt off of boots.

Salt dissolves in water so this is the main ingredient needed to clean the salt off of boots.  If your boots are waterproof you can clean them with water right at a sink.  Turn the water on just a little bit and carefully drizzle it on the bottoms of the boots where they have salt.  Turn the boot around as needed to let the water wash all the parts that have salt.  Try not to get it on the upper parts or cloth parts of the inside of the boot.

Once you have washed the salt off, you can let them air dry or wipe them with a paper towel or a cloth.  After they dry, check to see if all the salt as been removed.  If there is any residue left, do one more treatment with the water or use a damp cloth to wipe off the remaining salt.  You can also use the damp cloth for cleaning the salt off shoes or other footwear that is not waterproof.  This simple procedure will keep your boots looking new and help extend the lifespan of your boots.
