Care and maintenance of Timberland waterproof hiking boots
How to clean your boots
Depending on the material used on your boots, Timberland recommends specialized care in cleaning their footwear. Also, the product designers highly suggest to treat stains and remove dirt immediately. Accumulated dirt left for a prolonged period will be harder to remove. The below Timberland-owned items are commonly used in cleaning your boots for hiking:
Suede and nubuck cleaner. Use this water-based product on suede, nubuck, and canvas to remove tough stains. Do not use it on waxed and oiled leathers. You may follow the steps below on how to use it.
It may darken the color of the outer material so try it in a small area first before fully applying on the entire boot.
Remove dirt on its surface using a suede brush.
Put the foam in a clean and dry cloth. Apply it on the entire shoe. Spot cleaning is not recommended as it can cause color variance.
Soak up the dirt using a clean, dry cloth.
A rubber sole brush can help restore the nap.
Footwear dry cleaning kit. This set includes a nylon brush and a cleaner bar which is used to remove dried dirt and stains on nubuck, suede and canvas. See below for instructions.
First, test the kit in a small area.
To remove loose or dried dirt, use the brush.
Get the cleaner bar and gently rub it over the affected area.
Using the brush, remove the residue and raise the nap.
Rubber sole brush. This item features a gum rubber eraser on one side and a nylon bristle brush on the other side (both sides are shaped like a Timberland boot outsole). It is also used to remove stain and dirt on suede, nubuck and canvas.
