Step 1: Excess Dirt
To remove excess dirt from your boot, clean with a damp cloth or, if the dirt is really stubborn, use a soft brush.
Step 2: Appropriate Cleaning Products
If your boots are very dirty then maybe consider a safe appropriate cleaner made especially for Ariat leather boots such as Ariat's own brand cleaner, so that your boots are clean and protected. Don't use household cleaners, e.g. Alcohol as this will damage your boot.
Step 3: Saturated Boots
If your boots are soaked through, then the best thing to do is remove your insole, insert some paper towel and leave to dry naturally. Do not leave your boots in the sun or use a heat source to dry them as this can stain/ damage the leather.
Step 4: Check and Clean your Zippers
Use a soft brush to clean your zippers to remove any sand, dust or gravel that could of gotten between the teeth. Zipping them up with small grains can result in damaged zips so make sure that you clean your zippers before and after use.
Step 5: Conditioning
To condition your boots, use a cloth and a small amount of conditioner and rub in small circles all over the boots, starting from the bottom and working upwards. We recommend *product* for soft and protected boots.
Step 6: Polish
Use a cloth and a little bit of polish moving in circular motions, again working your way from the bottom of the boot to the top. Leave to dry until you think the polish has penetrated the leather.
Step 7: Buff!
Finally, grab a soft brush and buff your boots until they shine, make them look brand new once more! To store your boot use a boot jack to make sure your boot keeps it shape and doesn't crease.
