Ugg boots should never be placed in a washing machine or taken to the dry cleaners. Because they are constructed of sheepskin, their nap may be damaged by the detergent and submersion in water, and their shape may be destroyed by the agitation.
Pairs that have begun to show wear can be restored with a sheepskin cleaner and conditioner. Applied by hand with clean water and a sponge, this product is simple to use for caring for Uggs at home. And, to extend the life of the boots and prevent staining, a sheepskin protector can be applied before wearing for the first time.
