How Do You Remove Salt Stains From Leather Shoes?
Salt seems to attach to leather no matter where you are. Salt that is laid upon the streets to fight ice can get on your shoes or boots and leave salt marks. Sweating heavily within your leather shoes, boots or jacket can leave nasty salt rings. It is important to remove the salt as quickly as possible. The salt will dry out leather and cause it to crack. Once the leather cracks, all the elements can get into the leather and destroy it. Step 1 Mix 1 tbsp. white vinegar with 1 cup cold water. Step 2 Dip a clean, soft rag into the mixture. Ring out most of the excess moisture. Step 3 Wipe the salt stains off of the leather. Step 4 Repeat as needed until the salt stains disappear. Step 5 Dry the leather. Let the shoes sit until fully dried.
