Spring Cleaning

Winter boot cleaning and storage

Before you store your dirty winter boots for the summer get them cleaned and prepped with ROYALE®! Preparing them now will mean that when the first snowfall hits, they’ll look and smell just like new.

What You’ll Need:

  • Boots

  • ROYALE® Tiger Towel® paper towel

  • Water

  • Soap

  • Vinegar

  • 2 bathroom tissue cores

  • Essential oils


  1. Half fill a bucket with warm water.

  2. For muddy boots, add a small amount of dish soap. For boots with road salt lines add white vinegar.

  3. Dampen Tiger Towel® in the bucket and wipe down your boots.

  4. Once the boots are clean, empty the bucket and refill with water.

  5. Wipe down the boots with damp Tiger Towel® to remove any residue.

  6. Let dry completely.

  7. Apply essential oils to the middle of 2 bathroom tissue cores.

  8. Insert a bathroom tissue core into each boot.

  9. Re-box boots or place in a clear plastic container for storage.

Being prepared in the spring makes transitioning into winter as painless as possible, your future self will thank you. Even more, removing salt and dirt before they have the chance to bake into your footwear will extend it’s useful life, and, finally, adding essential oils to the interior during storage means that when you need them again your boots will smell like your favourite scent, and not like a long winter of trekking in the snow.
