My Laundry Question

Cleaning Sheepskin Uggs

Share a Little Background Info

While I was at the supermarket, a customer decided the SMELL bleach and accidently spilled the bleach, which then splattered onto my black ugg boots. The boots are fairly new and I would hate to have to get rid of them. Although the boots have splattered stains, the stains are a very dark red on them. Could I have the boots dyed without ruining them?

Lessons Learned

  • I've never dyed anything in the past and I am afraid to do same.

Mary Marlowe Leverette, About.com Laundry & Laundry Rooms, says:

How terrible! You are very lucky that the chlorine bleach did not eat all the way through the sheepskin. The boots can be dyed black to cover the stains. However, you must take them to a professional shoe shop or dry cleaner who specializes in leather to have the leather dyed. Do not try to do it at home. Hope you find a good one.

Good luck!
