Has winter’s festive mix of sludgy melted snow and street salt left white stains all over your beloved leather boots? Good news: there’s a super simple solution (literally!).
Dip a cloth (or paper towel, or cotton ball) into a mixture of one part white vinegar, one part warm water and gently rub against the stains—they should come right off—and then wipe dry. The vinegar will break down the salt deposits without damaging suede or leather (although you may want to test a small, non-visible spot first for dye discoloration, etc.).
