Ugg Australia Ugg Care Kit 510
Advantages: A fantastic kit with everything you need to keep your UGGs looking as good as possible!
Disadvantages: A little pricey and the soft suede brush is not soft enough!
COST OF THE KIT AND ITS CONTENTS
The kit cost £28.00 and the lady got it from behind the counter it was not on display to buy. Inside the kit was a 118ml sheepskin freshener, 118ml sheepskin cleaner and a 118ml sheepskin protector as well as a soft suede brush and soft bristle brush on the other side. These items come in a smart brown box so it is a lovely present to give to somebody if you know they have UGGs.
WHERE THE KIT CAN BE PURCHASED
The kit can be bought in some highstreet shoe shops like Schuh or Treds and many online retailers stock it such as, Amazon. I would be wary about purchasing the kit on eBay because I have heard that there are fakes of these kits being made which obviously would not be a great idea in case they wrecked your UGGs. So my advice is to purchase the kit from a reputable retailer.
This item is very simply a spray that you spray inside the boots to freshen them up. Luckily I do not have sweaty or smelly feet. However, I can imagine that if somebody wears UGGs when the weather is not freezing cold then they could perhaps sweat slightly so this of course is a great product to reduce any unwanted smells. The directions for the spray bottle state to spray it inside of the shoe after every wear however, I think this is a little excessive and is just a way for you to use up the product extremely quickly. In the winter period when I was regularly wearing them I sprayed the inside of them about once per week.
This item is the one which takes the time. Firstly the entire boot needs to be dampened with cold water. I tried to make sure no water actually went inside of the boot just simply on the outside surface. Then dilute the sheepskin cleaner with half water and half cleaner. Not a lot of the cleaner is required. Then from reading the instructions I simply dipped the soft bristled brush into the diluted cleaner solution and started very gently scrubbing the surface of the boots. At this point I was very nervous in case anything could have gone wrong. In hindsight I should have tested a patch before doing the entire boot but luckily it all went to plan. Then after gently scrubbing the boots I rinsed them with again with cold water minding not to get any water inside the boots. The instructions then state to put rolled up paper inside the boots to keep their shape. However, my UGGs are quite sturdy UGGs so it did not do this. However, less sturdy UGGs would probably require this step in the cleaning process. Then allow the boots to dry and then get the suede end of the brush and gentle buff the surface of the boots in one direction. This is to get the tracking of the suede back to how they were. However, I found that the suede brush was not very good unfortunately. Whenever, I gently rubbed with it I kept seeing marks occur that did not look like the regular tracking of the boots so I kept stopping. Eventually I did not carry on with the suede brush but the boots still look lovely and clean.
This is a spray that needs shaking and simply needs spraying a few centre metres away from the boots preferably outdoors onto the outer surface of the boots. It simply creates a shield to protect the boots from damage like snow and heavy rain. I wish I had purchased this kit straight when I bought my first pair of UGGs just so I could use this sheepskin protector from day one. However, I have never had bad marks on my UGG boots to this day. I spray the protector onto the boots after I have cleaned the boots to make sure they have that shield on again.
This is a superb kit to keep your UGGs looking and smelling fresh and clean again. The brush that comes in the kit could be a little bit softer for the suede side but apart from that I absolutely love the kit and am so pleased I paid that extra £28.00. I have also used the kit on suede boots that are not UGGs and it worked like a gem again.
Summary: A kit to protect, clean and freshen your UGGs
