Salt Stains on Leather

If you get salt stains on your leather shoes or boots in the wintertime, mix one tablespoon of white vinegar in one cup of water. Dip a clean soft rag in the liquid, the wipe the salt stains. Allow to dry and your shoes should be good as new!

WOW! This really does work, I cleaned my mom's salt stains off her leather boots with this vinegar mixture THEN I polished them with the inside of a banana peel. They look great and I then sprayed them with a leather protector!

I used a tooth brush to get the excess banana quish out of the seams, but the boots really did polish up nice! Does anyone have a natural solution for protecting leather verses, using the toxic protector stuff!

This is amazing! It works great, I had a HUGE salt stain going across my boot and I used this recipe and it looks good as new, dries really fast when put under light! Pleased with the outcome! Thanks again, I'm gonna remember this for next time!
