Ways to winterize your shoes

December 11, 1991|By Knight-Ridder Newspapers

This is winter and time for the muck to hit the streets. By muck, we mean slush and salt and other things that make being well-groomed from head to toe a difficult undertaking. Here is some advice from kiwi brands:

* Saddle soap cleans and softens damaged leather and can help remove salt residue. Mink oil softens weather-damaged shoes, but does not clean it.

* Never dry shoes with heat. Let them dry slowly.

* Remove salt stains immediately. The longer they linger, the more difficult they are to remove.
