My son who is 7 y/o was running in the parking garage until he fell and slid in a puddle of nasty oil that had leaked from a car. This completely destroyed his “Chris Brown” boots as he call them. Once I realized that I could blog about keeping your boots clean I had already cleaned off most of the oil from the boots. The pic up above shows the remaining oil that was left once I decided to take a before picture of the boots. I used warm water on a towel combined with the Dawn Dish detergent. I scrubbed until I no longer saw the oil. I allowed the boots to dry completely and they were back like new.
