Long story short, I was at a party and my timberlands got wrecked from alcohol spillages and god knows what else. What should I do?
Here's a picture of them, the other boot is just as bad....

I have already been into a dry cleaners and they said they can't clean them from how bad they are. I just don't wanna give up as they are only a month old...

Warm to hot soapy water (Fairy Liquid works well) and a nail brush.

Gently scrub in a circular motion, once happy that most of the soiling is gone, rinse well and leave to dry naturally.

I’ll be honest, I’ve never tried the fairy liquid approach, but I’ve seen worse. A good suede and nubuck cleaner would also work

Suede & Nubuck shampoo plus one of the nubuck cleaning blocks got red wine out of my new stone coloured boots a couple of years ago.

 

Not sure about the Fairy Liquid approach. Would be interested to know how it turns out if you decide to go down that route.

The easiest way to get alcohol out is to use a solvent leather cleaner. the timberland leather is colour fast enough not to lose any colour.

Also use a crepe brush or sponge when using a cleaner as crepe naturally absorbs.

Hadn't even gone out 'drinking' really, so I cannot blame it on that. We were at a village hall quiz night when one of the other members of the team knocked his glass over. Had I stayed put it would have just hit my clothes, but I instinctively I jumped my chair back and the wine ran off the table onto the floor and splashed up all over my boots.

I once got some terrible stains on my sheepskin coat, it's my own fault really , shouldn't have gone to a welsh pub.

Go soap everytime...Fairy Liquid, have used the handsoaps you can buy for a pound in the dispensers...all work well with warm water and a nail brush, drying natural is the main thing, been doing it this way for about 25 years wherever Ive even working
