She uploaded some striking before and after pictures of her boots, and they now look like they could be straight off a shop shelf.
Taking to the Facebook group Hinch Army Cleaning Tips, she said: “From seeing the posts about cleaning UGG boots, I thought I would attempt to bring mine back to life. I am so happy with the result!
“They’re super soft again and have held the shape like they’re new again!”
Firstly she stuffed each boot with newspaper to reshape them, and then sprayed white vinegar spray over the whole boot suede.

Next, she used a brush to go over the suede gently in strokes and light circles.
She then got a damp cloth, and blotted the suede to remove any excess dirt and vinegar.

Phoebe then left her Ugg boots to dry under the radiator, and then brushed them once again when they were no longer damp.
Her post has cleaning impressed other Ugg owners, and has racked up over 1,500 likes.
Phoebe added: “Thank you for all the comments, they’re definitely not photoshopped.
“They did smell like vinegar when they were wet but now they have dried, I can just about smell a hint of vinegar if I really put my nose on them, but I think even that will fade even more.
“Glad I can help others.”

One person raved: “I’m gonna try this myself.”
Another added: “Thank you so so much for this Iv been asking if anyone knows of anyone cleaning them professionally.”
A third commented: “I put mine in the washing machine. Then put them on the radiator to dry. Brushed with a nail brush gently then. They’re not as soft as they were but they’re clean and look grand!”
