And if you’re wondering, yes — they’re Canadian winter approved.

“A must-have for Canadian winters. If you have leather or suede boots that collect salt stains all winter long, Boot Rescue is a huge help in cleaning and moisturizing the leather,” reads one review. “The quality of the product is without question. I have a couple pairs of Blundstones and I'm constantly using these wipes on them in the winter.”

“Why didn’t I discover these sooner? Toronto winters are brutal on footwear with the excessive amount of salt thrown down and the lack of shovelling, however after finding these, my footwear has been saved. I carry them in my purse, so I can clean them when I arrive at work/home/etc.,” echoes another. “These are definitely a life saver for my winter footwear.”

Available in a single box or wrapped individually, the Boot Rescue wipes are a Canadian winter essential. Shop them below.
