Our Boot Care Cloths are made from a durable 100% cotton fabric that has a napped exterior side for applying care products and polishing. On the other side is a non-napped fabric that should be used for cleaning.

LintI'd like to add my disappointment to the other comments.
I bought the care package recommended by for my iron rangers and was happy to have special red wing cloths. It's a special moment to take care of your boots you know so if you can use a redwing cloth it adds pleasure...
What a disappointment! I confirm the lint they leave. I cannot understand that Red Wing sell those. Have you guys tried them at all? I mean it's pretty obvious... They feel good to touch but they leave an ungly lint on the boots. I now have oiled boots that don't look clean at all. I will probably wait until it dries and might wash them again, but I'm worried about using tooich conditioner as it darken the boots a little bit...
Red wings, you have amazing products, I'm so happy with my boots. Please change or even remove this cloth from the care products.

Do not buy or useI bought these cloths to condition my boots. Even when washed before use, they leave white lint all over the boots. I have tried to use the 'rough' side of them to take off the lint, but it does not work. My boots now have the white lint all over them... do not buy or use.

leaves lint behindI maintained my Iron Rangers through winter with Redwing's leather conditioner, and thought I'd switch to the boot oil now that the weather has gotten a bit nicer, since there's less need for wax this time of year. My first application of the oil was with one of these cloths. That left lint. I tried letting the oil soak in over night, and then buffing with the cloth. That left lint too.
One of the other reviewers suggested to wash the cloths first. I haven't tried that. If that is the recommended way to use them, then it would be good if some instructions were included.
Note: the lint did wash off with saddle soap, so no serious harm done, just a bit disappointed that this product isn't living up to the usual Red Wing standard.

Excellent Care ClothThere are many comments about these leaving lint behind. I washed them previous to using and there was no lint at all!

High hopes, lower realityThese cloths unfortunately leave lint behind. You can get the lint off with some work and a brush, it’s just a shame they leave lint in the first place. Probably better off using microfiber or an old tshirt.

Leaves lint behindUsed a care cloth to clean my boots, but now they're covered in a very fine lint that is, so far, almost impossible to remove.
