Help! Salt Stains on Suede Boots

So many options on Amazon, but I don't know which one to get.

I have salt stains on my gray suede boots. The do-it-yourself with vinegar thing is kind of scary to me, but maybe it's the way to go?

Any advice?

TIA!

Did you try brushing them with a suede brush first?

No, I haven't. I only have a regular shoe brush, and that didn't do much.

I will get a suede brush!

Thanks.

Suede with salt stains must be a problem. I wore only smooth leather boots in winter back north and they were difficult enough. Having DH take care of them was my solution.
