How to look after your Wellington Boots

In order to keep your Wellington Boots beautiful for as long as possible, it is best to follow a few simple steps when cleaning them.

Cleaning the outside of your Wellington Boots:

Soak a sponge in lukewarm soapy water (remember to use a gentle soap) and clean your Wellington Boots in circular movements until all the dirt has come off. Rinse with clear water and if you live in a hard water area it is advisable to dry the Wellington Boots with a soft cloth. Otherwise you can just leave them to dry naturally.

If you have any special protection products, now is the time to put them on. If you donít have any, you can use glycerine to prevent your Wellington Boots from drying out.

Your Wellington Boots are now ready to be stored until the next time you want to use them. If you want to tidy them away properly, why not consider a Wellington Boot Bag? They are cool and fashionable and a fun way to store your Wellington Boots. Have a look at offers for Wellington Boot Bags.

Cleaning the inside of your Wellington Boots:

If your Wellington Boots got mucky and maybe smelly inside, itís best to wet the inside with some lukewarm soapy water. Use a soft brush (no wire brush) and gently brush the inside. Rinse well and repeat if necessary. After the final rinse, shake off any excess water and then stuff your Wellington Boots with crunched up newspaper and leave over night. If they are still a bit wet the next morning you can just leave them to dry without any newspaper in.

Things your Wellington Boots donít like:

  • Harsh cleaning agents
  • Sharp edges
  • Hard brushes
  • Hot water
  • Storage near the radiator
  • Drying the inside with a hairdryer
  • Drying in direct sun light

When following these tips, your Wellington Boots have the best conditions to last a long time. However, there is no need to worry too much about it. We reckon the average farmer doesnít gently brush their Wellington Boots and they still last forever. After all, they are tough as old boots.
