Here Is How To Clean Your Rubber Boots

I love my rubber boots. I wear them all the time when it’s raining and it’s very muddy outside, however, this means that I have to clean them after every use – after all, I don’t want dried mud and impurities on them.

Let me show you how I clean my rubber boots so you can follow the steps and clean yours as well.

Here Is How To Clean Your Rubber Boots

First, you need to take them to your bathroom and rinse them with cold water so you remove any wet debris and the mud.

I also like to get a brush and scrub the dried mud with it so I can loosen it up and easily rinse it with the water. You can also use an old toothbrush to cover those hard-to-reach places like the bottom of the boots.

If rinsing and scrubbing them isn’t enough, I recommend you mix baking soda with water and a few drops of liquid soap then dip a cloth in the mixture and start scrubbing the boots with it. The baking soda will loosen up the impurities.

When you are done, rinse them again and then wipe them with a cloth so you can dry the boots.

What About The Inside?

Once you have cleaned the outside, it’s time to clean the inside of your rubber boots. I don’t do this after every use because it’s not necessary so keep that in mind.

I just mix a teaspoon of laundry detergent with two cups of water. I dip a cloth in the mixture and wipe the interior of the boots.

Next, I rinse and remove the soapy residue with a damp clean cloth.

From time to time, I recommend you also spray the inside with distilled white vinegar so you can prevent bacteria from breeding plus take care of any bad smells.
