Hound Wellington Boot Care
To make sure your boots stay in good condition, it is important to care for them. The best way to do this is to clean them with just water and let them dry naturally. Sometimes, due to the natural rubber used in our boots, you may see a white ‘bloom’. This is perfectly natural and will in no way compromise the performance or durability of the boots.
- Brush off any removable dirt from the wellies.
- Using a wet cloth start from the top of the boot and work your way down cleaning any mud from the boot
- Once the boots are clean, rinse the boots off with warm water
- Spray the boots with Hound Boot Spray
- Using a Hound Care Sponge rub the spray in to the boots
- Leave to dry
- Only clean the boots with water
- Let the boots dry naturally
- Store your boots in a dry, well ventilated area
- Store your boots away from direct sunlight and heat sources
- If your boots get wet inside, ensure that they are dried before using them again. You can use crumpled up newspaper pushed inside the boot, which will help the lining dry faster.
- If you will be storing your boots for a long time, clean and dry thoroughly beforehand.
- Dry your boots using direct heat (e.g. using a hair dryer or leaving them in front of a fire)
- Never use chemical cleaners or detergents to clean your boots
- Never store your boots in a damp condition
- never store your boots folded up
Information on Zippers and Straps
Make sure you keep any ‘moving’ parts such as zips and straps clean and free of dirt.
Don’t leave the zip undone when wearing boots as this can cause dirt to accumulate.
Never ‘force’ the zip if it is stuck.
