|Before & After|
If you own a pair of Hunter wellies you are well aware of the fact they develop a white residue over time. According to Hunter, it's a wax that "blooms" to the surface when exposed to certain elements. I hadn't worn mine for over a year and needed to break them out when all of the snow first hit the Northeast. They looked awful! Here are the steps to take to clean your boots so they look like new.
Hunter Boot Buffer Spray (available at Shoes.com or Zappos) or McNett UV Tech
Paper Towels or Cloth
Step 1: Rinse your boots off with lukewarm water to get rid of any debris. Let them completely air dry.
Step 2: Once the boots are dry, wipe your boots down with Goo Gone to remove the white film. I just squirted the cleaner directly on the boots and then wiped with paper towels.
It's going to be messy today in the city with all the snow (mystery puddles), these boots will be essential.
