clean Hunter boots DIYIt’s time on the wet, west coast to get prepared for the rainy season. It lasts about 10 months here – ha ha – actually only about 9 1/2! There are a couple of things it’s hard to live without: a gore tex jacket and welly boots.
I was lucky enough to inherit a pair of gorgeous Hunters from a very generous friend who was abusing them wearing them on her farm while collecting eggs from the chicken coop and mucking out the goat barn, *yikes*! These boots are so nice, with rubber around the foot and tweedy fabric on the uppers and totally out of my budget. I set out to give them a good cleaning for Fall because, in these parts, we wear them as fashion boots too. Totally acceptable in my workplace to don wellies with a skirt.

I used good old Armor All and a Tide pen on these babies and I’m thrilled with how they spruced up. I sprayed the Armor All onto an old clean towel then thoroughly rubbed it into all the rubber parts of the boots. The Tide pen got out the worst of the dirt stains from the tweed fabric in no time! About 15 minutes effort and I’m all set to prance around in trendy boots AND stay dry. Win, win.
