How to Dry Winter ShoesPosted by Guarantee Green Team on January 8th, 2013
Nothing is worse than wet, winter boots but it’s something we all have to deal with in the winter time. Whether your boots got soaked in a downpour, or by traipsing through the snow, drying winter shoes is easy and important.
Drying the outside of your winter boots is relatively easy. Just place them near a heating vent, and the warm flow of air will help them to dry.
It’s the inside of boots that makes wetness problematic. If the inside of the shoes stay wet, it could cause stinky mildew and weaken the structure of the shoe. Start by removing any inner lining of the shoe, if it’s removable, and allow it to dry.
Next, sprinkle small amounts of baking soda inside the shoe to prevent the shoe from getting smelly.
Fill the shoe with wadded up newspaper. The newspaper soaks up excess moisture and helps the shoe dry from the inside. Replace the newspaper every few hours, depending on how wet the shoes are they should dry quickly.
Drying winter shoes thoroughly will help keep them in good condition all winter long.
