HOW TO CLEAN & CARE FOR YOUR WELLINGTON BOOTS


Following these steps when cleaning your boots will keep them fresh and help preserve the longevity of your wellies for all your upcoming mucky adventure!

  • Person brushing the side of their boots

    STEP ONE

    Prep your wellies to remove excess materials such as mud & debris

    Preferably while your boots are still wet, wipe off excess mud with a cloth. If the muck on your wellies is dry, we would recommend using a soft brush to brush the excess off.

  • Person washing their boots with a hose

    STEP TWO

    Clean your wellies with tepid water

    Remove any remaining mud with a cloth and tepid water. This also helps remove any contaminants you may have inadvertently walked through, such as chemicals or animal waste, which can damage the materials.

  • Boots drying on a rack

    STEP THREE

    Let your wellies dry naturally at room temperature

    Allow your footwear to dry naturally away from artificial heat. While it might be tempting to leave your footwear by a radiator, artificial heat will affect the uppers potentially leading to cracks and crazing.

    Nourish - Feeding your boot uppers will help keep them supple, prolonging their life and minimalizing the risk of cracks and crazing. There are many examples of rubber boot care products on the market including Grangers Rubber Boot Care Spray.

BEST PRACTICE TO PROLONG THE LIFE OF YOUR MUCK® BOOTS

PUTTING ON WELLINGTON BOOTS

Take care pulling your boots on to ensure the boots shaft is correctly extended. Our neoprene upper can be a snug fit and not pulling the boots to their full height, or over stuffing with trouser leg can cause excessive creasing where the ankle articulates.

TAKING OFF WELLINGTON BOOTS

Using a suitable boot jack is the preferred method of removal. There are many examples of boot jacks on the market including our own. Avoid using the opposite foot as a lever on the heel of the boot or a convenient step, stair or rock as this can damage the boot and can cause excessive pressure on the boot heel and sole leading to damage.

CONDITIONING RUBBER WELLIES

As a natural material, it is important your rubber boots are conditioned regularly to ensure they last for years to come. Feeding your boot uppers will help keep them supple, prolonging their life and minimalizing the risk of cracks and crazing. There are many examples of rubber boot care products on the market including our own.

STORING WELLIES

Avoid storing your boots in direct sunlight, near to any artificial heat or in sub-zero temperatures, as this can cause the rubber to become brittle, deteriorate and crack. Preferably store your boots upright to avoid creasing or folding – some crumpled newspaper will help.

LEATHER & FABRIC UPPERS

For leather uppers use a suitable leather care product. Once dry, any woven/fabric upper panels can be gently brushed with a soft brush to remove any remaining mud.

USES

Our boots are great, and a little TLC should see them lasting and performing to the highest standards in the toughest conditions. However, they are conceived as a work/walk inspired product. Particularly our tall boots are not designed for driving or horse riding unless specifically stated. Inappropriate use can shorten their effective lifespan.
