11-23-bootsIf you have enjoyed a wonderful summer hike, your boots, most likely, will need a good cleaning. Get them ready for your next trek:

1. If the boots are only dusty, get a shoe brush to get off the dust.
2. If the boots are muddy and wet, let them dry totally. Then use a soft-bristled brush to get rid of all the dried mud. Don’t forget to scrub the hidden spots and seams. Wipe off boots with water.
3. Air out the inside of the boots and place a couple of used fabric softener sheets inside to deodorize them.
4. If the boots are real leather, finish up by applying a leather conditioner.
