Sole Knowledge: Hunter Care

If you own a pair of Hunter wellies, you maybe have already experienced a funny phenomenon with your boots. Have you started seeing this white film buildup? Don't worry; it's not tartar or plaque...and it's not a defect either. Your Hunters are doing what it's supposed to do; protecting itself from drying out and cracking. This white waxy buildup is a natural occurrence and does not affect the performance of your boots. However, if you do not like the look of it, you can take a few measures to make your boots look shiny new.

1. Soap & Water.
The simplest way to clean your boots is using cold, soapy water, and a little elbow grease. After each wear, wipe off excess dirt with a cloth, clean with soapy water, wipe, and let them sit to air dry.

2. Hunter Care Products
If you're like me, you never clean your boots off when they immediately get dirty. If you need something quicker than soap and water, try using Hunter's care products. Sole Food carries the boot spray, which works to clean off buildup, condition the rubber and bring back the shine. For quick touchups, the boot sponge works wonders.

using the boot spray, bring the boot back to its original state. Oooo, shiny.

In this video, Brett shows us just how easy it is to clean those boots using the boot spray and sponge.
