The life of your gumboots is greatly affected by proper cleaning after use.
In hot conditions such as underground mining, foot hygiene is especially important, as the combination of warmth and sweat can become a breeding ground for bacteria or germs. The ideal solution is to clean your boots as often as possible.
For best results, clean your boots as described below, and make use of good quality cotton socks to absorb sweat. Ensure that you wear a clean pair each day.
All Wayne gumboots come with a knitted nylon sock liner instead of a brushed nylon liner. This helps prevent the absorption of moisture and makes it easy to clean the inside. By comparison, brushed nylon liners make it more difficult to clean inside the boot, and take longer to dry.
