    Default How do you dry your wading boots?

    Morning all

    how are you drying your wading boots. I unfortunately don't have the luxury of being able to leave my boots outside. I have a doggo with a penchant for chewing everything but her food. So i have resorted to using big sachets of silica that came in packaging of some work items I bought. It works wonders and dries my boots alot quicker that expected. so now my boots can get dry overninght in the dark of all places.

    Depending on the time I come home, I will hang on the washing line or put on steps of the ladder in the garage

    Stuff wet boots full of newspaper, leave overnight, it wicks water out of the boots, remove newspaper, hang on washing line for about a day, or I "plant" the boots in the burglar bars in my study where they get sun and a breeze.

    Ive used the newspaper method and air dry method but have noticed the silica cuts the dry time significantly.

    Any where there is a good draft of air will be good to hang/place the boots
