Hunter – Care Guide

Since 1856, Hunter has enjoyed a long and proud history with rubber and was the first British company to manufacture rubber boots.

However, without proper care, even the finest-quality rubber can become brittle and lose its good looks. Fortunately, Hunter’s long knowledge of rubber and its qualities means that they know all there is to know about ensuring a long and healthy lifespan for your wellington boots.

Caring for your Hunter Boots:

Do –

  • Make sure the lining is completely dry before using them again. If the inside of your boots gets wet, stuffing a few bits of crumpled newspaper in the boots will help to dry them out.
  • Try using an eraser or a bit of toothpaste to repair any scuff marks.
  • Use a Hunter Boot Buffer or a little vegetable or olive oil on a clean, dry cloth to keep your boots looking fresh.

Don’t –

  • Try to speed up the drying of your boots by using heat – rubber doesn’t like it.
  • Expose your boots solvents, oils and animal fats, which can swell the rubber, increasing the risk of slipping.

Cleaning your Hunter Boots:

Do –

  • Wipe clean and leave to dry naturally.
  • Use only cold, soapy water to clean your boots.

Don’t –

  • Use solvents or strong detergents to clean your boots.

Buff & Shine your Hunter Boots:

Do –

  • Make regular use of the Hunter Boot Buffer to restore a pristine finish and shine to your boots.

Don’t –

  • Scrub or try to wash with anything other than warm soapy water

Storing your Hunter Boots:

Do –

  • Make sure your boots are as dry and clean as possible before storing them.
  • Keep your boots in a cool, dry, well-ventilated location. Some of our favourite spots include under-stair cupboards that don’t get too hot or cold.
  • Store your boots in a secure bag, ideally crafted from a breathable and durable material.

Don’t –

  • Store boots while still damp.
  • Keep your boots near heaters, fireplaces or radiators.
  • Store in direct sunlight.
