  • If your boots are wet and covered in mud or dirt, make sure you clean them as thoroughly as you can before drying; drying mud onto your boots can permanently stain them.
  • Avoid direct heat like that of a blow dryer. Use a table fan or industrial fan directly on the boot. Place a towel under the boot to dry up excess water.
  • When drying your work boots, remove the soles and let them dry separately. Try placing soles out in the sun or into the dryer.
  • Stuff your shoes with newspaper – which will not only absorb moisture, but also do away with unwanted smells. Changing the newspaper every few hours can speed up the drying process.
  • Place your boot into a bag or container of dry rice, which sucks up moisture quickly.
  • If all else fails, just wrap a clean towel inside the shoe and around the outside. This should dry it up within a few hours.
