|Muck on the outside|
Grit and twigs on the inside
How they get in, I'll never understand. My tall, working-in-the-yard-and-mud boots get bits of twigs, grass, dirt, and debris into them. The lining is almost like flannel, so all those little pieces tend to stay. I've taken out the foot liners and washed them, but there's still lots of stuff that migrates underneath and clings to the inside walls of the boot. Ick! The vacuum cleaner was no help.
|Best boot brush around|
Today, as I grabbed the long-handled dish brush that lives outside for scrubbing buckets and boots, a high-light marker skimmed over Things I get to do today--use this long-handled brush to "sweep" out the deep recesses of the boots before you settle down at the rain barrel spigot to scrub off the mud. What a good idea!
|Free of debris--Happy feet |
You bet your big toe, bare feet know the difference!
I took out the insoles and bushed them clean. The brush could reach all the way to the toe, and believe me, for a size 12 boot that is a long way to reach. In a very short time, the foot area was smooth and free of debris. The brush worked equally well to sweep out the walls of the tall boots. A small annoyance solved. Happy bare feet.
