For wet shoes or boots simply place the Winter Sports Moisture Absorbers inside pushing them all the way to the toes of the footwear. Then give them a light shake to evenly distribute the silica beads (back towards the heal) and leave to work their magic. If footwear is not soaking wet then they can dry in as little as 4-6 hours!
If your footwear has taken the brunt of the elements and is extremely wet use the following technique for effective drying.
Remove insoles and soak up excess moisture with newspaper, towel or a sponge before inserting fully regenerated Winter Sports Moisture Absorbers and leaving overnight.
Not just great for footwear, the adjustable leash allows you to hang your Winter Sports Moisture Absorbers in damp salopettes and jackets to dry cuffs and even great for use with water sports equipment to speed up the drying of wetsuits & drysuits.
Boot Bananas Winter Sports Moisture Absorbers can easily be part regenerated by drying them in the sunshine, on a radiator, or in the oven for 1 – 2 hours no higher than 110ºC (230ºF). Once dry and cool, place back in the pack and reseal to ensure they are ready for action when you need them next. Use the oven method to fully regenerate and for optimum performance regenerate regularly.
Discolouration will occur over time demonstrating how much moisture your bananas are soaking up. This will not effect the drying performance.
If used with trail running shoes there is a risk that your bananas themselves will get muddy. If this happens brush off any excess mud then wipe with a damp cloth, but do not submerge!
If submerged the silica beads will break and the Winter Sports Moisture Absorbers will no longer function effectively.
