Wading boots are stinkin the place up
 
Howdy all,

You could get new boots, put them in a plastic storage box or bag to keep the stench inside or try spraying them with isopropyl alcohol to kill the bacteria. Then get use baking soda to get rid of the smell. Place them in a bag or a storage box and add one of those Arm & Hammer refrigerator boxes. And by all means get them wet again!:p

Dr. Scholl's makes some stuff that takes the stink out of my shoes. It is a powder in a funny shaped bottle so you can get it way up to the toes. Seems to work for me.

I was kinda wondering the same thing as Fred when I read your post. I've been using many different wading boots over a good span of time and haven't had a stinky pair :confused:

You know, come to think of it, none of my wading boots have never had an odor either. Even when walking through fields containing piles upon piles of bovine and equine dung, it rinses right off once my feet get wet. :confused:
