How To Clean Your Boots

Recommended Posts

They were caked in mud before. I took a wire brush to them and scrub all the mud off and then blew the dust off with a blower (already had it out.) I then sprayed some WD40 on a rag and rubbed them really good. After that I misted them in WD40 and scrubbed the cracks with a toothbrush. And finally, I sprayed some stuff called "Awesome" on the lighter colored parts and rubbed it really good. Took about 30 minutes. Let me know what you think:thumbsup:

Looks really good. I will try the wd40. I like how the metal toe plate only shows up after you do the magic!

I just wash mine down with water and a scrub brush every couple of rides. But then again, its really only dust now... Mud sucks...

those look better for sure.

i have white alpine stars and over time they get dirt that never seems to come off and they start to get yellow. soft scrub with bleach and an older scotch brite makes them look almost new again. it takes the yellow out of them and the dirt right off. i wish i had picures

Cool, I'm going to try the soft scrub. Riding in the woods I get green/brown stains on the toes.

Pressure washer, simple green, a scrub brush and some elbow grease works wonders for me. Also, a traffic cone makes a great boot washing stand :worthy:

Can the Alpinestars "booties" be machine washed...or are they a gentle hand-wash deal only?

Ive washed my tech 8 booties a bunch of times in the machine with no ill effects.

For white boots i've found that clorox soft scrub works great. I powerwash first then use soft scrub and a brush, it brings the white back to looking like new.

A pressure washer and stuff will get it clean definitely, but to get them looking new you have to rub and scrub in some WD40.
