Default How do I get rid of the smell?

Hey,

I have been riding 8 weeks on the trot. My Burton Rulers are starting to smell worse than a bag of used jock straps. Anyone out there know how to wash these things (both the inner and outer boot)?

Cheers,
Traveler

1. Baking Soda
2. Go find the Tide fresheners (they are little plastic balls)

I used the Tide fresheners when we had mildew in the house. It helped clear the smell once we got the area fixed..

I don't wash mine or anything like that, but I guess you could soak the liners in water and dry them thoroughly.

I just took my boots out of my snowboard bag, and now the room stinks. They are FOUL, and just went through a lot of hiking last weekend.

They are just called Tide Space Fresheners.. You should be able to find them in the same isle that laundry detergent is in. They are similar to the sneaker balls.

Burn some toast, I mean really burn it, turn it to charcoal. Then leave it in the boots overnight, the carbon will help remove the smell, and Bicarbonate of soda will help too. Do not try to mask over the smell with something else.

If you leave your boot outside with temps in the negative, it will kill the bateria that causes the smell.
