How to store winter boots

How to store winter boots
Before you put your winter boots into the closet until the next winter there are some details to be considered.
At a certain point during the year not only Christmas decoration or skiing equipment, but also winter boots disappear somewhere in the closet or the garret until they will be needed again next season. In order to store them professionally there are a few things to be considered. Firstly, we recommend you use shoe trees. By doing that you even out creases, preserve the shape of the shoe and the handling while cleaning will be much easier. At first you dry clean the shoe with a cloth or a brush. If necessary, you can then also use other Collonil care products for damp cleaning. Water-soluble stains you can remove by using Clean & Care Classic. If there are water or snow marks you can use Collonil Shampoo Classic. For hydro-carbon-soluble stains our Special Cleaner Spray is suitable. Now waterproof your shoes with at least three spray applications and make sure to use other Collonil care products in order to refresh the material´s colour and to provide it with nutrients. For storage we recommend fabric bags or shoe boxes. Please also make sure that the shoes are not exposed to too much humidity while being stored during summer. Now you and your shoes are well prepared for the next winter.
