Bootilicious.....

Well here it is, the answer to all our needs.

I just made this from leftovers and an unused 20w extractor fan. Blows air nicely into those stinky boots (not that I'm wearing any yet !!) but I am ready for winter.

Dragon's Den here I come............. 8)

As yet untested but there is a gentle air flow which will definitely aid drying. Depends also if it was left in the sun or thought about placing a silver backed windscreen sun shield under/behind it.

Yup Chris and they have larger diameter tubes. These are only 40mm so might re-make if they under-perform, we shall see.

Forgot about this thread - Listerine in boots works a treat.

Missus pulled me up as Listerine pricey, so now own Tesco's own brand - does the trick as well 8) WP101 invention :mrgreen:

I have also made a thing...

Excuse the shite on the floor.. Instead of an extractor fan, I've used a 120mm computer fan, wired up to a 12v phone charger. And then some poor cutting and taping. Seems to speed up the drying process a bit though.

I also just wired up another 120mm fan to a phone charger cable and jammed it in the neck of my wetsuit whilst on a hanger.. Seemed to speed up the drying time considerably once it had stopped being dripping wet.

Nice one Wigsy.

Does the missus know you have dismantled the pipework from under the kitchen sink?

just looking at those boots confirms my suspicions that c skins either BLATANTLY copy everything xcel do or they are one in the same company, same wetsuit patterns same drylock stuff etc
