WASH & CLEAN
Always keep your boots clean.
Even if Tretorn rubber boots are built tough, they actually don’t like dirt, mud, manure, industrial oils, blood or solvents. To increase the lifespan of your boots, always make sure to regularly wash them in lukewarm soapy (glycerine) water. And if needed brush them clean in cracks and stitches, especially if there is visible dirt or mud on them. You can easily wash the exteriors of your rubber boots with a wet rag or use our Tretorn cleaning sponge.
Never dry your boots over heaters.
If the inner lining is wet you can preferably dry your boots upside down. Natural rubber performs best if dried in room temperature. No more no less. The natural rubber in Tretorn rubber boots is made without PVC, phthalates, fluorocarbons or other chemicals additives. It is only pure natural rubber and coloring pigment.
A rubber conditioner could preferably be used regularly during wet season or every other month during longer dry periods.
When rubber boots come as new they have a non-visible protective surface that wears away during excessive use. Without this surface you leave the boot undesirable exposed to sunlight, with an increased risk for the rubber to crack prematurely as a result. You apply the conditioner on a clean and dry rubber boot with a clean cloth.
You can use a rubber polish when you want to give your boots that new refreshing look.
A silicon-based solvent that is easy to apply with a clean and dry cloth on a clean and dry rubber boot. Will give you a shiny new look for the long forest walks as well as the city stroll.
When you are not using your rubber boots it is important to store them in a dry and dark place that is uniformly heated.
Natural rubber doesn’t like big changes in temperature; so let your rubber boots stay indoors rather then in the garage for the winter. They also don’t like be left out in the sun. Since the light dries out the rubber and makes it easier to crack prematurely.
