Does anyone know if I can tumble dry:
Neoprene brushing boots?
Neoprene gallop boots with plastic strike pad?
Leather knee boots?
Cheers :) xx

I wouldnt :/
I would put them on a radiator although be careful with the leather ones...they will crack if dried out too quick!!

I usually wash them by hand, spin them in the dryer so they aren't dripping and then put them on the radiator. I was just after a quick solution so that I could use them this afternoon but I didn't want to ruin them as I can't afford to buy him any more :) I just used his schooling boots and hoped he didn't fall. Cheers :) xx

Definately not the knee boots, you should just wipe them over with a cloth leave them to dry if they get very wet and oil and clean like a bridle
I tend to just hang my boots up to dry neoprene drys quite easily and qucikly

I spin my neoprene brushing boots in the washing machine and then put then on a hanger in the airing cupboard and as the hot water tank is in there, they dry pretty quickly. Although I also have hi-viz brushing boots for hacking that I can use if my normal ones are still wet so I am not normally too bothered about getting them dry quickly.

The knee boots aren't fully leather so I hand wash them and then I oil the leather when they're dry. It was my own fault really. I couldn't be bothered washing them last night :lol:

Definately don't tumble dry leather - you will wreck it.
You can tumble dry the boots but they will actually dry pretty quick if spun well in the washing machine.

I wouldnt put anything with leather in the washing machine, never mind tumble dryer, id wash on a cool wash then set on a heater as long as not too hot.

I wouldnt tumble dry leather or anything plastic as it warps (tried it) but I tumble dry my neoprene boots all the time and one set are 10 years old just on a cool setting tho
