    Default How do you dry boots?

    I have base board heaters so I can't just turn them upside down over the air vents. My kids were outside and came back in with snowballs in their boots. They have since been given lessons on how to properly put on and do up boots (2 velcro closures), but I'm sure this will happen again

    hummm have you tried putting the books on a rack by the baseboard heaters? The warm air would dry them out it would probably just take longer then normal...

    When we had baseboard heaters, I think we just put the mittens, boots, etc near them (not touching). So maybe try to open them up as much as possible and lay them on the floor infront of the heats, with the open part facing them.

    You could also try maybe putting a chair nearby and hang the boots somewhere from that, so they are hovering over the heaters................but you'd want to make sure your keeping an eye on them and they don't fall onto the vent........and then forget about them.

    Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks!! I have them lined up on their sides on the floor. I want to put them on a chair but all our chairs are wood and I'm afraid the water will wreck them (paranoid much? lol). Some one needs to invent something!

    I saw one once that came with the dryer. It was one of those super fancy dryers though

    You gave me an idea... what about using a hairdryer?

    I bought the best boot drying thing from Canadian Tire! It hangs on the wall, is plugged in and has these hoses to stick in each boot. It does four boots at once!
