Review: Hunter Rain Boot Spray

My Hunter rain boots (purchased last year) looked pretty sad when I took them out of storage this so they were promptly returned to the box. It's rained and it's snowed all season and I really wanted to wear them to keep dry but I didn't know what to do about the white residue that had appeared on my once glossy boots. After some quick googling I learned that it's a phenomenon called the 'blooming'. I wanted a quick, no fuss solution so I purchased a bottle of the Hunter boot spray and now I have my shiny back. :)

I suggest you try it yourself. One bottle should last multiple uses so you could definitely split the cost, $12, with a friend or keep the rest for next year.

Yi-Chia also used the spray on her adorable burgundy boots. Check out her blog post here.

Note: The instructions suggest one cloth for applying the spray and another to buff but I used only one cloth throughout the entire process (a thin handkerchief). I also did the application in the tub of my second bathroom since I could easily wipe it down afterwards.

    Omg haha.. I read yi-chia's blog post about it! And I even told my husband I needed to buy that spray for my Hunters because they look sad with all the white residue all over it. :( But now that I've read your blog post about it, I better go order some. :) Thanks for the reminder!

  4. Yes! I'm glad you got your shiny back, haha. Thanks for the shoutout! And you were way smarter than me to do it in the tub instead of the floor. I still slip and slide around that area. :)

  6. My pleasure. <3

    Oh no! Wipe it down with one of those Clorox wipes to see if that breaks down the oil. Falling is no fun.

  7. You should see a difference immediately in the spot you rub it on. :)
