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!xo –

    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. :)xo, Yi-chiaAlways Maylee

    My pleasure. <3Oh no! Wipe it down with one of those Clorox wipes to see if that breaks down the oil. Falling is no fun.

    You should see a difference immediately in the spot you rub it on. 🙂
