Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Obviously boots can get in a state after being on exercise and in some peoples cases like myself greasy after servicing etc

    I just wondered if anyone knew of good ways to clean this crap off before just a normal brush polish?

    I've always just tried my best to brush the muck/grease off before polishing but never works that well.

    Any tips?
  2. If you work with grease you should have grease removing agents? If not use benz, but don't set fire to them :wink:
  3. no not a wah just wasnt sure but makes sense cheers!!
  4. Just chuck a match on and make sure you've totally shagged the boot?
