wet boots

#3
Assuming leather boots:
Soak them in fresh water with the insoles etc removed (An hour minimum or longer if you were standing in the sea for a length of time). Tip water out and allow to drain. Leave them to air dry.

With a damp cloth, wipe away any salt deposits.
Apply neatsfoot oil to rejuvenate the leather. Leave for 24 hrs and finish off with Nikwax or Kiwi as desired.

Goretex/fabric boots: Just wash them out and dry them I suppose.

A tip my brother gave me;
Always apply the polish the night before & leave overnight so the oils from the polish soak into the leather,Dunno if that's gospel but it's worked so far.
