- Cleaning muddy walking boots?

I take them with me into the shower and scrub it all off with the nail brush. Depending on your circumstances, spousal disapproval may follow.
Followed by a call to dyna-rod.
What ever you do, don’t stick em on a direct heat source to dry. Mates winter cycle boots delaminated after cooking on the radiator.Posted 6 years agoCountZeroMember

If they’re nubuck/suede would a nailbrush not damage them? I use a nailbrush/scrubbing brush for the sole and wetwipe for the uppers.
If that happened they’d be straight back to the shop! They’d be little more than fashion boots. Quality boots ought to be able to survive being put in a bowl or the sink with some warm water and scrubbed with a nail brush, it’s pretty much what the manufacturers recommend.Posted 6 years agounknownMember
Another ‘I have no life skills, so need to ask STW’ question.
From the poster that brought us such classic threads as “Road bike virgin, clueless and in need of help…”, “Newbie Turbo Trainer questions”, “Any way to tell tubeless?” and my personal favourite: “Roundabouts”, including this gem:
Approaching a roundabout there’s 2 lanes, you want to go straight on into a single lane road, none of the lanes are marked, which lane do you take?
Life skills? Lacking irony skills I’d say.Posted 6 years ago
Bit silly comparing questions about a form of cycling you’re not familiar with and a question about how to clean a pair of shoes! And a bit silly that you seem to think that knowing about turbo trainers and road bikes is a life skill. Oh dear.
However I’m sure the OP is grateful for your support.

Oh I don’t know, I think the 20 seconds I spent looking at your posting history gave me a pretty good illustration that one man’s newbie query is another man’s “life skill”. Roadies know all about turbo trainers but non-walkers have no reason to know about looking after walking boots. Which lane to take at a roundabout is fairly universal though.
The point is, before you point your finger make sure your hands are clean.Posted 6 years ago
