When to Manage Odor
Often as a way to prevent bacteria growth in new and well worn boots
Active Time:2 minutes
Wait Time:5-60 minutes
Dry boots & remove footbeds
If your boots are wet on the inside, dry them before applying odor reducing products. We recommend using a boot dryer.
If your boots have removable footbeds, take them out after your boots are dry.
It is not recommended to use high heat sources, such as direct sunlight or open flame, to dry your boots as it may cause damage, such as delaminating the outsole or cracking the leather.
Apply Odor Eliminator
Spray the inside of your boots with Danner Odor Eliminator. Be sure to spray the front of the boot where your toes go.
Let them dry for 5-10 minutes before wearing.
Odor is minimized!
You may repeat these steps as often as you’d like.
We recommend replacing footbeds once per year to manage odor.
