After you put your boots through the ringer, make sure to take the next step to properly clean hiking boots.
Want your hiking boots to last a long time? Cleaning hiking boots regularly is one of the best things you can do to keep your hiking gear in good shape. Plus, nobody wants to keep muddy, smelly boots in the closet with the rest of your shoes.
When done right, washing hiking boots will get rid of the stink, wash off the dirt, and keep your boots protected from future sweat and stink. Here’s how HEX cleans hiking boots.

How to protect hiking boots
You don’t need to (and probably shouldn’t) give your hiking boots a full bath after every trek. Here’s how to quickly and easily refresh smelly boots and shoes – even on the go.
How to use HEX Spray on hiking boots
- Remove laces and insoles
- Spray boots thoroughly– inside and out– with HEX. Don't be shy! Use plenty of spray to really soak the boots for best results.
- Let dry completely before wearing. Try to place the boots over a vent or by a fan to keep the air moving while they dry.
I use this for my cycling shoes and hiking boots. Works so well that I might use as underarm deodorant. – Amazon Reviewer
