I absolutely love my Hunter Rain Boots. Since I’m in Seattle, I get a lot of opportunities to wear them (although I also have a lot of days where I wear them thinking that it is going to rain and it turns out being completely dry so then my coworkers laugh at me).
The only problem with the Hunter Rain Boots is that the rubber blooms. This is a natural occurrence but still something that needs to be cleaned. This bloom can be removed with one item and a bit of elbow grease (but not too much, I promise this is actually really easy). Read on below to find out how to clean Hunter Boots and keep them bloom free.

Even with multiple pairs of Hunters in my closet, my absolute favorite are still the original ones I bought, the Huntress in red. The Huntress version of the Hunter rain boots are a couple of inches shorter and have a wider calf. I originally purchased both the red and black in this style and I love wearing them during the fall and winter months.
When I pulled out these boots for the rainy season, there was quite a bit of bloom built up on the rubber. I purchased some Armor All Protectant Wipes and went to work scrubbing off the bloom.
I used two wipes per boot and will probably do a follow-up this weekend to get any that I missed and give a final shine to my boots for the season.
