6 DIY Boot Dryer

DIY Boot Dryer

Posted on December 9, 2012 by team


If you are tired of wet boots you can actually make a boot dryer yourself.

You probably know that leather shoes and boots should not dry at the heating devices. They should dry at room temperature. So we are not going to heat, we are going to ventilate.

What can be boots ventilated by from inside? With low-power fans. CPU cooler ones are perfect for that! If you don't have any, they are quite cheap. By the way, some are even illuminated.

Those we are going to use have power of 12 volts.

    Stuffing boots and gloves with newspapers does the same thing for free.

    The fans must be 12V AC or they would not work. It would “average” out to zero volts.
    Unless somehow, the internals of the fans, are rectifying it, to pulsing DC. Then they would work, but not as well as using a DC wall wart.

    Good observation though.

    Yeah, newspaper works, but not as well. This would get the inside really dry, helps combat stink foot too by now allowing the bacteria to grow well. So this is a good thing if you have stinky feet, and not just wet boots.

    And similar systems, commercially made, you can buy with a few bucks these days. Dont know which is cheaper nowadays, making your own, or buy one from the shop.
