    First I do some laundry then I put my shoes under the dryer exhaust. Its pretty convient to do at my place.

    roll up balls using newspaper.place them in your boots. it always works for me.be sure to pack it in tight.

    The dryer exhaust is sending out mostly moist air,the moisture being from the close that are drying inside that dryer.

    Put them in the oven and turn it on low..............Mom will like that!

    I have a boot dryer from Cabela's. Plug it in, put your boots on it, and they are dry by morning. About $ 45.00.My stepdad has the propane model that runs off of 1 pound canisters.It dries much faster and comes in really handy at deer camp.:D

    You can always buy 2 of the same boots if the money is there. That way if something happens to one or if one pair gets wet you have time to let them dry. Especially if you forget to do something about it the day before.

    I put mine on top of the hot water heater. usually dry in the morning. Also keep a old pair as backup or wear in the wet weather.
