It may seem obvious and crystal clear. You put on the rubber boots as soon as one tiny drop of water falls from the sky and let the child walk, run, jump and play in them all day long. Unfortunately, the truth is not really that simple.
Rubber is a non-breathing material and therefore the rubber boots should rest and dry out properly between the times they are worn. A boot like the one in the picture should not be used daily, but as a complement for really rainy and wet days.
Gimo is a classic and affordable all-weather boot.
Gimo is a warm-lined rubber boot and an affordable complement to the regular winter wardrobe for really rainy and soaked days. The boot is 100 % waterproof and is made of recyclable SEBS rubber completely free from PVC. You can buy an extra inner sock if you want a couple of rubber boots to vary between.
HOW TO TAKE CARE OF GIMO
Did you know that Gimo is washable at 30 degrees in the washing machine? Remember to remove the lining and wash and dry it separately. Both the boot and the lining should be dried at room temperature, not in the tumble dryer because they may shrink. The boot and the lining can also dry in a drying cabinet as long as the temperature is low. Gently pull out the lining and hang Gimo upside down for faster drying. When the lining is really dry you can put it back in the boot again.
You can also clean the boots with a dish brush, water and mild detergent or washing-up liquid. Washcloths and foam cleaning are also effective. Avoid solvent-based cleaners and hard brushes. Remember to pour any gravel and sand from the inside. And behold! Now the rubber boots and the small feet are comfy again.
