Any suggestions for drying out waders? Had a leak in my boot that I have since patched up but wanted to see if anyone had a suggestion on drying the boot out before hunting this weekend. I’ve been hanging them upside down all week. Would a blow dryer help? Is so, what’s the best method?

A fan will dry them out fairly quickly

Baking soda in a coffee filter down in the boots

edit: can also just dump it in boots and vacuum out a day or two later

Wader/boot dryer is one of the best investments I have ever made. but before I had that I would just set my shopvac on the blower setting and stick the hose down into the boot and turn it on outside.
blow dryer stuck in the end of a PVC pipe works pretty well too.

I went under the water last weekend. Turned them inside out all the way to the boot, and put the garage fan blowing on them for a full day each boot.

Are all of y'all wearing neoprene waders, or breathables?
