Boot bags are used for storing and protecting boots, keeping the boots cool, dry, and scuff-mark free.
Wellington Boots are particularly prone to small scratches and are affected by sunlight as they are made of rubber - a natural product (from the Rubber Tree).
It is important to keep your rubber boots clean and in the dark.
Vulcanised rubber decays slowly when placed in UV light (sunlight).
Generally, your boots will last longer if you keep them in a bag.
Ensure they are dry and mud-free before putting the boots inside a wellie bag.
It is absolutely essential that wellies and the welly boot bag are NOT left in the sun and are stored in a cool, dry, dark place - such as a cupboard or hallway storage unit.
