    Wellie storage nightmare---What do you do?

    There are five almost daily wellie wearers in our family three kids, wife and myself. They kick their wellies off in the porch randomly in front of the door creating a trip hazard and looking a mess etc.
    I have seen various hooks etc that you slot wellies into upside down but to be honest I don't want to get hold of a muddy welly by the sole to hang it, the kids certainly wont bother.
    Does anyone else have any bright ideas? I've got a fair bit of room.

    Cheers George

    Get a wellie rack over a small tube heater AND an outside tap by the back door. Wash wellies and then hang them up- they'll be dry in no time. Simples

    It's a good idea to wash wellies when arriving home - Depending on where you've been - you could have some quite nasty stuff on them - cow poo, dogsh**, infections etc.
    You could make washing them a game for the kids - and / or apply some old fashioned discipline as above!

    We're the same but use a wellie washer (see above link). Wellies still end up all over the floor I'm afraid but at least they are clean.

    +1 for these. I first saw them outside the shoot bothy at one of the shoots where I go. Looking them up on the Internet they're made not far from me, so dropped by and picked one up a year or so ago. They work really well and, when they see it, youngsters actually want to wash their boots

    Although we each keep a pair of wellies by the back door for daily dog-walking, I store wellies in the garage in a rack I made from a long piece of batten to which I attached doweling. Cost less than a tenner and keeps boots tidy.

    Just leave them. Your butler will take care of them.

    Thanks guys that wellie washer looks good. Perhaps clean wellies and a rack is the way to go, though 185 is a lot to spend on wellie cleaning!
