How do I use these to dry soaking wet footwear?
For completely soaking wet footwear you may need to give these inserts a little extra help by removing insoles, tipping out excess water and dabbing dry the worst of the moisture with a towel or sponge. Then inserting a set of fully regenerated boot drying bananas to work their magic.
How long do they last?
These drying bananas have no defined lifespan, essentially they can keep on being regenerated and used over and over again. A small reduction in efficiency may occur over time but is nominal. You can replace when discoloured and a freshen up is required or if the inserts become damaged.
How do I care for them?
Regenerate regularly and keep in an airtight container when not in use, such as the packaging provided or an alternative ziplock bag. Avoid contact with mud. Spot clean with a damp cloth and mild detergent or white wine vinegar if required. Do not submerge these inserts.
Why have the bananas changed colour?
This product is made with a natural fibre fabric cotton banana ‘skin’ outer. It is prone to discolouration over time from mildew, or mud. To avoid this, do not use with footwear that is contaminated with mildew or mud. Any discolouration caused is aesthetic and will not reduce the function of these inserts.
When will I know to replace them?
Replace if damaged or when you want to treat your footwear to a fresh pair.
What's the best way to dispose of the bananas at the end of their life?
Carefully over a bin, snip the top handle off with scissors. Empty the silica beads into the waste and dispose at landfill. Recycle or compost the cotton bananas skin. Re-purpose or recycle the solid nylon buckles and polyester webbing.
