How to Clean Pig Poop from your Boots
If you’re out working with the pigs all day, it’s very likely that you’re going to get pig poop on your boots. But, that’s what they’re for, right? Before you go tracking that pig poop into the house, you should definitely get to cleaning it off. Cleaning pig poop from your boots is a relatively simple task.
What you will need:
- Sponge or cloth
- Toothpick or chopstick
- First, take your boots off. It’s a lot easier to get them cleaned if they aren’t on your feet.
- Then, take your hose and go to an area that where you don’t have to worry about runoff. Rinse off your boots thoroughly. This should get rid of a majority of the pig poop.
- Take the dishsoap, put it into a gallon bucket with some warm water. Then, use the sponge or cloth and wipe each of the boots down, rinsing them shortly thereafter.
- Flip each boot over. If there is any mud or pig poop stuck in the ridges of your sole, use the toothpick or chopstick to pick away at it. Use the sponge or cloth to wipe the soles off as well.
- Rinse off the boots entirely again, and allow them to air dry outside before you decide to use them again.
As you can see, cleaning the pig poop off your boots is not difficult and only takes a few minutes. You don’t have to thoroughly disinfect your boots like this every time you come back from the pig pen, but doing it once a month or so is a good idea.
