The Ozone Boot Dryer by Scent Crusher

Saturday, October 17th, 2020

Wichita, KS – The premium method for cleaning, drying, and removing odors from your shoes or gear is available with the Scent Crusher® Ozone Boot Dryer. Hunters demand a lot from their gear, and their boots are no different. Whether you’re putting the miles on in the mountains, working hours in and around the shop, or climbing into your treestand, we ask a lot of our boots. Keep yours clean, dry, and kicking with the Ozone Boot Dryer from Scent Crusher. 

The Ozone Boot Dryer uses a chemical-free drying method that destroys odors, mold, mildew, and viruses by utilizing the power of heated air and ozone. The air pipes are adjustable to fit tall boots to small slip-on shoes. The boot dryer has a small footprint (10″ W x 24.5” H x 9.75” D), weighing just 3.7 pounds, allowing for use in a small mudroom or hallway. The Dryer can run up to three hours with a 110v AC and has an automatic shutoff timer so you can be worry-free. Like other Scent Crusher® products, the Boot Dryer comes with a maintenance-free, two-year warranty. 

“This boot dryer isn’t just for hunting boots. It is lightweight, well built, and excellent quality. This thing has worked great for me at both drying and deodorizing a whole list of things; hunting boots, work/duty boots, running shoes, hats, gloves, socks, facemasks, and gear packs. Bottom line, I would recommend this to a friend,” said Chuck, a Scent Crusher® customer.


Scent Crusher® products are a complete scent elimination system. Based on research from NASA, these systems were developed using an exceptionally effective Ozone Generator that is 100% chemical-free and effectively removes odors from your gear. Scent Crusher® ozone generators produce on-demand ozone which is attracted to bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants. The ozone attacks and destroys scent and bacteria through oxidation, then converts it safely back into oxygen, leaving your gear scent-free. For more information, visit ScentCrusher.com.
