Re: Wow....I just found out the lining comes out of the Aircast surgical boots to clean!
Great news! Glad you found an easy way to clean the boot. I posted the original question a while back.
My aircast boot lining will not come out as it is glued onto the shell (there are a few spots of velcro, but this is for the pads only) in several areas. I started to just scrub it with handsoap, followed by rinsing well in the tub. Warning for those with a XP or diabetic model Aircast boot (gray): it takes a good day in the August sun to dry completely, so be prepared to stay home with a "naked" foot.
The black boot (Donjoy) comes apart completely and I just tossed the lining in a net bag and put it in with the cold laundry, then hung to dry. It is easier to reattach lining if you put a plastic grocery sack over each lateral support rod. Replace lining when dry, then slide bags off rods.
Good to hear there are some boots that come apart completely. I wonder why some do, and some do not? Maybe a different factory?
