    I made a boot dryer many years ago, super simple with PVC pipe and some elbows and T's
    And some straight pipe.
    A single hair dryer is plenty to do 2 boots at a time and I have ran my hair dryer for 8 hours at a time with no issues on low heat
    If your temps are too high then pull the hair dryer away from the inlet of the PVC pipe by a couple inches and it will then pull in cool air with the warm from the hair dryer.

    Do not over think this.
    Another way is to lay the boot on the floor on it's side and lay the hair dryer so it blows into the open boot.
    Adjust the distance and if you notice the air will exit the boot and you can place another boot in the path of the exiting airflow.

    Yes that works also.

    LOL! I started reading that and thought it was going to say "I stuff em with old news paper wads and set em ON fire."

    Yep, THAT would dry them out! :pms2:

    lot of hair dryers have blow setting only, no heat. Don't use one any more, not enough to dry. Best hair dryer and it does have a cool air only mode is the Dyson, bought one for the wife a couple years ago and she loves it. Little pricey for a boot dryer tho!

    There is a low power heating pad that is used for starting seeds, that coupled with some sort of air mover might do it.
