I agree with the others. Completely unnecessary wit today's malts. Don't waste the time.

Here is advice from a metallurgist named Palmer. Bar Keepers Friend is the source of oxalic acid. You might need someone with skinny arms to reach the bottom to scrub.
Keith it looks like you got 7 months of wear and tear on them. With my bad feet, my doctor and podiatrist have told me to get new shoes for every 6 months of wear. If you wore these daily and worked in them 6-7 days a week (brewer's hours, right) I don't think you can expect more out of a pair of boots. When I worked on my feet 60-70 hours a week in restaurant kitchens, I bought new red wing boots at least every 6-8 months. Just my .02, it's never fun to have soakers though.
Next year I will tie my personal record for living in the same house, ten years.
I used to be that way with jobs. The longest that I had ever worked for an employer up until my current employer was 5 years. I have been with my current employer for almost three times that length, and I have no plans to leave until I retire.
I retired early, and am still in the same place. One more brutal winter and I might change my mind.
One tax strategy that I read about is to retire in Vancouver WA, no state income tax, and then shop in Portland OR, no sales tax.
