Good on you for caring about that sort of stuff mate.
Stopping the spread of whirling disease, rock snot and mud snails is everyone's responsibility after returning home.

In New Zealand the accepted methods for cleaning boots and waders between waters is drying them completely for at least 3 days.

If this isn't practical or if you are fishing new waters soon, boots soaked in hot water (above 50C)with some detergent, Napisan, salt or mild bleach solution for half an hour is also acceptable.

If you have felt soles, I'd imagine it would be longer - I'm not that clued up about the felt sole requirements as they are banned in NZ under the Conservation Act.

Don't forget to give your lines and rods a good rinse down too under the shower.
