One person has commented that it really is footwear cleansing .. to
cover shoes, boots .. etc.

Yes. I really do want to avoid the misuse of the tag by those who cannot
be bothered to make a more correct tag.
The use of the term 'footwear' is too cumbersome, especially if
translated into other languages. I'd like to keep it simple.
In order to separate the two I like to distinguish them by using shoe
for the beautification/cleaning and boot for the cleansing/purging.
The boot is usually seen as the more rugged of the two and usually taken
as the thing used for bush-walking/tramping etc.
Any other ideas as to words to use?
I like that purging is a significantly different form from cleaning -
leading to more visual separation between the two tags.
