no, no, no.....let them dry completely, now this is how I have done it before and has worked very well. once they are dry, put them on and go stand in the water for five minutes, get out and with a magic marker, outline the wet spot on the inside of the waders, just a circle around the very edge of the spot, whether its the size of a pie pan or the size of a tennis ball. But the key thing is to use the same system when you do it again, say the first time you did it you stood in the water for five minutes and it gave you a wet spot the size of a pie pan, ok, now draw your circle. next let them dry over night and go back to the same place, if you walk out into a pond or lake to do this MAKE SURE you only go in the same depth each time, as a deeper depth with have more pressure and push the water threw the whole quicker creating a larger wet spot, giving you miss information.....now once they have had a chance to dry, do it again but for only two minutes, and get out, draw a circle around your now tennis ball sized whole, which you hope will be INSIDE the first circle....If not revert back to the beginning. Continue to do this and keep shortening the time you spend in the water till you have a dime sized wet spot or smaller.....and bingo! there is your wet spot, keep in mind that there might be multiple holes, so when you start getting the wet spot to a smaller size keep your eyes peeled for more than one........that’s how I do it anyways......good luck let me know if you don't understand something...-Chris
