For brush polishing
Two boot brushes, polish on, polish off.
A nail scrubber or something similar for removing mud and dirt. If it has something you can clean the tread of the boots with so much the better, otherwise use an old lolly stick, or a match.
Keep your brush polishing gear in a small drawstring bag so it's all together.
