Has it ever happened to you that you took off your clothes somewhere and in a moment you would prefer to put your shoes back on? And maybe they fell underground out of shame? Excessive use of shoes, sweat, dirt, bacteria, mold and lack of ventilation can all contribute to an unattractive smell.
But sometimes it is not possible to prevent it even by taking care of shoes and feet. The good news is that you can still eliminate or significantly reduce the odor.
1) Citrus peel or essential oil
Leave fresh lemon or lime peel in your shoes overnight, or spray a few drops of any essential oil on the soles. For example, use lavender and let the shoes dry well. As he reminds MedicineNet, both methods will help you eliminate odors.
2) Freezing shoes
Put the shoes in a large plastic bag and put it in the freezer overnight. The next day, take them out and let the shoes dry naturally. “The extremely low temperature will kill bacteria and make your shoes less smelly,” reminds MedicineNet.
3) Baking soda
White powder perfectly absorbs odors. So how to do it? Pour a small amount of soda into the shoes and let the powder work overnight. Do not forget to thoroughly empty or vacuum the shoes before wearing them again.
4) White vinegar
We use vinegar to season dishes and salads. But did you know that it is an excellent helper in the fight against odor? In addition, it also removes bacteria in shoes. Pour one cup of vinegar and one cup of water into a spray bottle, mix well, and spray the inside of your shoes with the solution. Let dry well. Vinegar will remove odors and keep your shoes smelling fresh for several hours.
5) Tea bags
Tea bags are a cheap and effective way. Take a few pieces, put them in your shoes for a few hours and let them work – the quality of the tea doesn’t matter, the cheapest option will do.
