Trying to get rid of shoe odor is sort of embarrassing, but it’s a problem many of us face.Getting rid of shoe odors should include preventative actions like:
- DON’T LET THEM STAY WET
One of the simplest ways to get rid of shoe odors is to not let them hang around soaking wet. Otherwise, you’ll end up smelling like a damp dog.
- USE FOOT SPRAY
This means using foot deodorants. They’re not expensive, and if they save you from having to keep your shoes on every time you step inside someone’s house they are worth every penny!
- BAKING SODA
Adding a sachet of #baking soda to shoes can absorb odors overnight. Apparently, shoving some of this stuff inside a sock and putting said sock into your shoes will do the trick
- REPLACE THE INSOLES
Most of the sweat from your feet that causes those odors is going to absorb into the insoles. If you have sneakers or casual flats, you can replace the insoles yourself. However, if we are talking about your favorite pump heels here, you might want to treat them with the respect they deserve. Take them to a professional who can do it for you, you will be glad you did in the end.
- RUBBING ALCOHOL AND COTTON WOOL
Soak a cotton wool ball in some rubbing alcohol, squeeze it until the ball is just about damp, and rub it around your shoes. Apparently this will kill the bacteria and remove the smells.
