The best way to eliminate smelly feet is to stop wearing socks and shoes and run around barefoot all the time. The problem is that we simply have to wear shoes. Since shoes are a necessity, you are going to have to take steps to eliminate the odor from your stinky shoes.
One of the first things to do to stop your shoes from smelling is to wear sandals and flip flops when the weather is warm. Sandals and flip flops are designed to be worn without socks, allowing your feet to be constantly exposed to air. The air cools your feet so they don’t sweat. Without the sweat, your feet remain dry and free of odor. Wearing sandals will also give your smelly shoes a chance to air out.
Wash Your Feet
When you are preparing for the day, wash your feet. Make sure you really scrub in between your toes. After your feet have dried cover them with a layer of talcum powder and put on clean socks. In addition to keeping your feet dry and absorbing any odor, the talcum powder will also keep your sock from sticking to your foot, decreasing the chances of you getting a rub or blister.
Change Your Socks
If you are some one who has feet that are always sweating, you should always keep one or two pairs of clean socks with you so that you can change.
Use Talcum Powder
Sprinkle the inside of your shoes with talcum powder. The talcum powder in your shoes absorbs the odor from your shoes the same way that baking soda does in your refrigerator. The problem with putting talcum powder in your shoes is it shows up on your dark colored socks.
Wash Your Shoes
If you wear a lot of sneakers, you should make sure that you clean them once a week. The best way to do this is to throw them in your washing machine with some other clothing. Storing your shoes in the sunlight, instead of a dark closet is an excellent way to remove any odor.
When you are shopping for shoes, try to purchase ones that are made out of all natural materials. Shoes that are made out of synthetic materials tend to hold the odor and since they don’t allow your feet to breathe, they increase the amount your feet sweat.
