How To Get Rid Of Bad Smell From Shoes

Published on

Having smelly shoes is a very bad situation to be in, not only for kids, but even grown-ups lately walk around with shoes that are very

However, it is always important to note that in most scenarios, the bad smell doesn’t necessarily depend on a lack of personal hygiene; sometimes it has to do with the proliferation of bacteria that makes the smell keep coming. Bacteria proliferation refers to the increase in the number of bacteria in a population. Bacteria replicate by binary fission, a process by which one bacterium splits into two, and in this case, the perspiration and humidity inside a shoe can create ideal conditions for it, i.e., the methanol that’s found in the feet.

Worry not, though; I got you on this one, as I will be taking you through what you can do to do away with the bad smell in your shoes.

1. Consider Using baking soda.
One of the solutions that is easy to source and get even in your kitchen is this one, which can be used as a natural deodorant as it is capable of absorbing all the bacteria, hence the solution to your problem. All you need to do is mix it with cornstarch, if at all you have it, and baking powder, after which you sprinkle them directly into your shoes and leave them for a whole night. When you get up tomorrow, it will all be gone.

2. Use Dry Soap bars.
Easy peazy, just insert a dry bar of soap into both of your shoes and leave them inside for the entire night. The soap will absorb all the bacteria and bad smells, leaving behind a pleasant fragrance. Also, don’t just use any other soap; use a good soap with a good fragrance.

3. White Vinegar
How about vinegar? This is a natural remedy that neutralizes the bad smell of your shoes. All you need to do is mix it with equal parts water, then spray it in the shoes, but before then, ensure they are thoroughly cleaned before spraying them inside and that they are dry. This vinegar is available in all leading supermarkets nationwide.

4. Take advantage of the sunlight.
Use what you already have free of charge; all you need to do is expose them to direct sunlight and let them dry off. Some of these shoes smell because they are probably wet inside.

5. Always wear socks.
To those who love wearing shoes barefoot, this is some bad news for you. You are lucky enough if they don’t smell, but with time, what do you think will happen? The moment you start sweating and your feet are in a very warm, constricted space, the smell comes out. It is nothing complicated, really. Wearing socks helps the feet by ensuring the fabric can absorb the sweat from your feet. Also, consider changing your socks daily and ensuring your feet are dry before wearing them.

6. Replace the insole.
It could be that your insole is worn out, and it indeed does pass water, or maybe they are old. Consider using other ones and replacing the old ones with new ones.
