What's the remedy for smelly feet?
Once the shoes are off, the stinky smell from the feet doesn't seem to go even after having showered. Any solution to this?
Cornstarch. A less fancy solution to keeping shoes deodorized and dry is to sprinkle the inside with 1 to 2 teaspoons cornstarch.
Salt. Add table salt or Epsom salts to water for a foot soak. Pour a few teaspoons of salt into a tub of warm water. Soak for ten minutes.
Vinegar. Soak your feet several times a week in an apple cider or plain vinegar bath. Mix 1/3 cup vinegar into a bowl of warm water. Soak for 10 to 15 minutes.
Don't use nylon socks and never wear your shoes if its humid. Expose your shoes to the sun whenever you can...
There are many ways to prevent this but the main reason is because of bacteria so try and keep feet dry all day and sweat free.
