How to get rid of bad smell in shoes


An unpleasant smell coming from shoes can easily spoil the mood of others, and with it your reputation. In the summer, this problem is most relevant, especially for those who prefer to wear closed shoes. How to care for shoes to avoid the growth of bacteria that contribute to bad smell?

  • Soda

Soda is absolutely a win-win. In addition to its cleaning properties, soda is also an excellent absorbent. It absorbs odors and even moisture, so it will be your true ally in ridding your shoes of bad smell. Take about a tablespoon of baking soda and pour it into your shoes. It will be much more effective if you put baking soda in your shoes at night and shake your shoes a little in the morning before you put on your shoes.

If you have leather shoes, choose a different method because baking soda can dry out your leather.

  • Coffee

If you love coffee and drink it often, you can «clean» your shoes every day in this way. Coffee beans are good at eliminating any odors. Take a handful of coffee beans and put them in your shoes for a few hours. The beans must be dry because wet beans will leave the shoes damp and can increase the smell, and the coffee beans can lighten the shoes.

  • Vinegar

White vinegar can be used to quickly eliminate bad breath. An acidic environment is detrimental to the development of fungal microorganisms. Be careful when using vinegar on leather shoes. Take a cotton pad and soak it in white vinegar. Wait for the shoes to dry, and then you can safely put on shoes. If you wear slightly damp shoes, the bad smell from the shoes can mix with the smell of white vinegar.

  • insoles

If you notice an unpleasant smell from your shoes, it may be enough just to change the insoles. Opt for insoles made from natural materials so that your feet can breathe. With new insoles, you will be more comfortable, especially if you spend a lot of time on your feet. Change the insoles in your shoes every 2-3 days. Before further use, wash old insoles thoroughly with running water and soap and dry.

  • Antibacterial deodorants

Antibacterial deodorants ensure shoe hygiene and reliably neutralize unpleasant odors. Thanks to the pleasant aroma, the shoes retain a feeling of freshness for a long time. The deodorant is suitable for all types of shoes.

Spray the deodorant well on the inside of the shoes and allow to dry. Apply after every shoe wear.
