Take the smell out

No 41/79

Shoes that get little rest sometimes need help with the smell. Enjoy our four best tips.

You need:

Smelly shoes and tea bags, freezer or baking soda

How to:

1. Place fresh, dry tea bags inside the shoes and let them absorb the odour.

2. Put your footwear in plastic bags and place in the freezer overnight to kill off bacteria causing the smell.

3. Sprinkle the inside of your shoes with baking soda and let it work its PH-neutralising wonders overnight to keep odour at bay.

4. Wear other shoes too. If you wear your favourite shoes every other day instead of every day, they get a fair chance to dry and air out in between uses.
