Summertime is all fun and games until the house stinks of someone’s smelly shoes! It happens In a predictable cycle: hot temperatures lead to sweaty feet, and sweaty feet leave behind moisture in shoes unpleasant odors.
But don’t just throw these stinky shoes out yet, because I’m going to share some of the easiest and most efficient ways to remove odors in shoes. You’ve come to the right place if you’ve been wondering how to get the smell out of your shoes! Today, we’ll talk about How to Remove Odor From Stinky Shoes.
Dealing with the moisture issue is the secret to really removing odor from shoes. Many people actually try to tackle the odor itself by using a deodorizing spray but that just covers up the smell. But when you dry out the moisture, you help cut off the odor at the source by destroying the odor-causing bacteria,.
There are a few different ways of doing this, so in this article, I’ve included a few different options for you.
How To Remove Odor From Shoes
Pour baking soda and few drops of essential oils for scent in each shoe and leave to absorb moisture and smell overnight. Then put the shoes in a sealed ziplock bag and freeze them overnight. The freezing temperature will kill the odor-causing bacteria.
Use Baking Soda
To make the ultimate odor eliminator, use a coffee filter, some baking soda, and a rubber band! I heard these are referred to as “stinky pinkies,” but you can call them whatever you want.
In the middle of the coffee filter, simply add a few tablespoons of baking soda and add a few drops of essential oils for scent (optional). Twist the filter closed and tie it off with a rubber band. Place the baking soda sachet in each shoe overnight to absorb the moisture and smell.
You could even make a simple shoe powder to make it even faster and easier! Add a few drops of essential oils to some baking soda and then sprinkle the powder into the bottom of the shoes. Let it stay overnight, then dump it out in the morning.
Use Cotton Balls
Drop a few drops of essential oils onto a couple of cotton balls, put them inside the shoes, then leave them overnight. I suggest u sing lemon oil or another clean citrus scent!
Place your shoes out in the sun. When it comes to stinky shoes, moisture is a major problem. Leaving them in the sun can dry them out and prevent bacterial growth.
You can use your freezer to help remove odor from shoes. Start by placing them in a sealed ziplock bag, then place the bag overnight in your freezer. The freezing temperature will kill the odor-causing bacteria that will make your shoes smell fresher for a long time!
Use Lemon Peels
Place some lemon peels in your shoes overnight. If moisture is not a concern, this will help provide smelly shoes with a fresh fragrance!
Use Rubbing Alcohol
Spray with rubbing alcohol on the inside of the shoes. This method will help to dry out the causes of odor and hopefully allow the shoes to be completely used again. Rubbing alcohol is not only an antiseptic, but it evaporates very easily as well. And when you apply it to other sources of moisture, it can also cause them to evaporate!
Use a Soap Bar
Placing a bar of soap inside a stinky shoe is another form of removing odor from shoes. The soap is porous, so it will absorb odors and leave behind a fresh, clean scent. If you still have a few spare bars of soap in your cupboard or closet, this is a perfect method to try!
These are the ways on How to Remove Odor From Stinky Shoes. I hope this helps you all to deal with this issue.
