Smelly shoes are a real pain and can be embarrassing at times. God forbid you go to someone’s house and are asked to take your shoes off at the door. A few things cause smelly shoes like bacteria, sweat or other foot problems. To help combat this pesky issue, take steps to prevent it. There are a few simple tricks you can do at home to keep your shoes from smelling. Check it out!

Baking soda. You’ve heard of putting baking soda in a smelly refrigerator, right? It’s essentially the same for your shoes. Sprinkle some baking soda inside your shoes and leave them overnight. Before slipping the shoes back on in the morning, shake out the remaining baking soda.

Kitty litter. Obviously, kitty litter is designed to block odors so why not use it for your shoes?! To keep the cleanup hassle-free, fill a tube sock with some kitty litter and knot the end so nothing falls out. Place the sock inside each shoe and leave it in overnight or until the smell disappears.

Freeze them. Place your shoes in a resealable bag and pop them in the freezer. Cold temperatures kill bacteria so the freezer is the best spot to keep smelly shoes.

Say goodbye to stinking shoes!
