Do you have smelly shoes? With the summer on its way, we are bound to be wearing shoes without (or with) socks. Ya know, flats, Toms, sandals, heels, trainers, Sperry’s, Keds etc. This can often lead to sweaty, smelly feet, and hence, smelly shoes. Well, there’s a quick fix to this with our very own DIY shoe powder.
- Find a zippered plastic bag or a container with a good seal. Label that container – otherwise people will start to wonder what all that white powder is!
- Add 1/2 cup corn starch, 1/4 cup baking soda and 1/4 cup baking powder.
- If you would like to, add 5 drops of your favourite essential oil (thyme, lavender etc. offer great scents as well as odour-fighting properties).
- Shake all contents together and voila, you now have a homemade foot powder.
To use it, sprinkle a pinch in each shoe and tap the shoe at the heel and then at the toe to effectively distribute the powder. Do this in the morning before you leave the house and use it any time you feel your feet getting sweaty (read: smelly)
