Are bad smelling shoes making your life hard? The shame and annoyance that is connected with the your foul shoes is something everyone has dealt with at least once in their lifetime. But the good news is that it is not hard at all to get rid of smelly feet.

There is one simple life hack to help you with your stinky feet.

Find out what is the cause

If you regularly exercise, but don’t use socks, then that is the cause of your smelly feet, always wear socks when working out. When you work out, you sweat and if your feet are wet for prolonged periods, then they will start to smell. The smell will come back each time if you are not wearing socks, because microorganisms are already living in your shoe that cause the bad smell. Socks will prevent you from sweating all over the insides of your shoe.

One easy thing to prevent smell

Use baking soda, yes the one that you use for baking. If it comes as a surprise for you, then rest assured, you are not the only one. I was skeptical of this solution myself, but once i tried it, when nothing else seemed to work, this method worked like magic for me. Below are the steps you should take to rid your shoes of bad smell:

  1. Find your shoes and put baking soda inside them, but don’t drown them in it.
  2. Go to sleep and leave your shoes in baking soda.
  3. Before putting your shoes on in the morning remove the baking soda and voila your shoes should be without smell.

How does it work?

Baking soda is a natural deodorizer and acts as a scent remover if left in your shoes overnight. Baking soda will kill the microorganisms that cause the bad smell in your shoes and you will be free of the foul stench.

If you don’t have any baking soda, go to the nearest store now and get some. You can be free of smelly shoes in just one night.
