According to a Japanese study, the smell occurs from the bacteria that live on human skin and in shoes. These bacteria feed on sweat and produce an acid by-product. However it can be reduced by having drier feet. Furthermore, the smell can still linger on your feet.

There are easy natural ways to get rid of your smelly stinky feet. So let’s check it out:

1. Scrub your feet properly

Probably the best way to get rid of the odour is to scrub your feet. Bacteria feed on the dead skin cells. So exfoliate your feet properly with brush, scrubber, anti-bacterial soap or any washcloth.

2. Soak your feet in lukewarm water

Water washes away all your dead cells and bacteria that cause stinky smell. Dip your feet in a bucket of hot water. You can add a half or 1 c kosher salt and soak your feet till 20 minutes.

You can also add vinegar or black tea bags into hot bucket of water.

3. Wear socks often

Try to wear socks often. It absorbs sweat from your feet, leaving your feet as less smelly as possible.  Socks also keep your feet dry. You will have less greasy feet.

4. Dry your shoes

Keep your shoes dry. The more your shoes remain soggy and sweaty, the more it will smell bad. Hence always place your shoes in any dry airy place. This will not let any stinky smell stay on your shoes.

5. Take Care of Your Shoes

Shoes must be taken care of very often. The more mud, dirt and pollutants it will carry, the more it will be soggy, smelly and full of bacteria. Hence regular brushing away dirt from your shoes is a must. Also, wipe your shoes with rubbing alcohol. In fact vodka works equally well.

Rubbing alcohol is antiseptic, it dries faster and it destroys odour as well.

6. Use powder

Spray some talcum powder, corn starch or baby powder inside your shoes and also on your toes and then wear the shoes. The powder will keep your feet dry and also leaves a good smell. Furthermore, the corn starch helps absorb the sweat.

7. Use baking soda

Use baking soda in your shoes. You can also sprinkle some baking soda in your socks. This way it will remain moisture free and odour free; as baking soda helps absorb moisture and odour.

8. Wash your shoes regularly

Your shoes can stink extremely bad. Hence just like the clothes, wash it regularly. And keep it for drying out completely for at least 24 hours.
