9. Spray some tea tree oil
Tea tree oil contains natural anti-bacterial properties that can kill the microscopic bastards responsible for that disgusting smell. Mixed with other natural oils like mint or lavender, a good concoction won’t just kill the bacteria, but will also keep your shoes (and your feet) smelling like fresh-cut daisies on a warm spring day with babies and kittens and rainbows.
If you want something from the experts, check out this stuff from Rocket Pure. It’s a 100 percent natural spray made from tea tree, eucalyptus, mint, and thyme. Everyone loves it.
10. If all else fails…
Go back to the basics. Companies like Dr. Scholl’s, Gold-Bond, and Odor-Eaters have created an entire way of life around making sure your feet don’t hurt or stink, and offer entire lines of odor-fighting insoles, sprays, and chemical powders to help absorb foul smells and moisture, and kill bacteria.
And if that doesn’t work, put on your flip flops and head to the doctor, because you’ve got trouble!
