Your feet are getting hot, and the shoes you’re wearing are pinching your toes. You take them off, and a horrible odor comes wafting up. You’re horrified and hope that no one else notices as you shove your feet back into your shoes.
Stinky feet can be highly embarrassing. Even keeping shoes on doesn’t always contain the smell. Caused by sweat and bacteria on your feet, the smell of feet can be combated. Check out these 8 simple home remedies you can do to eliminate your stinky feet.
Using powder to help absorb sweat and odor is a great way to combat the stink. Men’s Health recommends some inexpensive powders that you probably have in your kitchen cupboard: baking soda or cornstarch. If you want to add a little scent to your powder, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil.
Applying antiperspirant to your feet may seem rather unusual; but since sweat and bacteria are the sources of the smell, Medical News Today says to apply the antiperspirant to your feet. Just as it helps keep your pits from stinking, it should keep your feet from smelling.
