    My feet sweat so I do have trouble controlling the odor. The wife has me putting baking soda in my shoes when I take them off which is helping but I may need to get new shoes. :BangHead:

    Try freezing them a few days. It kills the bacteria that causes the odor. But you probably have to do it frequently. We did it once with my sons shoes and it did help. How about disinfectant spray? Let it dry well before you put your foot in of course.

    DonnA sounds like a good idea.

    I have been told to put a fabric softener in each shoe when you are not wearing them helps. I have tired this when I am planning to go to a shoe store so the sale
    person will not have to suffer from my sweating feet:laugh:

    Because of wearing heavy work boots at work for 28 years (not counting the military), I developed a terrible foot odor problem since my feet couldn't breathe. After I retired and quit wearing shoes, the odor disappeared. All I wear on my feet now (most of the time) are sandals. At home I'm barefoot. Florida rare gets cold enough to wear shoes, and the only place I wear them is at church.

    aaaaawhen I was a route salesman some 30 yrs ago, I bought shoes that made my feet stink bad. I think it was due to the die Ithey used on the shoes. Later, I bought a more expensive shoe and the smell went away.

    Mine don't 'stink' if I shower every day. LOL

    Try putting crumpled newspaper in them before freezing them. The newspaper absorbs the odor.

    I did this with a cowhide purse that had been in the basement for a few years. It smelled terribly musty and moldy.

    It came out of the freezer like brand new and I never had another problem with it.

    Also wearing 100% cotton socks helps some people.

    It helped Brent with his foot odor and also athlete's foot. I still sprayed his sneakers with Febreze though. ;)

    What about Odor Eaters? Now, if the rest of your body stinks also, DO NOT USE Odor Eaters. You might take one step...and disappear. :laugh:

    This isn't about whether or not my feet stink, but I was wondering if any of you have tried those things that have some kind of pad on them that you're supposed to wrap around the bottoms of your feet right before bedtime that's supposed to draw out all of the toxins in your body?

    Do they really do what their manufacturer claim they do, or is this just another way for them to relieve us from some of our money?

    I'm a little leery about whether or not these pads have been clinically proven to help us poor souls (soles?), or is it just another hoax that gullible people will fall for?

    There are quite a few different companies selling them. I tend not to believe their claims.

    They were developed by, and are made in, Japan. Remember, those are the people who bind their babies feet to keep them from growing......:eek:

    My thoughts exactly! :thumbs:

    To hear them tell it, we're all doomed! :eek: Why, we're more of a walking hazardous waste dump than we can possibly realize!

    Forget those pads.....I'm calling the local HAZ MAT Team ASAP!

    Do you think I could be eligible for some of the EPA's Superfund cleanup grants?

    How I ever made it to age 62 is a miracle beyond all human comprehension!

    We had a guy here in Florida who came to church in sandals. Also, I never saw anyone wear shorts to church before moving to Florida. I even saw one pastor wear them on Wednesday evenings. It's been a bit difficult for me to get used to the many differences between northern Baptist and southern Baptist churches.

    I don't know, but one day my cat smelled my feet after work and gave me a dirty look and made a sound akin to a loud EH! :tongue3:

    You might squeeze a few drops of lemon in your shoes too, LeBuick. Maybe before you freeze them. ;)

    My feet never stink, but the green fog that comes of of them sure does.

    If you have ever played hockey, you'll know that hand sweat can smell as bad as feet sweat.

    Bobby! You are so mean! :laugh:

    Every year, I've got some kid/s in my classes whose feet I can smell across the room. It's usually guys - sorry guys, but it is. ;)

    The wife doesn't like the idea of me freezing my shoes. However, she bought me a new pair on her way home today from work. :thumbs:

    Don't worry, I'll have them broke in by next week.
