smiley feet:)

So, you're embarrassed to take off your shoes in public yeah?? hmm try some of these tips below and maybe you'll say bye to those smelly feet and instead say hello to new, smiling feet. (Gosh, I'm starting to sound like some cheesy sales person)

  • Sprinkle sodium bicarbonate or baking soda inside each sock and insole of shoes. Baking soda inhibits growth of bacteria which is responsible for bad smell. Also try corn starch or baby powder.
  • Soak your feet in water that has baking soda and few teaspoons of vinegar. Vinegar is a natural anti-fungal remedy for smelly feet
  • Soak your feet in 1/3 apple cider vinegar with part of warm water
  • Soak your feet in green tea of black tea ( two tea bags in a small tub of water will do). Tea contains a natural tannic acid that will kill bacteria that lives in the sweat of the feet
  • Sprinkle sage in your shoes before putting them on or drink a cup of sage tea before going to bed. You can also make a sage tea foot bath by infusing 10 large leaves ( 1 tea spoon of ground age) in warm water
  • Wash your feet with anti-bacterial soap and dry thoroughly afterwards
  • Take a zinc supplement 
  • Putting charcoal or shoe odour-eaters inserts into your shoes 

So these tips sound quite effective. But to know how effective they really are, try practicing the tips yourself!
