Hello /HOWTO/

I live in a fucking hot country and my body odor is fine apart from my feet. If I wear sandals fine, but sometimes I like to wear shoes or have to and when I do, damn my feet stink and so do my shoes. How do I stop this from happening... Pic unrelated

I don't think it is fungus, I think I have that condition where you sweat a lot. I am not overweight but I always have sweaty palms and stuff. I forget the name of it but yeah it kinda sucks and the treatment isn't fun or something I would want, it basically puts a stop to your body from sweating, which it needs to do to a certain extent.

But anyway, feet, shoes, you say tea tree oil? Any other hacks people know..

There is some kind of mint cream you can rub on your feet that takes way the stank

if your shoes have accumulated stank over time
put them in a plastic bag and then into the freezer for at least 24 hours, this will freeze bacteria to death.

wash your shoes if you can, take out the insoles and clean them
wear socks so your sweat does not go into the shoe (socks are easier to wash)
put corn starch in your shoes ( they use it in fabreeze)
don't sweat.

I also sweat a lot regularly, if you find yourself with shoes that stink just put them into the wash at 60 degrees by themselves with a lot of fabric softener and you'll be better prepared.

In terms of day-to-day cleanliness make sure you wash your pits double as hard with stronger-grade body wash with bits in to make sure you're not quite as sweaty by 3pm (I find myself stinking by this point and is quite hard since I work an office job next to my boss to have to be presentable)

All else fails hey just excuse yourself every 30 mins for a freshening and add eau de anything. Hey works for me. GL

I live in the most temperate country ever. I still get stanky feet. They were a non issue till recently when I replaced my leather shoes with ones that are evidently synthetic. I always get this issue with trainers but whatever. That's easier to work around. I once worked somewhere where my feet were so bad I ended up seeing a doctor, there is nothing wrong I just have stinky feet.

My advice is air your feet when you can. Don't let them stink in the first place. Wear odour eating insoles and stuff but that's just to buy you enough time to sit down and take them off before the stench develops (I had some cinnamon ones that masked the smell too). I work an office job so I sit around with my shoes off all day and no one complains because I stop them getting too stinky rather than deal with the stench. I do miss my old shoes and may seek some more leather ones soon.

put a light coating of baking soda in your shoes.

Baking soda is mildly alkaline, so it'll kill the smell-causing bacteria. baking soda also neutralizes smell, its why people use it to clean up puke.

I used to have stank feet and I used to think it's genetic cause my mother has them too, but I went vegan and my feet smell nice, so yeah, it's not genetic and mostlikely has to do with your gut.

Throw your shoes in the washing machine and then NEVER wear them with cotton socks again. Bacteria loves cotton so wear either 100% wool or some sort of synthetic like Coolmax.

Also, putting them in the freezer wont kill shit, the bacteria just goes dormant while its frozen. You need to wash with anti-bacterial chemicals.

baking soda and orange peels if you want a zesty trick
