Don’t Let Foot Odor Follow You Around! Here Are 5 Great Remedies for You to Try at Home.

Foot odor at home remedies

Foot odor? No problem. Soak your feet in a solution of 1/2 cup sea salt and 4–6 cups warm water for 15 minutes. Pat your feet dry, and be free of smelly feet.

Noticing that your feet smell is annoying. Noticing the expression on the faces of people who have noticed that your feet smell is a lot worse than annoying. Here’s how to avoid that awful humiliation.

What makes our feet smell?

Every surface of our body sweats, including the feet. When our feet are enclosed in shoes and socks, the sweat is retained, forming a perfect breeding swamp for the evil bacteria which create that atrocious smell that we all know too well.

What can we do about it?

Wash your feet at least once a day, and dry thoroughly, especially between the toes.

Don’t wear the same shoes on consecutive days. Alternating footwear gives your shoes a chance to thoroughly dry out, which makes it more difficult for those nasty bacteria to breed.

If your shoes are washable, wash them frequently. Let them dry completely before you wear them again.

Wear socks that breathe. Cotton is known for its resiliency and absorbency, which means that it retains moisture. Recent advances in fabric technology have created socks that efficiently transmit moisture from the foot to the surface of the sock, where it evaporates harmlessly, leaving your feet dry and bacteria free.
