  • I remember Dr. Oz saying to soak your feet in iced tea at room temp. to take away foot smell.

  • Put news paper in your shoes and soak your feet in luke warm water and vinegar (vinegar kills some types of bacteria and fungis). If that doesn't stop the smell light those shoes on fire. ;)

  • have u tried wearing PEDS? they are slip on socks that do not show and are comfortable to wear with flats ( I love them with MUDD shoes), they come in nylon, and also in cotton. If you're feet stink with every shoe you wear, it might mean something else, My FIL who is a medicine man, says very very stinky feet are a sign of problems of your kidneys and liver possibly, to drink a homemade tea made from parsley, tastes weird, but works, I've seen it

  • Ok, here' s the deal, my DH has FOUL smelling feet, REALLY bad, sour, stinky, fumigates the entire day I saw Dr. Oz on Oprah adressing this very problem...a girl called in with the same issue, so he told her to soak her feet in tea bag water for a week, she did and it worked. We tried it at home...just boiled some water and added about 6-8 tea bags, then cooled it down with some more water and put it in a pot for DH to soak his feet...he did this for maybe 15 minutes a night and in less than a week the smell was completely gone. Sometimes it creeps back, so we just repeat this process and it goes away again. He's had to do it maybe 3 times in the last 2 years. Oh, and the repeat "treatments" only take 2 or 3 days to work.
