Stinky Feet - Ughhh

I need help….or my nose does J.  My DD dances 5 days a week.  She does not have to wear tights to most of her classes (all except ballet) and her dance shoes STINK!  They smell up the car, her bag and eventually the laundry room after we get home!  I cannot put anything in her dance bag because if I do they end up smelling like her stinky feet.  Any suggestions on what I can put in her shoes to help the smell?

try sprinkling them over night with baking soda... wash them first if you could. then let her put them on the next day just shake the baking soda out.

tell your daughter to wash her feet and put powder on them before wearing the shoes.  she might need those small socks that dont show with the shoes? I dont know what they are called.

Cut the foot from a pair of pantyhose. Fill the pantyhose with kitty litter, or use equal parts baking soda and litter. Tie the end of the pantyhose closed. Place these homemade scent absorbers in the shoes every night.

you could also place softener sheets in them when not wearing them and let overnight.

 Sprinkle baking soda inside your shoes at the end of each day. If you have sweaty feet that cause the odor, baking soda will quickly absorb the excess moisture. The soda also works as an odor neutralizer that safely pulls smell out of the shoes. Discard the baking soda the next day and repeat daily as needed. 

Sprinkle salt into shoes when baking soda is not enough. This typically works best for canvas and fabric shoes. Salt can over-dry leather shoes and other delicate surfaces. Sprinkle salt inside the shoes, let sit overnight and discard the salt the next day.

 i thought about baking soda, but does it get all over the place? and leave baking soda on their feet, shoes? would it cause her to slip when dancing?

Theatres use vodka.

Just spray it on anything that reeks and let it evaporate. It kills bacteria and removes stains without damaging fabrics.
