My cousin was complaining about her son’s smelly shoes and stinky feet. She said he takes a shower every day but it doesn’t help so I told her about the wonders of tea tree oil. To rid your shoes of those awful smells you can put 20 drops of tea tree oil in a plant spray bottle with one cup of water. Shake well before you spray inside your shoes. Use the same spray on your feet when you get out of the shower. Let your shoes dry before you wear them and of course, dry your feet after the shower but you don’t need to spray so much on your feet that they get wet enough to dry them again.

If you don’t want to use the spray, there is another way to use essential oils to sweeten the smell of your shoes. Put 2 teaspoons ¬†of bicarbonate of soda into a small container, an egg cup from your last dozen eggs will work great. Add two drops of lemon, lavender, rosemary¬†or tea tree essential oil and mix it as well as you can, then sprinkle it into then shoes and leave it overnight. Tap the powder out in the morning and your shoes will smell as fresh as new.
