I’m just going to lay this out there for the entire internet to see. Here we go.
I have stinky feet.
Now you know all there is to know about me. Well, maybe not all, but that’s one secret out of the bag. What can I say? I like to wear my shoes without socks sometimes, and that makes for some stinky-stinks.
But from here on out, my shoes are going to smell sweet and fresh and my feet are going to have to deal with it!
How to Freshen a Stinky Pair of Shoes
Remember yesterday when I shared how to make a simple deodorizing pouch? I had an epiphany.
I could make some just the perfect size for my shoes and end all of this horrible, smelly stinkiness. And, so, my dearest bold ones, I did. I did just that!
For very detailed instructions on how to make this pouch, just visit this post.
But here are the basic instructions.
The only thing I did differently here is to cut my rectangle 20 inches long by 5 inches wide. That’s it!
But if you have small feet, measure the sole of your shoe and then double it for your length.
I folded the edges in the same way.
Here’s a little closer up look:
Then fold the rectangle in half, right sides together.
Sew a 5/8″ seam.
And zig-zag or overcast the edges.
Turn the pouch right side out and fill about half-way full with our Basic Deodorizing Mix.
Flip the top flap over, and then place in your stinky, old shoes. Or stinky new shoes. We don’t discriminate over here.
This works like nobody’s business. NO BODY’S!
Your poor stinky shoes will thank you ever so much.
And so will your feet. And your spouse.
And your dog, too, probably. If he’s anything like mine and wants to lick your toes.
Too much TMI for one post?
I have several more tips on how to have a naturally fresh home.
