When your feet smell like a swamp feet.

Your feet can churn out half a cup of sweat each day.Such a bad news for your favorite shoes! because pesky bacteria are to blame for icky feet funk,make sure to scrub your feet with soap and water in the shower.Not enough to keep the stench away? especially in the summer? Wear more breathable shoes(hello flip flops!) How about yours or husband/boy friend/dad's feet? and what did you do to get rid of the smell?

I heard one time in a TV show when they interviewed a sales lady in the shoe section of a posh department store for the rich. They asked her what she can say about her job, she answered : "All feet stink." So she indicated that rich or poor, the same applies. (lol) . You're right though, the more enclosed your feet are- the more likelihood it would smell because of bacterial reaction. I use a foot powder and it helps. And of course, wash it everytime you have the chance. Washing is still the best way to personal hygiene to avoid odor formation.

You described my feet to a "T". I sprinkle baking soda in my shoes every other day to keep down the aroma. 15 years ago, my ex threw out a pair of British Knight shoes that I loved (so did my ferrets) that had to be put out on the back porch every night because they were so odoriferous.

Odor is caused by bacteria and they need a wet area such as your socks,so always use socks once.Also look at the bottom of your shoe inside(especially your favorite ones )probably it is not completely getting dry overnight. At night after shower fill a bucket with hot salty water and put your feet in it for about 20 minutes.Salt and heat will kill the bacteria Thank you for sharing,good day and cheers..

Well my hubby's feet are so nice to look. They are white and well taken cared off. No bas smells at all. I don't like dirty feet. I will not fall in love with a man who do not take care of his feet. This is one of the reasons I fell in love with him. He is very tidy, clean and fragrant, from the tip of his toe to the tip of his hair.

I would suggest using a foot soak and foot scrubs twice a day then adding a really nice strong decent lotion afterwords maybe even spray perfume on the feet as well stay away from soaks and shoes for awhile.

it's disgusting to have smelly feet! but, sometimes, it's unavoidable, especially if you are wearing closed shoes. there are sandal liners you can use to keep your feet smelling fresh, or you can use vinegar, the ultimate home remedy for smelly feet.

My feet smells only if I wear sneakers and socks regularly, otherwise I dont have that problem. I scrub them daily. Thanks for the info anyway.

Luckily my huddy's feet don't smell that bad. He actually cares about the smell more than i do if he ever senses any. It's good to wash the smelly feet with some herbal water. You might search some recipes. They might help.

I have read that if your feet stink, it means that you are lacking Zink! Try taking this supplement. See if it helps you! And yes it is very true that you have to wash your feet daily! Maybe use a anitbacteria spray for the insides of your shoes. I am sure that this will help you out A LOT! If nothing helps then call your Doctor! Mightbe symstoms of a underlaying illness that you are unaware of! Hope that this helps!
