Everybody more or less experiences with bad shoe odor. It's a common problem, particularly in tropical countries. No more worry. Here is a good and simple tip to solve the problem. Just put some baking powder inside the shoe. That's all. No more odor. You can apply this method for ash-tray also. No more cigarette odor and smoke.

Cool! Thanks for sharing this! Baking soda is recommended for refrigerator odor too, so it's not surprising that it works for shoe odor. It's really quite a marvellous little chemical! Do you live in a tropical country? Have you actually tried using baking soda for the things you recommended? I'm just curious to know if you really did get it to work!!

Good to know! I always want to know if someone has tried something! That way when I recommend it, I won't just have to say it worked for me alone!

Hi Ronimas and thank you for sharing this! You always have these good tips for us that even make us save money! Here is another tip for you. I don't know where I read it or if it works. Put your shows in the refrigerator overnight and the odor will be gone in the morning. It's a silly method of course and I wouldn't do it. But if it really works one can put their shoes in a very well sealed container or plastic bag. I wouldn't do it because I will not be able to eat the food that's in there. But I wrote this tip just in case somebody would be interested.
