Having stinky shoes can ruin and pair of shoes because you will never want to wear them! Gym shoes are the worst because when you sweat the bacteria starts to grow in the shoe and start to get stinky very quickly! I wish I had this recipe a year ago when my husband complained about a pair of his shoes, we tried everything and could not get the stink out so we had to throw out his favorite shoes! It was a sad day! Instead of throwing your shoes out try this recipe using lemon essential oils!
Stinky Shoe Refresher Recipe
1 pair of old socks or nylon pantyhose
1/4 cup baking soda
10 drops lemon essential oil
6″ twine or string
Cut off the foot portions of the pair of old socks or pantyhose. Add 1/8 cup of baking soda and 5 drops of lemon essential oil to the toe area of each. Tie closed with twine or string.
Add to shoes overnight or until you wear them again. Add 5 drops of lemon essential oil to the baking soda mixture inside each refresher before each use to keep the fragrance fresh.
