Removing the Stank from your Shoes

published on 2007-05-22 in uncategorized

I was explaining this to a friend that suggested I blog it. I try to do it every 6 months with my shoes if they need or not.

  1. Put shoes in zip lock bag or a double layer of tied up plastic grocery bags
  2. Put in the freezer overnight (I do 2 days)
  3. If they still stink, pour baking soda inside the shoe and repeat
  4. Let them thaw out in the bag.

The reason this works: the bacteria inside your shoe that produce odor thrive in a warm moist environment. Freeze them and it will kill them out. The baking soda will absorb the smell, if it remains after the bacteria die.
