How to get rid of unpleasant sneaker odor

Even the most expensive and high quality shoes are prone to unpleasant odors, especially in summer when there is literally no escape from the heat. And if the fabric sneakers can be thrown in the machine and quickly washed, with leather shoes there are problems.

Experts reassure: it is possible to refresh sneakers without washing. Read how spices can help in this - read in the article OBOZREVATEL.

Lifehack with spices

Common spices will come to the rescue - they will effectively get rid of the unpleasant smell.

The necessary ingredients:

1. A spice of your choice:

  • cloves
  • lavender
  • rosemary
  • thyme
  • basil
  • horsetail
  • melissa

2. An old sock.

In fact, everything is very simple: take an old sock, fill it with your favorite spices and leave it in your shoes overnight. That's all. In the morning of an unpleasant odor will not remain a trace. The effect will last more than one day, and the procedure can be repeated if necessary.

By the way, if you do decide to wash your sneakers by hand, it is better to do it with a soft brush. As a detergent, you can use shoe conditioner, powder solution or even dishwashing gel. The dirt should be removed with a dry brush. Then a few drops of detergent should be added to the warm water. A paste of baking soda and water will get rid of dirt and odor, but it can only be used for light-colored shoes. How to properly wash running shoes, shoelaces and insoles can be found in this article.
