How to get rid of unpleasant odor in sneakers

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 while fabric sneakers can be thrown in the machine and washed quickly, leather shoes can be a problem.

Experts reassure you that you can refresh your sneakers without washing them. Read the OBOZREVATEL article to find out how spices can help.

Life hack with spices:

Ordinary spices will come to the rescue - they will effectively get rid of the unpleasant odor.

The necessary ingredients:

1. Spices of your choice:

  • cloves
  • lavender
  • Rosemary
  • thyme
  • basil
  • star anise
  • lemon balm

2. An old sock.

It's very simple: take an old sock, fill it with your favorite spices, and leave it in your shoes overnight. And that's it. In the morning, there will be no trace of the unpleasant odor. The effect will last for 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 a shoe conditioner, a powder solution, or even dishwashing gel. Dirt should be removed with a dry brush. Then add a few drops of detergent to 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 sneakers, laces, and insoles - read the article.
