DIY Shoe Deodorizing Powder {with essential oils}

Stinky shoes?  No problem.  We all have them.

Foul-smelling gym shoes, pungent boots, malodorous flats… yep, stinky shoes happen to everyone.

My family has them, too.

Which is why I’m so thankful for this easy, 3-ingredient natural solution to my stinky-shoe woes.  Simply mix, shake, and sprinkle.

It naturally removes odor and stink from bacteria.  It disinfects and deodorizes.  It also helps to prevent new shoe stink.  It’s kinda like a shoe “deodorant”.

 

What’s in shoe deodorizing powder?  Just 3 ingredients

  1. baking soda – deodorizer
  2. cornstarch or arrowroot powder – absorbs moisture
  3. essential oil – naturally removes odor and stink from bacteria

How to use shoe deodorizing powder to get the funk out of stinky shoes

  • Sprinkle deodorizing powder in shoe.
  • Move shoe back and forth to spread powder around shoe – try to get the powder around the entire footbed of the shoe.  Be sure to get the powder down in the toe box.
  • You can wear the shoes right away or let the powder sit in the shoes overnight.  Shoes will be fresh and clean in no time!
  • Shake out excess powder into the trash.
  • Have super stinky shoes?  After putting the powder in the shoes, seal the shoes in an airtight bag or container.  Leave them in there at least overnight, and then shake out the access powder.
