Tea is a Shoe-In: 10 Days of Tea Day 1

Two great ways to use tea to keep foot odor at bay.

By Colleen Walsh Fong

When I love a pair of shoes I wear them everywhere. So some of my favorites can result in an unpleasant experience for others when I remove them. Does this ever happen to you? Here are two ways you can use tea to reduce odor.

Put a few unused tea bags into each shoe after you take them off. Just leave the bags inside of your shoes until you wear them again. The tea bags will absorb the odor, keeping your shoes and your closet smelling fresh. Be sure to change the bags every couple of months.

But what about smelly feet? Brew some strong tea and pour it into a small tub. Put your feet in it. A 15-minute soak should soothe your feet and your family’s olfactory systems.

Try these tips and let me know how they work for you. Watch for Day 2 tips tomorrow, and stay fresh the Easy Way!

This is great, but since I am a plumber do you have anything that works on the outside smell:)
