Get rid of bad smell in your shoes

Sour toes or smelly shoes is a common problem that many people face, especially if they have an active lifestyle, this summer or spend a lot of time in tight shoes. Fortunately, there are several effective methods to combat this unpleasant problem. We'll dive into different strategies to keep your feet fresh and your shoes odor-free.

Use of Shoe Deodorant

One of the most effective ways to keep sour toes at bay is by using a shoe deodorant. Simple Goods Shoe Deodorant is specially designed to fight the bacteria and fungi that cause bad odors. Simple Goods Shoe Deodorant refreshes your shoes and effectively prevents bad odors. This mild and pH neutral Shoe Deodorant contains a unique formula added to nature's good bacteria – Probiotics, which immediately and effectively prevent and break down the source of bad odour. Probiotics will continue to clean and refresh your shoes for up to 72 hours. This product is easy to use and can quickly improve the smell in your shoes.

How does shoe deodorant work?

Shoe deodorant works by neutralizing odors and killing bacteria. Most deodorants contain antimicrobial ingredients that prevent bacterial growth. In addition, they absorb moisture, which creates a less favorable environment for the bacteria.

Use of shoe deodorant

  1. Shake the bottle : Before applying the deodorant, shake the bottle well.
  2. Spray inside the shoe : Hold the bottle approx. 15 cm from the shoe and spray evenly inside.
  3. Let the shoes dry : Let the shoes dry before putting them back on. This ensures that the deodorant has time to work effectively.

Handling shoes that smell

Although shoe deodorant is an excellent solution, it is important to also address the problem itself. Shoes can quickly start to smell, especially if they are worn daily without maintenance.

Tips to avoid smelly shoes

  1. Change shoes regularly : Avoid wearing the same shoes two days in a row. This gives the shoes time to air dry.
  2. Use breathable materials : Choose shoes made of breathable materials that allow air circulation.
  3. Use high-quality socks : Cotton or wool socks absorb moisture better than synthetic materials and thus reduce foot sweat.
  4. Clean your feet thoroughly : Good foot hygiene is essential. Wash your feet daily with antibacterial soap and make sure to dry them thoroughly.

Effective deodorizers for shoes

In addition to shoe deodorant, there are several other deodorizers that can help keep your shoes fresh.

Homemade deodorizers

  1. Baking soda : Sprinkle baking soda in your shoes overnight to absorb odors. Be sure to shake off any excess powder before putting your shoes back on.
  2. Coffee filter with lavender : Fill a coffee filter with dried lavender and place it in your shoes overnight. The natural aroma of lavender will help neutralize bad odors.
  3. Vinegar and water : Mix equal parts vinegar and water in a spray bottle and spray the inside of your shoes. Allow them to dry completely before using them again.

Commercial deodorizers

  1. Activated carbon : Insoles with activated carbon are excellent at absorbing both moisture and odor. Replace them regularly for optimal effect.
  2. Silica gel bags : These bags can be purchased at most sporting goods stores and placed in the shoes overnight to absorb moisture and odors.


Sour toes and smelly shoes can be a source of great frustration, but with the right methods and products, the problem can be effectively treated. By using Simple Goods shoe deodorant, maintaining good foot hygiene and using effective deodorizers, you can ensure that your feet and shoes remain fresh and odor-free.
