Stinky feet are unpleasant, both for you and others who are around you. Many people think it’s an inevitable side effect of sweating. Actually, it is caused by bacteria on your skin that feed off of moisture. So, if you can control these bacteria, then you can save yourself (and others) from the stench of your feet.
The below foot soaks not only prevent stinky feet, but are also a great way to pamper your feet after a long day on them.
1. Simple Epsom Salt Foot Soak
To neutralize odor, sooth aching feet and replenish your body’s magnesium levels, use epsom salt.
2. Sage and Rosemary Soak
Sage is great for preventing stinky feet, as it has antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties, while rosemary is also antibacterial and antifungal. Both of these herbs are also astringent, which works to minimize sweat production from your feet.
3. Bubbly Baking Soda and Citrus Soak
Baking soda works to control odor, kill bacteria/fungus, and even helps soften your skin, while lemon works as an astringent and provides a great scent.
4. Very Vinegar Soak
While vinegar provides a smell that doesn’t please everyone, it’s a great option for getting rid of odor as it makes an acidic environment that makes it hard for bacteria to survive.
5. Black Tea Foot Soak
This is popular natural remedy for preventing stinky feet. And while it may seem unusual, people swear by it.
