35 Home Remedies for Foot Odor


Forget soaking your feet in vinegar, or tea or doing a rain dance....this is a no-brainer I figured out for myself! What causes foot odor? Bacteria. What kills bacteria? Antibiotic ointment like Neosporin (which you probably have in you med cabinet near the band aids for cuts and scratches!) Simply rub it all over your feet (nails too) like you are putting on lotion. Just a thin layer. Throw on some socks and go to bed. I guarantee your foot odor problem will be gone. It worked for me. I haven't had foot odor since, and only had to use it once!


I use degree deodorant. I put it under my armpits and between my toes where they stink. Works. What can I say.


Dead skin is what holds bad foot odor. If you get rid of the dead skin you get rid of the odor. My husband had really bad foot odor and we tried EVERYTHING and the only thing that worked was washing his feet with antibacterial soap and using a pumice bar every night before bed.


i have a remedy for foot odor,take 4 tea bags,place them in a pot,just like if you were going to fix tea.let the water get warm enough,let the tea bags sit for 15 mins.pour the tea into a large bowl,place one foot at a time in the bowl and let sit for 20 will not have no more foot odor problems for at least 6 months.


use a product with tea tree oil(kills fungus and smells nice) in it, rub it on feet and thoroughly on toes/nails after showering. i like a product by 'hollywood beauty' sold as a skin and scalp treatment in the african american beauty section of the pharmacy. DO NOT use straight tea tree oil. it will burn your skin.

Soaking your feet in vodka should kill any odor causing bacteria.


Stinky feet? Prepare a mixture of vinegar (NOT apple cider vinegar), and hot water, and soak feet for 5-10 minutes. Rinse; clean with soap to remove the vinegar smell.

The stink will be gone! Repeat each time you remove your sweaty shoes. Works everytime.


To reduce foot odor- Scrub feet daily with 3 pumps of Clorox Clean-up spray. Scrub for 1 inute with a household scrub brush,and rinse thoroughly. Allow foot to dry. Apply Mitchum deoderant to clean dry foot.


Try alum powder, put lotion on your feet(to keep the powder on your foot), then the powder, put socks on. Do this at night while you sleep, it just seems easier. This will sort of dry up your feet, so they don't sweat so much, your feet will not produce the odors that are so embarrasing and just plain stinky! Repeat for about a week and as needed. It works!
