When your shoes start smelling, there is a bacteria overgrowth in your shoes that cause bad odor. Also, since inside the shoes is the great environment for fungus to grow, it is important to clean it once in a while.
There are various ways to clean the inside of shoes, but today we will talk about one that can easily be done at home.
What we need:
A small bowl
Baking soda or antifungal/antibacterial spray
How to clean:
Remove insoles of the shoes if possible
Mix vinegar with water (1 vinegar : 5 water) in a small bowl
Wipe the insoles with the vinegar and water solution using a sponge
Wash the sponge with clean water
Use the sponge to wipe inside of the shoes, and dry completely
Make sure the insoles are completely dry before putting back in
In addition to that, put a sprinkle of baking soda to remove an unpleasant smell each after wearing the shoes. You can also use an antifungal/antibacterial spray to disinfect and deodorize your shoes.
