The bad smell in the feet is not a very pleasant situation that we say, and on certain occasions, it can be a reason for mockery or something of which we can be ashamed. Although we don’t always have control over its causes, we can end the problem
Like most bad body odors, foot odor is caused by bacteria, so we must eliminate them with proper hygiene, a change of diet, and the support of some home remedies.
1. Alka Seltzer could help
Dissolve two pills in warm water and put your feet in it for 15 minutes. This helps you because the baking soda balances the PH of the feet, eliminating the bad smell. You can do this twice a week.
2. Some of the magic baking soda
In a bucket mix 1/4 cup of baking soda, one liter of water, and the juice of two lemons. Soak your feet for 15 minutes and rinse with cold water. You can repeat this twice a week.
3. A little lemon
After bathing you can pass half a lemon over your feet, let it dry, and then wear your shoes as usual.
4. Vinegar instead of talc
Mix one liter of water and one cup of white vinegar, soak your feet for 15 minutes. The acidity of the vinegar kills the bacteria that can cause a bad smell. Repeat the process only once a week.
5. Jelly, for dessert or shoes?
Another little known but very effective patch is to dip the feet in gelatin. Make jelly in the usual way and after it sets put your feet in it for 20 minutes.
6. A relaxing bath
Soak your feet in a container with water and some of the following ingredients: black tea, vinegar, or table salt, keep them submerged for 15 minutes, and then dry them well.
7. The aroma of a ginger root
Take a ginger root, grate it, and put it in a bowl with water until it boils 10 or 15 minutes. Strain the mixture with a coffee filter, and then massage your feet with the liquid obtained.
8. Cat sand
Literal. Place some cat litter inside a cloth bag or sock and let it rest inside your shoes at night.
