Losing the socks as the heat returns

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

Spring is here and as the temperature continues to rise many will get the urge to break out the Top-Siders or loafers and go sockless to celebrate the return of the sun.  This is all well and good and a valued observance in preparation for the summer but the consequence can be shoes and feet that will peel paint.

So how do we enjoy the weather without repelling those around us?  Here are a few simple things you can do to:

First, wash your feet.  When your in the shower give your feet a good scrub.  This will help keep the bacteria that causes foot odor to a minimum.  Additionally you can rub a little hand sanitizer on your feet to help kill off the stink causing bacteria.

Second, use an antibacterial foot/shoe spray.  Use this on your shoes.  When you take them off at the end of the day give them a good spray and let them sit.  When morning comes and its time to put them back on they will be fresh and ready.

Third, cedar shoe trees.  After giving your shoes a spray insert cedar she trees into your shoes.  The wood will help absorb moisture and the cedar oils will help add a nice scent to the shoes.

If you follow these tips smelly feet won’t be a symptom of your summer because success shouldn’t stink.
