Removing Smell from Shoes

To get the smell out of shoes, I put a mixture of baking soda, baking powder, and cornstarch in a pair of cotton socks and stick in the shoes overnight. It works like a charm.

Crumbled newspaper works great too because of the carbon in the news print :-) Thanks for this extra tip :-)

Spraying with white vinegar also works.

I wipe out the insides of shoes with rubbing alcohol.

I buy the generic version of Lysol spray from the dollar store. I spray at night and let the shoes dry overnight. Sweet smelling in the morning.
