When smelly feet were brought up at a recent podiatry appointment for a man, the doctor told the wife that feet have sweat glands too. Foot odor can be helped. He advised her to use spray deodorant on them. She bought deodorant and the smell subsided from the feet. The amount you use can be controlled if you need more or less. Washing your shoes often will also cut down on smelly feet.

Great, lot of people have smelly feet. Great Idea.
Great advice as usual, Gem. I'm so glad I have machine-washable slippers!
I've learned to make my own foot spray. I had finally found one that worked, and now I can't find it in a store anywhere. I prefer a pump spray because I can control where the spray goes. I like to spray between the toes and around the nails.
Foot Spray: rubbing alcohol, tea tree oil, peppermint oil or extract
I just mix these right in the spray bottle. I pour 3/4 bottle alcohol, then I add a few drops of the oils.
