Athletic Shoes Still Smell After Washing

I went to Arkansas and I got my Jordan's all wet. I threw them in the washer, but it seems that the odor of the inside is just worse now. It's part of the shoe, if that makes any sense. If anyone has a way to get rid of the odor please help me.

You could try putting diluted disinfectant in them, washing again, by hand and spinning them in the washing machine. Then soaking the insides in a strong solution of water and bicarbonate of soda. Bi carbonate of soda is supposed to eliminate odour. Good luck!

You may want to put some charcoal inside some socks and put them in and leave them for a few days. Other people swear by stuffing them with news paper. I would try the paper first as it's pretty much free.

Get some Borateem and wash with that. It gets rid of nearly any odor.
