Getting Rid of Smell in Tennis Shoes

What can you put in shoes to make them smell less? My grandson stays in his tennis shoes. I would like something that he could slip into his shoes at night, that would help get rid of the odor. Thanks.

I don't have smell troubles, but I put in Bounce Dryer Sheets every night into my shoes to keep them fresh. Works for me.

Try wadding up newspaper and slipping it in his shoes over night or even for a weekend. It should get rid of the smell

Baking Soda! It neutralizes odors like nothing, just sprinkle it in the shoes at night and tap it so it disperses around and then in the morning just shake the remnants in the trash.

It's bacteria or fungus inside the shoes that causes them to smell. A quick wash and a night in the freezer should kill the odor. Antibacterial foot spray or powder will help prevent it, but to get rid of the odor you must kill fungus.
