Fight Foot Odor With Coffee

This was one of the most interesting experiments I ever did before with my shoes and boots. I got curious one day. I kept buying foot powder that was too expensive and would cause allergic reactions to my skin, even if I'm wearing socks.



  • 2 pantyhose
  • scissors
  • ground coffee, no liquid (whatever flavour you want)
  • clean, dry small shovel use for gardening


So what I did was get two pair of pantyhose, cut down the middle. Take dry coffee (since I don't drink coffee anymore, choose which ever ever flavour you like ^-^). Use a clean small gardening shovel or pour at least 1 lb. of coffee into two of pantyhose legs in the kitchen in a dry sink (or whatever is dry.) Tie the top of each pantyhose leg into a knot. Place both of the filled pantyhose into your shoes, boots, etc., for about 24 hours or longer as you like. Afterward, throw away the filled pantyhose.

Harmless chemicals, less expensive, good aroma smell.

Excellent idea. I don't think there are many things on the earth that smell better than coffee.


Could the coffee grounds be poured into a garden space rather than thrown away?

I just put speed stick deodorant all over my feet and heels after each shower/bath. Not only do my feet never smell my feet and heels are moist and never Crack.
