SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) - Your shoes stink? Here’s how to remove that odor.

To Remove Odor, Try One of These:

- 3% HYDROGEN PEROXIDE: Put the peroxide in a spray bottle (or put a sprayer on the peroxide bottle) and spritz the inside of the shoes, and let dry. This acts as a disinfectant killing bacteria.

- TEA TREE OIL: This is an anti-bacteria, anti-microbial. It is great for fungal infections like athlete’s foot. - Dilute 1 part Tea Tree Oil with 2 parts water. Spray the inside of the shoes and let them dry completely before wearing them.

- USE ANY ENZYME PRODUCT TO REMOVE THE SMELL: This product is a natural enzyme that will digest the protein in the sweat. Spray it in well and allow it to dry before wearing. This is available at Queenofclean.com and works great on all pet stains and people stains.

Linda Says: Shoes stink because of bacteria that breed in the warm moist environment in your shoes.
