With all the nooks and crannies, you simply don’t get rid of odor-causing bacteria - and that is what causes odor. You brush your teeth every day – wash your feet.
Most of you don’t need special deodorizers or powders. Here are a few simple steps.More after the break...
Step 2 - Spend time on each foot, getting in between toes, hitting every surface.
The rule of thumb for washing bacteria off hands is to wash for 30 seconds, or two verses of "Happy Birthday." Use three verses for your feet.
Step 3 - Wear cotton, silk or wool socks, as much as possible. Synthetics don’t breathe, and promote moisture and bacteria.
Step 4 - Put a dash of baby powder, or talcum, or maybe Gold Bond powder in your shoes when you take them off. The powder absorbs the moisture from the day’s wear, and from your feet the next time you wear them.
Step 5 - Lastly, if you still get odor – use a simple spray deodorant. Spray deodorant works by inhibiting bacteria growth in your armpits, it will do the same for your feet. The specialized foot deodorants aren’t usually necessary.
You’ll be surprised and delighted how well this works.
