As one of the biggest taboos out there, body odor is something that is extremely unflatering. If you
suffer from feet that could clear a room, this may just be for you. Overly sweaty, smelly feet, also
known as bromodosis, is usually caused by bacteria that grows easily in damp, warm conditions. This
can be caused by wearing the same shoes every day, stress and anxiety, warm weather conditions, and
not wearing socks. The most common sufferers are young teens, elderly people and those who play
sports. Sometimes this can’t just be washed off in the shower, so this home remedy for sweaty feet is
just what you need!
Home Remedy for Sweaty Feet
The goal is to reduce the bacteria and dry out the area to prevent the bad odor. This can be difficult since
the feet have over half a million sweat glands but it is not impossible.
1 part apple cider vinegar
2 parts water
3-4 tbsp baking soda
All you have to do it get a small bucket or medium sized bowl and mix in one part apple cider vinegar
and two parts water. Next, you add 3 or 4 tablespoons of baking soda and mix until it dissolves.
Soak your feet for about half an hour and then scrub with a soft loofah. Your feet will smell like vinegar
but only until you wash them thoroughly with soap and warm water.
You may repeat as needed throughout the week.
Another way to help reduce embarrassing foot odor and sweat, would be to keep your toe nails trimmed,
clean and disinfected. Most of the time we forget that nail hygiene is important as if not taken care of
properly, it can cause fungal infections and terrible smells. Try wearing more open, breathable shoes and
going for a pedicure every once and a while.
