number of home remedy solutions. Good luck in your fracas with foot odor!
Rub Your Feet
You would think everyone would know this, but
you would be surprised at the number of people who
ignore proper foot care. Regular foot washing,
sometimes more than once a day, is paramount in
reducing smelly bacteria. Use antibacterial soap. After
all, it’s “anti” bacterial! Dry your feet thoroughly after the
wash. Remember, bacteria love moist environments and

your shoes and socks when you can. Trust me when I tell you that it is better

Your feet smell for one simple reason – bacteria. Bacteria love to reproduce and
multiply in warm, moist environments. They emit a foul odor when growth goes
unchecked and it is your perspiration and sweat that create the perfect climate for
bacteria. Perspiration normally dries quickly and the bacteria die off, but shoes and
socks prevent your foot sweat from evaporating away. The result is foul, wretched
and unwanted stinky feet. Fortunately, you can get rid of foot odor rather easily.
