We all get foul smelling shoes from time to time. Especially when we sweat, go to the gym and let those toxins out! The feet have some of the most pores on the body and they expel a lot of nasty smelling sweat. That is why our shoes get quite the riff every once in a while. The last thing you want to do however is to put chemicals in your shoes to mask the smell.

If you’re spraying something like Lysol in your shoes or any other chemical spray you’ll want to avoid that. This is because your shoes have some of the largest pores on your body and they will soak these chemicals up into your skin and ultimately into your bloodstream, which you do not want. Then your immune system and body has to deal with these foreign invaders, stealing valuable resources from the rest of the body to fight real threats.
