Stinky Shoe Eliminator

Stinky Shoe Eliminator

Do you have an almost empty bottle of essential oil?  Don’t waste any. Use it to get rid of that stinky shoe smell.

Here’s what you do:

  • stuff a cotton ball or two into the essential oil bottle
  • put the cap back on
  • leave the cotton balls in there for a day or two — the cotton ball will absorb any leftover essential oil
  • after a couple days, pull the cotton ball out of essential oil bottle (use tweezers if needed)
  • insert essential-oil infused cotton balls into shoes (one into the toe area of each shoe)
  • leave them in shoes 1-2 days (at least overnight)
  • remove cotton balls and enjoy your clean & fresh-smelling shoes

Tea tree oil works great for this as it’s antibacterial and antifungal, but there are others that are as well that you can give a try such as peppermint, lemon, eucalyptus, lavender, or pine.

If you don’t have an empty EO bottle, you can simply add 2-3 drops of essential oil onto a cotton ball and place in the toe of shoes.
