Sprinkle a spoonful on the soles of each shoe and leave them for 12 hours.
Baking soda has the magic power to absorb moisture and eliminate bad odours.

Method3: Fruits in your boots

As well as being excellent for our health, fruits never stop surprising us with their possible diversions.
So, just peel and place the skins of orange, lemon or grapefruit in your shoes (of course after enjoying the fruit) and leave them until the morning…

Method4: Talc Powder

Talc, or talcum, is a clay mineral, composed of hydrated magnesium silicate
Spray talcum powder inside your football boots. Cheap and very efficient, the product can be found in any pharmacy or supermarket.

Method5:The second sole

It is better to have two pairs of trainers: one for training, the other for competition.
Why is that? To give them time to air out and get rid of bacteria and bad odours.

Method6: Nails

Let’s go straight to the point of this method: the nails.
There is no need to make them into witches’ claws. Because, in addition to hurting you, they are real traps for bacteria.
When we let them grow too much, our fingernails become “catchers” and need to be cleaned often. The same goes for our feet. Except that they are enclosed in shoes…
Imagine. Cutting them regularly (not too short so as not to hurt yourself, as they protect your toes) is, therefore, a routine to be integrated into your hunt for bad odours
