Baking soda

June 26, 2018

Have you ever put a box of baking soda in your refrigerator to absorb any bad smells?

It can work the same way for your feet! Sodium bicarbonate works by neutralizing the pH level of sweat. If you find that your feet sometimes smell like ammonia, it’s likely because the sweat is too acidic. Baking soda can help to balance out the pH and reduce the unpleasant scent. It also helps to get rid of bacteria that will decompose your sweat and make it smell bad.

There are two different ways to use baking soda to get rid of the stench. First, create a soothing foot soak following these simple directions:

Combine one tablespoon of baking soda with one quart of warm water.
If you need more water, add one additional tablespoon per quart.
Soak your feet in the solution for 15-20 minutes each night. For greater benefits, use a foot bath & spa machine.
Be sure to dry your feet thoroughly when finished.
Repeat every night for one week, or until smell starts to subside.

Additionally, you can sprinkle the insides of your shoes with baking soda to absorb any excess sweat and neutralize the smell.
