Instructions

    • 1

      Keep your feet clean. Washing your feet helps get rid of the bacteria that cause the odor. To avoid drying out your feet, apply a lotion to your feet after washing them.

    • 2

      Soak your feet in a quart of water with 1/2 cup of kosher salt and 3 tablespoons of lemon juice for about 15 minutes. When you are done with the soak there is no need to rinse your feet, just be sure to dry them well.

    • 3

      Rub deodorant or anti-perspirant on your feet. The same bacteria that cause body odor cause foot odor, so the same products will work to control it.

    • 4

      Change your socks twice a day and make sure you don't wear the same pair of shoes every day. Wash you shoes, if possible, to eliminate the odor.

    • 5

      Sprinkle foot powder or talcum powder on your socks to help keep your feet dry, which will help eliminate the odor.
