    Hi everybody, I'm wondering if anybody has any suggestions for food odor. Everyday after a long day of work I go home take off my shoes and my food smells like somebody died in it. I don't know if it's because I wear it too much or if it is just the shoe but it's becoming quite a wretched smell.

    foot odour?

    If you mean food odour and you work at a restaurant, its inevitable. I was a waiter for 2 years and food gets in the sole, and walking on floors that constantly have food crushed into them makes the smell of rotten food leech into the rubber. you cant really do anything about it

    Wash you feet and wear thin wool socks. If that doesn't do it, try various foot powder and changing your socks midday.

    If you are wearing the same shoes every day, don't. Give them a chance to air out. Alternate between at least two pairs of shoes.

    You can also get charcoal inserts for your shoes that help by absorbing odor.

    Found some more ideas here.

    The deodorants I have been buying lately say that they can be used on the feet also.

    Anthony's Logistics, Sharp's Happy Me, The Crystal.

    I've never tried it but it sounds interesting.

    I normally use foot powder if needed.

    The blue bottle, it's the best, I powder my feet when they get sweaty, and put some in my shoes every once and a while.

    Really? I just applied for a job at Papadaux. I've got an interview on tuesday, so my feet might constantly smell like sea food.

    it wont be so much your feet, as the actual shoes/sole of the shoe

    I've used spray deo on my feet before. But I've heard that if you really have a bad problem with perspiration on hands, feet or pits that you can have a dermatologist do botox injections. Maybe you won't have any wrinkles on your feet either!

    Two things, pure tea tree oil, and leather soles shoes. Put the tea tree oil on the bottom of your feet each morning before you put on your shoes/socks. After a few weeks of that you will not have any problems and won't need the oil anymore. I've also found that rubber soled shoes or shoes with synthetic insoles really exacerbate the problem.

    Hi everybody, I'm wondering if anybody has any suggestions for food odor. Everyday after a long day of work I go home take off my shoes and my food smells like somebody died in it. I don't know if it's because I wear it too much or if it is just the shoe but it's becoming quite a wretched smell.

    Whether the odor is from your feet, shoes, or a combination thereof . . . a solution of sorts was posted here in the weeks leading up to the Great Server Crash early this year.

    One of SF's shoe-focused members (who shall remain anonymous) shared the results of an ongoing experiment in shoe bleaching with other members in a series of threads. A dilute bleach solution that, as a side-effect to getting rid of the "hideous" original John Lobb color, also removed the pesky aroma of fine leather from some John Lobb shoes. This might just do the same for not only your prandially permeated pumps, but your funky feet as well. In fact, to save some time, you might consider just dunking the whole mess into a bucket of the six percent solution when you get home from the restaurant. Why bother even removing your shoes?

    Clearly, the answer was awaiting you here until the aforementioned server crash! Your feet, your family, and the restaurant diners will be forever grateful to Style Forum. [​IMG]

    Talc. Very seventies, very unfashionable, very good stuff.

    I use the baby talc myself. Smells great.
