This summer we took a family vacation, driving through Virginia visiting historical sites and throwing in the Great Wolf Lodge to help keep Gray entertained. We spent a fair amount of time in the car. On day one, we’d been in the car maybe 30 minutes when I kept getting a whiff of some simply awful smell. It turns out that it was my son’s sandals…..and feet!
I remembered this tip we once shared about dryer sheets and smelly shoes:
Smelly shoes? Insert a dryer sheet in the offending pair and let it sit overnight.
We bought some dryer sheets (and some odor solving foot powder). We placed the dryer sheets in his shoes and started using the foot powder. Problem solved. When we got home from vacation, we sort of fell off the wagon. And the problem returned. The solution works but you have to stick with it. Every night we use the powder, and every Friday I put dryer sheets in his shoes overnight. That has done the trick. No more Stinky Feet Pete.
