Whether visiting friends or family: in most situations, smelly shoes do not give the best reception. Feet quickly start to sweat, especially in lined shoes. There are simple means that quickly ensure a pleasant smell in the shoes.

Odor-forming fungi and bacteria are the main causes of unpleasant shoe odors. Especially in sturdy, thick shoes, the microorganisms multiply particularly efficiently through heat and damp sweat. Especially in sports shoes, fungi and bacteria enjoy large reproduction. If the breeding ground is withdrawn from the bacteria, the unpleasant smell in the shoes also comes to an end.

That is why we present four positively rated products against shoe odor in the following table. In addition, we would like to introduce you to some home remedies that also help against unpleasant smells from shoes.
