As we have learned before, salt can be used to eliminate odours. If you have a favourite pair of sneakers or boots that you love to wear all the time this might be a great option for you in order to avoid your shoes from becoming too smelly.

The best way to use salt for this purpose is to place it in a small bag (of cloth, or tissue) and then place the bag in the shoe regularly. You can do that every evening after coming back home, so the salt can work its magic during the night and you wake up to a pair of fresh shoes.

You can also try combining salt with baking soda as this might produce even better results.

Talcum powder is a substitute for baking soda and salt and is often used as part of commercial shoe cleaners.
