No one wants to have smelly feet or smell someone else’s, but this is the reality for many people who wear shoes that don’t have good air circulation. As we approach closed-toe shoe season, eliminating foot odor is a must.
Bacteria grow in damp, warm places, like in between your toes! The bacteria stick to feet and shoes, causing an unpleasant odor or worse, can lead to Athlete’s Foot. If you or someone you know suffers from smelly feet, do them a favor and make this foot powder to provide cool, odor-eliminated relief to smelly feet.
