DIY Stinky Feet Foot Soak

A great foot soak to deodorise the stinkiest of feet.


* 2 tablespoon dried sage

* 2 tablespoon dried rosemary

* 2 tablespoon dried thymme

* 2 tablespoon dried peppermint leaves ( tea )

* 1 tablespoon lemon peel coarsely grated

* 1 1/2 cups apple cider vinegar


1. Make the foot soak by following the directions for making a herbal vinegar

2. Add 2 tablespoons of your herbal vinegar to a basin of warm water and soak your feet for 10 -15 minutes before towelling them dry.

NOW I am not 100% sure of this trick but I have heard of it before. You can alternatively soak your feet in a basin of Coca Cola and it will eradicate stinky feet too. I myself have never tried it as you wont get me anywhere near Coca Cola  I have seen what happens to a raw piece of meat that has been sitting in Coke for a couple of days so it would not surprise me at all  if it does in-fact work – if anybody reading this has tried it before I would LOVE to hear your feedback on this.

    I’ve heard to soaking your feet in tea helps with foot odor. The tannic acid dries your feet and reduces sweating. So maybe that’s the same idea behind the cola theory.

    I have really stinky feet, and I had a doctor tell me to soak my feet in strong tea once a week to use the tannic acid to dry my feet and reduce sweating (as mentioned above).

    I haven’t tried coke, but I think I might this week some time and let you know if I see any difference.

    Vinegar and water soaks are recommended to clear up athlete’s foot. Follow them with an application tea tree oil. I would not try the Cola soak, as the sugar might encourage any foot or nail fungus present.
