Got Smelly Feet? Dr. Oz Has A Home Remedy For Taming Your Foot Odor

I saw this on Oprah

Dr. Oz had an at-home remedy for curing foot odor.

A girl on the show tried it, and they did a follow-up with her months later.

No more smelly feet!


Here’s how she did it…


Home Remedy For Foot Odor

Apparently, the secret for really smelly feet is to simply dry them out.

One of the best ways to do that is to soak your feet in tea.

Yep, Dr. Oz said to take some tea bags, place them in a bowl of lukewarm water.

You’re supposed to let your feet soak in that for 30 minutes each day for a week.

The tannic acid in the tea will actually tan your foot a little bit, which will dry it out … That’s helpful in reducing the amount of sweat, and the odor as well.Source

Dr. Oz said that other home remedies may also be worth trying, but for people with really smelly feet, sometimes the only way to fix the foot odor problem is to dry out the feet with tea like this.

    Tea is one of the treatment to foot odor; but placing newspaper inside of your shoes each time they’re worn and your shoes are placed in your closet; the INK absorb the ODOR from the shoes as well as from your feet when shoes are worn.  (refresh the newspaper every so often) 

    This method works great also when someone plays sports—basketball, football, just to name a few and etc.  A medical doctor of many years of practice introduced me to this safe and secure method.

    In my oppinion this can be accomplished much easier with cedarsoles… Cedarsoles are insoles made from antifungal cedar wood… just insert these insoles in your shoes and you will have a very long lasting effect after a couple of days.
