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.
