Stinky Boots - Page 2

post #31 of 41
If you can position your liners right after all the other treatments try a couple hours in full bright sun (if you get sun) for uv action. Alternatively a couple hours/overnight in the freezer.

These are tricks for stinky sandals. It may not be 100% but it may kill off some off the microbes the other stuff missed

Hydrogen peroxide is now available in a spray bottle.  It's cheap.

Buy one.  

 

Take the liners out of the shells, remove footbeds, spray everything, allow to dry.  
Repeat a second time if it doesn't do the trick.  You don't have to wash it out, either.

Just spray and wait overnight for things to dry.

 

Hydrogen peroxide does not harm fabric (or your skin), does not bleach the color out,

despite the name, and does an amazing job of removing body odor from anything.


I use it on my running shoes and hiking boots.  Works like a dream.

I bump because I discovered my boots now have this problem. These are the antique custom custom foam liners, that I left in the boots in the ski bag - road hard and put away wet.  I'm afraid to use harsh chemicals.  Season's over for me I'll try drying them out.

OdoBan, available at Home Depot. I think all of the varieties have eucalyptus, but the original scent is too strong for my nose. The Lavender scent is better.

I first got it for dog blankets and bedding, but wondered if the lingering scent was too much for my dog. Then I started doing one wash cycle with OdoBan, followed by a cycle with unscented laundry detergent.

Air does wonders but Mirazyme + air is better.

Again, LYSOL SPRAY. Its good enough to disinfect an operatory. You don't hide stinkfoot, you kill the bacteria and or fungus causing it. Nothing else listed here is bactericidal and fungicidal.

Hydrogen peroxide is both, and cheaper.  

Plus it doesn't have that awful Lysol smell.

You are incorrect sir. H2O2 is not a sterilizing agent and is not evdn considered the best wound disinfectant anymore. Any Lysol smell will be hone 24 hrs and the offendinb pathogens will be killed. I use Lysol daily as a doctor. It is still the best product on the market agsinst Hep, HIV, TB etc which btw are much nastier than stinkfoot. Your H2O2 will only work with complete immersion for WELL over an hour. Your kill is complete in 3 minutes with the Lysol.

Nature's Miracle for the boots, a weighted burlap sack for the cat.

If you use Nature's Miracle, or any of the enzyme type products, you should completely saturate the area and keep it wet for 48 hours to let the enzymes work. (Put it in a plastic bag and close it.) Then take it out and thoroughly dry it.
