Even if you aren't an athlete, your shoes absorb odour over time. We've covered some ways of getting rid of the smell in the past, but try making your own deodorising powder at home as an alternative.

Housewife How-Tos recommends:
Combine 3 tablespoons bicarb soda, 1 tablespoon cornstarch and 5 drops of tea tree oil until thoroughly mixed. Sprinkle this liberally into your shoes after wearing and allow it sit overnight. The powders are both powerful damp- and odour-absorbers, and the tea tree oil's antiseptic properties will kill odor-causing bacteria. Just be sure to dump the powder out before wearing.
