Q: What's the best way to keep my feet from smelling?
A: Bathe your feet daily and scrub them gently and thoroughly between the toes. Use an antibacterial soap. Dry your feet completely.
Sprinkle the inside of your shoes with Odor-Eaters® Foot Powder. It absorbs more than talc and it works all day.
Try Odor-Eaters® Insoles in your shoes. They have super activated charcoal that absorbs wetness and bad smells. Wear well-ventilated shoes, preferably made from natural material they'll breathe better (and so will you). Also, avoid wearing the same shoes two days in a row. It's best to let them air out and dry.
Finally, wear socks made from cotton or some other absorbent material.

Q: My feet really smell a lot. Should I be worried?
A: Probably not. Odor-Eaters products can help you tame your foot odor. But if that isn't enough, you should visit a doctor. You may have Bromidrosis and should be under a doctor's care in addition to using Odor-Eaters products.
Q: Do smelly feet come from Athlete's foot?
A: No. Foot odor comes from a bacteria. Athlete's Foot is a fungus.
Q: Why do my feet seem to smell more with some kinds of shoes?
A: It's not your imagination. Some synthetic materials used in shoes like spandex, polyester, rayon and nylon make it harder for feet to breathe.
Q: I've heard that if I eat raw onions, my feet will smell. Is that true?
A: Foods like garlic, raw onions, fresh scallions and black pepper pass
their odor-bearing products through your bloodstream. So, voila! Your feet
smell like onion. Lay off that thick-cut onion with your hamburger.
