Smelly Boots

I wanted to know if anyone has any good remedies for smelly boots...

I have my nice Dubarry Boots, and due plenty of use, and a few breeches they have got to the point where they knock me sick when I remove them.

Anyone got any good, proven, products or old wives tales for this annoying problem.... other than never removing them..

How do I use it? I don't want to damage the boots, or be left with white power coming out of them for years to come.

Put a couple of teaspoons full in, give em a good shake to cover the insole, leave overnight and shake the excess out. .. repeat as necessary and regularly.

Kippers mask the odour well when left for a few days.

Dive booties suffer the same malady. Getting them dry inside goes a long ways in knocking down the stench; rig up something to get good airflow overnight after use.

Febreze (kills odors) or a disinfecting spray (like they use on rental bowling shoes; kills the microbes that cause the smell) or deodorizing foot powder (of which the main ingredient is likely the baking soda that Sibbo mentioned) are options as well.

.. filty git .. I'd 'ave 'im .. or my spaniel would have meted out the appropriate justice


That said .. for some wet suit boots I still have .. I just chucked some bleach in them every so often, and rinsed them out and theve been good for 12 odd years
