I know this might sound like a gross topic....but let's be honest. After the mileage we put on our dance shoes night after night, shoes get smelly!!

I've decided to share some tips with you from articles I've read to make your shoes smell fresh again:

-LIBERALLY sprinkle baking soda inside your shoes and inside your shoe bag
-Place shoes in a plastic ziplock, and put them in the freezer (or outside during winter). The cold will kill the bacteria
-Spray shoes with hydrogen peroxide
-Place fresh coffee grounds into an old pair of hosiery and place into shoes over night

Fabreeze also works!
I think Shoppers also sells some kinda of Arm and Hammer powder for smelly shoes.

I find that putting one Bounce sheet in each pair does the trick too, and leave a Bounce sheet in your shoe bag as well.

Thanks for the tip ladies! I'm actually going to try the freezer suggestion and then the bounce. My shoes are getting way to stinky!

Hi everyone,

So I tried the freezer trick and it really did work! The cold killed off all the stinky bacteria and my shoes don't stink anymore!

I didn't put mine in the freezer, but left them in the trunk of my car for a few nights... surprisingly, it worked!
