Q. A reader was worried about her husband’s stinky feet. The sure fire way to cure this is to soak his feet in a strong tea solution. Boil a quart of water, add 6 or 7 regular tea bags and let them steep. Use that to soak the feet.

I write from experience. My feet also smelled, despite bathing, Odor-Eaters® and foot powder. The tea will kill the smell.

A. Tannin in tea can reduce perspiration, which often contributes to odor.
