Q. After reading about soaking smelly feet in urine, I told my 23-year-old nephew about this unorthodox approach. He had suffered with this embarrassing problem for many years.
After soaking his feet one time the smell was gone. He has new respect for his old aunt.
A. Urine foot soaks are an old Army trick to get rid of athlete’s foot or odor. A mom once shared that after convincing her 17-year-old daughter to give this remedy a try it worked: “Her foot odor is completely gone!”
A wide variety of home remedies can be helpful for smelly feet. Urine may be one of the simplest and cheapest, but some people find it too gross. Other possibilities include soaking the feet in vinegar, Epsom salts, or a strong tea solution. You can learn more about achieving sweet-smelling tootsies in our FREE Guide to Smelly Feet.
