Stinky Shoe Remedy #010 – What You Need is Some Heavy Metal


After reading ALL those ideas about stinky feet and shoes,I would have thought someone would have mentioned my suggestion. I can’t remember where I heard it, but it works. Start taking Zinc on a daily basis. I, as well as one of my sons had horrific problems with foot odor, and this did the trick. Give it a try.

Hmmm.  Zinc, eh?  I’ve certainly heard of taking Zinc but usually as part of a daily multivitamin.  So, to educate myself on the matter, I thought I’d do a quick search and see what I can come up with.  This brought me to an article appropriately titled, “The Benefits of Zinc“.   As expected, zinc does a lot of positive stuff, such as:  help maintain a healthy immune system, maintaining sense of taste and smell and facilitating DNA synthesis (that sounds important…).    There’s also a lot of different ways to take Zinc including lozenges, sprays and pills (of course).  I did not know that.  I also learned that alcoholics are often zinc deficient, and diarrhea also causes zinc loss.   Unfortunately, nowhere in the article does it mention zinc as a cure for stinky feet.  Sorry.  If someone finds evidence of this home remedy claim, please comment.  I’d love to see it!

In light of this, I have to give a thumbs down to using zinc as a cure for stinky feet.  Probably makes sense to take as part of a daily multivitamin for general health, though.

Looks like we’re left with Stuffitts Shoe Savers, as the better alternative to getting rid of those stinky shoes and feet.  I know these things work.  Use ’em everyday!
