Diatomaceous Earth: Deodorizing Shoes

old-shoes

One of the great strengths of Diatomaceous Earth is its absorbent, porous structure. The porous structure of DE allows it to absorb unwanted odors. By simply placing a small, open container of diatomaceous earth in the vicinity of a bad smell, you can both deodorize and prevent the smell from returning.

Read the instructions below for ways to use this natural deodorizer for your shoes.

You Will Need:

  • Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth
  • A Vacuum
  • 12-48 hours

Step 1:

Take the pair(s) of shoes in question and remove their insoles (if possible)

Step 2:

If you have removed the insoles (and they are not gel-based) take a small amount of DE and massage it into the insole.

Step 3:

Dust the inside of your shoe with 1-3 tablespoons of DE.

Step 4:

Leave your shoes (and insoles) alone for 12 to 48 hours.

Step 5:

Using the vacuum to help you, remove the DE from the inside of your shoes (and insoles).

Step 6:

Repeat as often as needed.
