Smelly feet-simple remedy
Tuesday, August 16, 2011
Boil 2 quarts of water, then steep 5 bags of black tea in it until the tea is cool enough to transfer to a basin (you can also divide the tea between 2 plastic shoe boxes). Soak your feet in the liquid for 10 minutes, then rinse and dry thoroughly.
Tannic acid, the natural astringent found in black tea, neutralizes and absorbs sweat, destroying the moist breeding ground for odor-causing bacteria.
