Default Lemon Shoe Deodorizer

Eliminate odor from your athletic or running shoes with this lemony deodorizer


cup baking soda
cup cornstarch
One storage container with cover
About 15 drops of lemon essential oil


1. Combine the baking soda and cornstarch in the container

2. Add the lemon essential oil and mix well. Cover and let it sit overnight to blend and absorb the fragrance.

3. Sprinkle some of the deodorizer (a little goes a long way) into your athletic or running shoes each night (or at least 4 hours before wearing them). Shake out shoes before putting them on.

4. Repeat once a day until shoe odor is reduced. It may take several treatments to fully eliminate odors.
