No one likes having stinky feet.
It can also be pretty embarrassing to have to take off your smelly shoes around other people.
Contrary to popular belief, it’s not actually sweat that makes your feet smell, but the bacteria on your skin that feed off of moisture.
If you can control these bacteria, your feet will be squeaky clean and fresh-smelling.
These soaks feel great after a long day on your feet.
There’s nothing better than a little pampering mixed into problem-solving!
