Three ways to get rid of smelly shoes!

Posted on by Codisto Collaborator

Nobody likes to have smelly shoes and we will let you in on a secret - not many people like smelling them either! It can be easy to just throw your shoes into the washing machine and let it do the work but this can end up doing more harm that good, destroying your ugg boots and other Ugg Express purchases. To make sure your shoes smell fresh without the washing machine, we have put together our top 3 cleaning techniques to help you keep your Ugg Express products clean.

Ugg Boot Cleaning Spray and Detergent

When it comes to cleaning your ugg boots and leather shoes in particular, it's best to use leather-specific products that won’t damage the materials. Our Ugg Boot Cleaning Spray & Detergent features Australian tea tree oil and has anti-bacterial properties, perfect for removing the bacteria that causes odour. Spray the formula on and inside your shoes and leave them to dry completely before wearing or storing away.

Essential Oils

Essential oils, such as tea tree oil, peppermint oil and lavender oil, are fantastic for reducing the amount of odour coming from your shoes. The best way to use essential oils without directly dropping them onto your shoes is through cotton buds or old newspaper. Drop oils on the cotton buds and paper and stuff your shoes with them for the night – not only will they leave your shoes smelling fresh but they will also absorb additional moisture and the bacteria that it creates.

Dry Out Your Shoes

As mentioned previously, one of the main reasons your shoes are generating an odour is because they are moist and this is allowing bacteria to grow. One of the best ways to reduce the smell without using any additional product is letting them dry out. Place your shoes in a well-ventilated area and out of direct sunlight, letting them dry completely. Although this may not eliminate all odours, it will definitely reduce them.

We hope that these simple odour-reducing techniques work for you. If you would like to purchase our cleaning spray and detergent, you can find this product online or in store – it is definitely worth investing in!
