Mama Tenza! Mi a beg you help me wid dis please! My daughter is 8 years old and her foot dem smell like a big man weh drive truck! Her foot dem smell bad man! Mi wash her socks and sun dem, all iron dem suh nuh germs nuh cause dem fi smell, kiss mi teet! Dat nuh wuk. Mi fraid a powder cause dem seh dat gi cancer, wah mi fi do now?                                         Smelly Shelly’s Mommy

Mommy! It’s going to be fine calm down. What I would suggest, firstly is to ensure her feet are dried properly before she puts on her socks and shoes. Bear in mind that some shoes are made from materials that do not allow our feet to breathe properly, so smelly feet aren’t our fault sometimes.

Anyway, try these routines and see what happens.

  • After properly drying feet, sprinkle baking soda in the socks, shoes and rub it on her feet (Wear cotton socks).
  • After taking the shoes and socks off, wash feet in warm, soapy water.
  • Dry them properly then exfoliate with a lime and salt scrub or wash with a cinnamon and sugar scrub, then rinse in warm cinnamon, lemongrass or tea tree oil infused water.  Need help to make the feet scrubs, send Mama Tenza an email to Livewell Putus!
