If you’ve already tried baking soda, newspaper, and etc. to get rid of the odors in your shoes or work boots and they have not worked here is something else to try. Place the offending footwear, bagged or unbagged, in a freezer overnight. This works because the bacteria that causes the odor can’t survive in below freezing temperatures so the root of the problem is killed. Just remember to take them out of the freezer early enough to warm up if you’re planning on wearing them the next morning!!
