Oh my! I had no idea that little kids could create such smelly shoes! Seriously, I’ve implemented a no-shoes-off rule in the car because my son loves to take his shoes off, and when he does it’s as if Walter the Farting dog has made his way into our car Side Note – if you have kids and haven’t read that book, you should definitely check it out, it’s one of our favorites!
Recently I made up this shoe deodorizer that we spray in their shoes (hubby’s too) to help fight that nasty smell. I keep it right next to where we take off our shoes when we come in the house so that it’s within easy reach. My kids now think it’s quite fun to “de-stink” their shoes each night
- 2 cups distilled water
