Stop sneakers from smelling

Date:21 September 2013 Tags:,

Here’s another use for those small packets of silica gel you find in electronic equipment boxes. My son had a serious problem with smelly takkies, and nothing seemed to work. As a last resort, I suggested he try the large packets of silica gel I had lying around: he placed one in each takkie and left it overnight – and the problem was solved. It seems that by removing all moisture from the shoes, you also kill the bacteria responsible for the smell.
