It was a long day of play or work, and now your shoe insides smell like dead fish! Here’s what to do…

To deodorize a pair of shoes, put half of a scented fabric-softener or dryer sheet in each shoe and leave it overnight.

You can also place your shoes in a plastic bag (either separate or together) and put them in the freezer overnight. The cold temperature will kill any odor-causing bacteria. (Talk about cold feet!)
