Any recommendations for destinkifying smelly running shoes? Somebody in my family only brought running shoes with us and went out in the rain. Shoes got wet. They are very odiferous. Not bad enough to go out and buy new shoes but dang. Any advice is welcome.

Look at charcoal bags on Amazon, they do wonders.

Baking soda in each shoe would help. Iím assuming you already ran them through the washing machine?

Wash unless they have to be worn now.

Baking soda inside and maybe put in the sun.

Put each shoe in a gallon size plastic storage bag and zip it closed. Then put in the freezer for a few hours to kill the smelly bacteria. Works perfectly.

Wipe the shoes with the a cloth soaked in Hydrogen peroxide.

When you put them in the freezer as 1956BD suggests, put a little baking soda in each shoe.

I take a small spray bottle and mix half water and half rubbing alcohol. I spray them and let them dry. It kills the bacteria that is causing the smell. Works well on the kids sandals

I agree with 1956BD. Ds had smelly baseball cleats. I tried baking soda, fabreeze, dryer sheets, and nothing worked. I found the freezer idea online. It worked!

I have done baking soda, febreeze, those little shoe balls, spray deodorant, voodoo and spells on dd running shoes, cleats, and gloves. They're still deadly.

I'm no help.
