1. Wash Your Feet After Having Your Bath Every Day In Warm Water

Although you include your feet during your usual bathing, it’s important to pay special attention to your feet by washing them separately in warm water. Scrub thoroughly with a sponge around and in between your toes. After that, dry them thoroughly including in between the toes.

2. Tea Bag Soak.

After washing, employ one of the soaking methods, like the tea bag method. Soak your feet in strong black tea for thirty minutes. Use at least three regular sized tea bags. Boil for fifteen minutes, and pour into a small bowl. Add little water to make the tea cool enough to soak your feet in. Soak them for about thirty minutes. Because it is acidic, the tea will have an antibacterial effect that can reduce foot odor or stinky feet.
