Happy Wednesday! Since I just showed you all my closet, I thought I’d share diy shoe deodorizers with you. It’s a good fall project with sandal season coming to a close. They are a lot less expensive than over-the-counter products. And prettier.
I mix equal parts of baking soda and cornstarch. Why baking soda? Well because it’s a natural deodorizer, has antibacterial properties and known to help cure athlete’s foot. Why cornstarch? Because it absorbs moisture. (It’s also the best for diaper rash. Been there, done that.) You can also add 20 drops of Tea Tree essential oil per cup of mixture. It is antibacterial, antiviral and a fungicide. And it just smells good!
Mix it all up real good. I used a whisk to make sure the oil got dispersed well.
Cut some squares out of a light weight cotton. My squares are between 8 and 10 inches. I also cut some pieces of ribbon to tie, but you can use twine.
I put a heaping tablespoon of the mixture in the center of a square. Pull up the corners, and twist the ball of deodorizer.
Tie on your ribbon and you have a shoe deodorizer!
If you have some leftover mixture, put it in a small bowl and set it in your closet. It will smell real nice.
I sure hope this was helpful.
