DIY Stinky Shoe Spray

We all have that pair of shoes or that person in our family who has a closet full of stinky shoes! I am going to teach you today how to make a simple non-toxic stinky shoe spray.  You will be so pleased with how well it works.

The best part is the number of ingredients is so minimal, and the essential oils we will use will help deodorize, disinfect and fight the nasty bacterias and fungus that make the shoes stink in the first place!

What you will need:

Witch Hazel: it is naturally antimicrobial and antibacterial (I buy mine at the local health food store)

Distilled Water: (can be found at the grocery store)

Essential Oils: We will be using doTERRA Purify and Melaleuca for our spray.  Don't have doTERRA oils yet?  Click here to learn more about getting some!

2 oz Spray Bottle: This is a great size to be able to get inside of the shoe and spray.  (here are the ones I use)

Time to Make It:

  1. Fill bottle halfway with witch hazel
  2. Add essential oils: 5 drops Purify, 5 drops Melaleuca (you can add some wild orange or lemon to lighten up the scent if you don't like these two combined)
  3. Fill the bottle almost to the top with distilled water (make sure to leave enough room for the spray top
  4. Shake well and spray into shoes
  5. Allow time to dry
  6. Repeat as needed

That's it!!!! You now have your own all natural stinky shoe spray! I hope it helps make your home and shoes smell a little bit brighter :)
