Greener Cleaners: Smelly, Dirty Shoes
Tip #4: Deodorize and shine your shoes.
To make the surface of your shoes gleam, use a combination of olive oil and lemon juice. If your sneakers emit an offensive smell, Livestrong suggests using arrow root starch, potato starch, or corn starch and baking soda. Other sites suggest spraying your shoes with strong black tea so that tannin — a compound known for its leather-making and odor-busting properties — can suck up the odors. Just make sure you have dark shoes or don't mind staining the insides of them.
