DIY Natural Shoe Deodorizers

shoe deodorizers

P-U!!!!……As many of you know, my husband Mike is a trail ultramarathoner.  After a hike or a run of his, Mike’s car can smell pretty darn rank- not to mention my house too when his shoes come inside.  He is ALWAYS running or hiking some mountain.   That means A LOT of miles run through mud, water, brush, and dirt. To combat this rather pungent problem, I made these simple DIY Shoe Deodorizers.  It took about 10 minutes to make 4 of these babies, and I am glad I did!  I used Blue Spruce and Purification Young Living Essential Oils for a scent to make the stink go away!  Thanks to these deodorizers, I can breathe in clean air in my home!
