You actually have to SCRUB your FEET...just standing in soapy water doesn't actually wash off the bacteria between your toes...if you have stinky feet, this will most likely fix your issue...

I didn't learn this till THIS YEAR, I'm 37, I've always had some stinky feet and never knew that i actually had to bend over and scrub my toes and bottoms of my feet.. i now no longer have stinky feet!! lol so basic but also just never occurred to me because i always thought the soapy water i was standing in was enough..

my wife and i were talking about shower habits to our teen one day and she mentions to 'scrub those feet!' and i looked at her and was like, 'what do you mean? she's already in soapy water, the feet get cleaned automatically.' Her jaw dropped and she was like 'oh my, I now know why none of those powders worked on your feet, it's the fact that your actually NOT cleaning them, every time in the shower. - HonestCup20
