With all the rain, snow, and slush abound lately (in March, no less!), thick socks and boots have been a must. But keeping your toes nice and cozy also has a downside: feet that smell like fine aged French cheese. This is not the most attractive smell in the world. If you don’t have a bottle of Febreze lying around, there’s an easy, all-natural solution: good’ol black tea. You probably already have a few bags of this stuff sitting around in your pantry, and if not it’s an inexpensive purchase at the grocery. Black tea is great for this because it has natural tannins that help to neutralize odors, plus there’s not the added worry of excess chemicals and additives.

Here’s what you’ll need:
– 2 or 3 black tea bags
– A large bowl
– Water

Here’s what to do:
1. Take your bowl and fill it with warm water
2. Place your tea bags in the water and let them steep for about 5 minutes
3. Place your feet in the tea and wait for 15 minutes.
4. Enjoy your odorless feet!
