Eradication of stink-shoe bacteria
Which effective method could best be used to eradicate the smelly bacteria that colonize shoes?
Someone mentioned freezing the shoes, but this does not work.
Normal washing powder and/or soap also does not work.
It seems such a waste to discard the shoes simply because of ignorance.
Thanx fo your time, Doc

Big foot, was out the shoes with diluted Savlon® and then expose the shoes to sunlight for at least two days. The Savlon® will kill of most bacteria and the UV light will take care of the rest. Good luck.
