If I said "vodka" you'd think I was joking, but it comes from no less a source than the ABC World News. .Rubbing alcohol also works.

Here's a link to the story which also has tips about cures for
Headache
Halitosis
Aching Feet
Hiccups
Motion sickness
Road rage (road rage ???), and
Whitening your teeth.

If the alcohol doesn't work on your feet you could always try my own creation, a very Dodgy foot deodorant based on Eau de Cologne, called Eau Dem Golden Slippers.

Vodka, yes, I heard that too. That's some pricey solution but apparently it works very well. The same way a generous dab of white wine removes red wine stains from carpet. Didn't believe it until I tried it. It works like magic - Poof! Purple-blue stain all gone, instantly. :)

Didn't know about the red/white win. I'll remember it. Thanks.

Wash them frequently, air out your shoes (don't wear the same pair two days running) scrub dead skin with pumice and maybe try an anti bacterial (like tea tree oil) or a foot powder, also stick to cotton socks - not nylon.

antibacterial soaps (DIAL is a good brand), as well as epsom salt foot baths. it will make your feet less moist and will provide less of an environment for bacteria to form and grow, and you should be careful because that can very easily escalate into athletes foot. those are some macgyver-find-stuff-around-the-house methods but hey i hope they work for you

As TieGuy said: don't wear the same shoes 2 consecutive days. Get a rotation of (at least) 2, preferably 3 different pairs of shoes to wear throughout the week.

What AJ_Drose and TieGuy have suggested is good. Be sure to wash and dry your feet daily. Use a foot powder between your toes to absorb excess moisture. You can deodorize your shoes by sprinkling some baking soda inside them at night and lightly stuffing them with crumbled newspaper.

All the above & avoid vinyl & plastic PVC based shoes. Choose leather or natural fiber shoes when you can. They let your feet "breathe" & they will not collect sweat as much as manmade material shoes.

Welcome. :) It's tough, I know, to find shoes that aren't "Manmade Materials" or "Manmade Uppers". esp affordable ones for young people. You will pay double for leather, but it's worth it. They're much more comfortable too. (I shop Ross Dress for Less, Marshalls & TJ Max for leather shoes & usually save a bit of money.)
