"In the past, I never knew how to deal with stinky shoes — I’d try airing them out, but it never totally worked. The problem was worse with flats, because I usually wear them barefoot, and if they got caught in the rain? I considered them a goner (RIP, many of my shoes). Enter, however, these mini Moso natural shoe deodorizers, aka the solution to all our smelly-shoe woes.
I tried them first on my favorite black boots that I wear daily. They had started to smell a little musty, and the odor was beginning to transfer onto my socks. Overnight, the smell had completely disappeared, leaving only a leather scent behind. To say I was shook is an understatement.
I then tried them on another three-year-old pair of flats that had not been smelling the best since, well, three years ago. After one day, it no longer smelled like anything. And keep in mind that I’m using the same pair of bags back to back!
The product description says the bags are reusable for up to two years; you simply air them out in the sun to rejuvenate 'em once in a while. I’ve been using the same pair now for six months, and they’re still highly effective." —Yi Yang
