Natural ways to help with foot odor

Many of us have foot odor due to many reasons. A good breathable pair of shoes or sneakers and socks will help. But when your tootsies need extra help try these solutions:

Give your feet a nice soak in water with a bit of vinegar in it. Even a tablespoon of vinegar in 4 inches of water will do. Soak for 10-20 minutes then rinse off with water only.

Rub some natural oils such as aromatherapy oils on your feet before bed and wear socks over that so you won't ruin your sheets.

Give your feet a foot rub with some salts any salts scented or unscented will do. What you want is to scrub them so as to take off some dead skin then run with a good smelling oil or cream. If you don't have any creams use some baby petroleum jelly you can find in any dollar store.

Spray your feet with foot spray before wearing your shoes. Your shoes are very important if they smell so will your feet. It is hard to tell if they smell sometimes. Try the smell test on shoes after you have worn them. spray or disinfect if needed.

Always wash your feet well when taking showers or bath. No, they will not get clean cause the water is dripping on them, they need to be washed like the rest of the body.

Happy feet are also manicured feet go get a pedicure! Even guys get them. But make sure the place practices good hygiene and disinfects things for each customer.

Enjoy your good smelling pampered tootsies!

There's a gas smell inside the car.

Check your muffler for holes. The gases can enter the passengers cabin and it can smell like gas, specially if your car isn't burning gasoline completely due to bad tuning.

My Pontiac Grand Am Does Not Have A Transmission Dipstick Thats Visual... How Do I Change The Fluid?....

Sorry, but if you can't find the dipstick don't try to change the fluid.

If you want to add fluid, that's a bit of a trick too. The dipstick should be right over the top of the transaxle toward the front on either the left or right side. Once you have it located, start the car on level ground. Pull the dipstick out and wipe it clean, first noting the color and smell. It should have a petroleum smell and a good clean reddish/pink color. If it is dark and smells like it is burnt, it will need to be changed - but first check the level by putting it back in the stem and then pulling it out and checking the level. If it is to the full mark and meets the color/smell test, you're done. If it is clean but below the mark, check the owners manual for the type of fluid to add (part store can tell you too) and add a small amount until you get to the full cold mark. If you drive to the parts store and then add fluid, feel the fluid to see if it is warm or hot (carefully) as this will determine if you fill to the cold mark or the hot mark. The fluid expands and turns to foam if you put too much in so you may want to add a little and check it to avoid adding too much.

My turned on the kitchen cold water tap last week and the smell of petrol that came out was over powering ! It's still very strong I don't know what to do ! How do I clean it is there a chemical I...

Unless a petroleum product was poured into your well or the ground water around it was contaminated with it and it leeched into the well water, I suspect the odor you smelled was a high mineral content odor. This sulfur odor is often associated with the deep artesian wells and can be rather strong. Normally, it's caused by a seasonal change in the underground water table. If you didn't get the odor from the hot water tap, that's an indication, that when the water is heated to a high temperature the odor dissipates. But, to be on the same side, I would recommend that you have you water supply tested for contaminants. Generally, your local health department or a water testing company can do this for you. If it's what I think it is, the well can be treated.

Hope this helped to address your concerns,

My wife and I are renting a house. The landlord told us that the water heater was recently replaced. The hot water smells pretty bad. The landlord says that the fowl smell is due to the anode rod in the...

Hi. Your landlord is correct. Anode rod can produce rotten-egg smell. Ask him if he can replace the "sacrificial" anode rod with "Power" anode rod or zinc/aluminum rod to get rid of the smell. However, you need to decide whether you tolerate the bad smell produced by anode rod or the minimal toxin produced by zinc/aluminum rod.

You can also try to drain/clean the tank first then add peroxide treatment and see if the smell goes away. If you do this method, the smell is more likely to come back if you go on vacation and left the heater unused for several days.

This article explains it better: Why Does My Water Smell Like Rotten Eggs (scroll down to page 2)

Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks.

Burnt smell like a petroleum taurus 2001 3.0

Was car overheated? I've had head gasket problems with Ford b4 and you may have a bad heater core as well and this could be the reason you are smelling a petroleum smell.
