6 DIY Stinky Shoe Solutions

September 19, 2014 2 min read

Okay, I’ve got a problem, and I’m hoping I’m not the only one. My shoes smell RANK. Like, I could gas a room if it was fairly enclosed. The shoes in question are really comfy moccasins, that I rarely wear with socks because it’s summer and my feet would overheat, I even have insoles in them, and I clean my feet - I SWEAR, but to no avail. So I’m on the search for ways to de-stink my shoes, and here are the top 6 tips that I’ve collected to solve my stinky shoe setback: 1. Use fabric softener sheets – roll up a couple of dryer sheets into balls and stuff them in your shoes to wick moisture and hopefully give off their fresh scent. 2. Citrus peel – use orange, grapefruit, lemon, or lime peel in your shoes to impart that fresh citrus smell that doesn’t smell like a gym locker room. 3. Freeze your shoes – put shoes in a plastic bag and keep them in the freezer overnight to kill the bacteria responsible for stinking up the place. stinky-Shoes-Step-04   4. Baking soda – sprinkle baking soda into your shoes and let absorb overnight, just be sure to shake them out before wearing them, or put the baking soda in a sock before putting it in your shoes to avoid a white dusty mess. 5. Newspaper – stuff shoes with newspaper to dry them out 6. Alcohol – swab shoes with a cotton ball soaked in alcohol, it will dry out the odor and evaporate quickly, unlike cleaning out your shoes with water. You could also use vinegar, although the smell is a bit strong. I’ll be trying out each one of these, as well as a good foot soak and scrub, but I’m curious to know if there are any other good tips out there, or if these methods I’ve mentioned have worked for anyone else.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
