DIY Home Remedy #1: Foot Odor and Vodka

September 21, 2014 2 min read

Vodka is not only my spirit of choice (if you are going to have a drink, the clear liquors are the best way to go as they have less sugar) but also something that can deter stinky feet. Being in a fitness community this has happened to all of us – sweaty smelly feet from: -          Forgetting socks at the gym -          Using an old pair of runners -          Plastic shoes (versus leather) as they restrict air flow -          Genetics stinkyfeet2

  So instead of febreezing the crap out of them, next time you have this problem walk over to your liquor cabinet and grab that 26er of vodka and pour a little on your washcloth and give your feet a rub down.   Why does this work? The alcohol content in vodka is an antiseptic as well as dries your feet. This in turn kills bad bacteria and fungus. The drying effect decreases the amount of moister which is usually a perfect environment for the bacteria to grow in. Vodka

Some other fun vodka uses:   1)      Mouthwash – have a bad case of halitosis; mix 9 tbsp of cinnamon with one cup vodka for a DIY mouthwash cure (store in an airtight container). Swish around with warm water for amazing breath. I don’t suggest swallowing this though 2)      Freshens your Laundry, house and furniture – hate that funky, old clothes stink? I find I get this when traveling if there is moisture and humidity in the air and my clothes have been in a suitcase for too long. Keep a spray bottle with vodka in it and spray those clothes for a fresh smell. Always do a test color patch on your clothes however. Same concept goes for a stinky house or furniture 3)      Cleans carpet – if you have some nasty spills or pet spots on your carpet at home use that spray bottle of vodka on it. Allow it to sit for about ten minutes and then gently scrub the stain.   Source: http://www.ehow.com/info_8210259_uses-vodka-rid-odors.html Featured Image Source: http://www.nationalimporters.com/blog/index.php/tag/foot-odour/

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.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
