If the inside soles of your shoes are a little stinky, it’s easy to give them a freshening up without having to scrub them clean. First, sprinkle baking soda inside and let it sit for a few hours; the natural deodorizing properties will help lift odors. Then shake out the excess and spritz some vodka or rubbing alcohol inside to sanitize. Finally, stuff the shoes with newspaper; the newsprint is designed to absorb ink, so it’ll absorb excess odors and moisture, too.
