My trainers always end up smelling even when I buy an expensive leather brand - is there some way of getting rid of the odour? Thanks, Mel
This can be a real problem for a lot of trainer wearers. You could put them in an old pillowslip or towel and pop them in the washing machine on a low temperature but please check the washing instructions inside prior to doing this as you don’t want to wreck your trainers.
After washing them it is then a good idea to put your trainers outdoors to dry in the air as this will help to rid them of odors - do ensure they are completely dry before wearing them.
I have also heard that you can pop your trainers in a plastic bag and put in the freezer for an hour as this will help to kill the germs that contribute to the smell. Finally always ensure you wear cotton socks as they also help to minimize odours.
