My students love me and say I'm their coolest tutor, but their only complaint is that my socks stink like heck.

I think it comes from wearing my shoes all day long and then going to teach them munchkins and rascals. How do you get rid of the horrible odor? :hiding:

Assalaamu Alaaykum

Maybe perform Wudhu.

Maybe Apply some lotion/cream/moisturiser after ofcourse with a scent/smell and

change the socks if the smell is that bad ,carry extra socks with you.

Obviously its your feet that are causing the 'scent' and not the socks so make sure your feet are washed and then maybe apply some sort of lotion and then put the socks on. but if this doesnt work insha'Allaah be patient and wait for an alternative i.e. better reply.

I am not sure if i helped, insha'Allaah you recieve better replies

.. peace ..

It's caused by bacterias on your feet. You need to kill those bacterias. Also you need to carry extra socks. Change your socks with that extra socks before you teach your students. And do not wear same shoes everyday. Today you can wear your first shoes, but tomorrow you must wear your second shoes and give your first shoes a chance to 'breathe'.

I did, but then I realized how cruel that was. Nobody in this world deserves such a cruel punishment.

I love your threads, they're very inspiring !

Try to not use nylon socks. Cotton or wool socks are better.

do not wash your feet with warm water, always use cold one, especially after shower and especially for wudoo, because fungi and bacteria grow fast in warm, damp skin.

And you need to give your adidas beckhams some holiday in the sun. Wash them, and take them outside during the day when the sun is out and warm to dry.
Use other shoes in the meantime.
or barefooted.
Your choice.

first rid yourself of the shoes once they stink there is no fixing them.. secondly buy ONLY cotton sox.. then follow the advise of odor eaters etc. when you make wudu make sure your wear a fresh pair every time and that your feet are completely dry before hand and that is also to prevent fungus..

This is an issue I can relate too. Oddly it was caused because I was spending too much money on my shoes and socks. Big name expensive shoes, often are highly water proof and become the perfect incubator for "El-Stinko" bacteria and the fancy high price pretty socks are an excellent growing medium. Shoes that are not water resistant/ water proof, and very cheap cotton socks do a lot to keep "El-Stinko" from growing.

Get cheap shoes that can breathe, If you are very active keep spare shoes and socks on hand and change both several times a day. Use any low cost anti-bacterial powder in your shoes every time you do not have them on. Keep your feet dry, feet do sweat very easily and do need to breathe, feet that are not dry and not allowed to breathe will get revenge on you and everybody near you.

Think of your feet as being puppies and your shoes as a kennel. A closed water proof kennel filled with puppies is going to stink very fast. You need to get ventilated, dry kennels for your puppies.

The climate in most of the USA is not sandal friendly except for the summer months (Provided you are far enough south to even have Summer months)

But an idea can be taken from the traditional foot war of the Native Americans and among the Arabian people. Un-tanned rawhide moccasins, sewn together with loose stitching that makes them more like the Leather Stockings used by many of us while traveling. They keep your feet warm, dry and allow for circulation of air.

Hmmm, there seems to be more than just a little wisdom behind sunnah clothing.

Natural Foot Odor Cures:
1. Use Tea as a Smelly Feet Remedy: Brew a couple bags of tea, preferably black tea, in about a quart of warm water. Once brewed, soak your feet in the tea for around 10-15 minutes every day or night for an entire week. Tea is a great cure for stinky feet, the tannic acid in the tea will prevent your feet from sweating in the first place; and if your feet aren't sweating, foot odor is less likely to occur. After you get your stinky feet problem under control, continue to soak your feet in tea once a week to keep the foot odor from coming back.

2. Use Listerine to Cure Smelly Feet: Soak a cotton ball in Listerine and rub it all over your feet, as well as, on the inside of your shoes. The alcohol and herbal extracts in Listerine is very effective in battling the fungus and bacteria that causes smelly feet.

3. Neosporin as a Foot Odor Cure: This is an incredible cure for stinky feet that has been known to completely eradicate the problem after 1 use. All you have to do is rub Neosporin antibiotic cream all over your feet before you go to bed, cover them with socks and go to sleep. There is a very high probability that when you wake up in the morning your foot odor problem will be gone for good, or at least for an extended period of time.

4. Vinegar as a Cure for Stinky Feet: Soak your feet in vinegar 2 to 3 times a week to kill the bacterium that causes your stinky smelly feet

I would do numero 4 and use apple cider vinegar bc apple cider vinegar eats bateria, eliminates odor, and helps restore you skin to its natural ph level.
also if you have very sweaty feet try getting a tawas stone. Wet the stone with water and rub all over your feet it will prevent your feet from sweating. You can also use the stone as a deodorant.

I 100% agree with this. I use kind of shoes at my job (as teacher too). So, they are made as finnish style but idea is quite same. After long day my feet are dry, socks too and no odor. Also even I have to stand and walk a lot during day, feet aren´t tired like they might feel using some other kind of, more expensive shoes.

I can't believe nobody mentioned menthol foot powder or dr. scholl's

DRY your feet before putting on your socks and put some foot powder into your socks before wearing them.
