Stinky Dance Shoes? Beat the Funk with this easy DIY!

DIY Deodorizing Sachets:

  • Baking Powder

  • Arrowroot Powder or Cornstarch

  • Essential Oil- Lavender, Tea Tree, Peppermint, Purify are all great options

  • Silk/cotton sachets with cinch top

Add 1/2 cup baking soda, 1/2 cup Arrowroot powder, and 10-20 drops of the oil of your choice to a bowl. Mix well. Fill your silk sachet bag with mixture, and tie closed. Stick the sachets in your dance shoes after class for them to absorb the moisture and prevent odor.


- Utilize essential oils that are anti-microbial to kill the bacteria in the shoes like: Eucalyptus, Orange, Lemongrass, Lavender, Peppermint, Tea Tree (Melaleuca), Rosemary, Frankincense, ect.

-Not all Essential Oils are created equal. Meaning, many on the market are adulterated with chemicals and are not the pure/real thing. We love and trust doTERRA, as their oils are third party tested for purity.

-Replace the sachets with a fresh mixture every month or so

-After dancing, give your shoes some time to air out. This will help them dry, and extend their life. With air + the sachets- you'll have stinky shoes no longer!
