STOP Stinky Foot Odor in its Tracks!

STOP Stinky Foot Odor in its Tracks!

Do you or a loved one suffer from stinky foot odor? Stinky feet are optional!

How to get rid of stinky feet.

My husband has been coaching football for over 20 years now, and he can ruin a good pair of tennis shoes one day out in a rainy practice. Fortunately, I know just how to tackle foot odor!

You probably have these ingredients at home already!

Gather Your Supplies

All you need is blue Listerine, distilled vinegar, water, and a basin for soaking. My husband happens to wear a size 18 shoe, so we have to use TWO basins for him! We got these white ones at the local dollar store.

Prepare the Magical Concoction

Mix 1 cup Listerine, 1 cup vinegar, and 4 cups of very warm to as-hot-as-you-can-stand-it water.

This is all you need to stop stinky food odor in its tracks.

Hope this helps all of you with kids in sports, too!

Soak feet often to keep stinky foot odor away!

Fireplace Facelift – An Inexpensive DIY Weekend Project

Fireplace Facelift – An Inexpensive DIY Weekend Project

When we purchased our 1970s custom-built ADA accessible home out of probate, we were ecstatic at the price – but we knew we were in for quite a few repairs and updates. This home had not been well taken care of, but we fell in love with it for its Brady Bunch charm and 1970s state-of-the-art technology, which still remained intact.

One of our favorite projects was transforming the outdated fireplace with cheap bookshelves into a modern day focal point of the home.





Follow these steps below. You can easily complete this project over a weekend. We spent about $10 on brushes/rags we pitched afterward, as we already had leftover paint.

blue tape, a paint brush with very wispy bristles, SEVERAL clean rags, ladder(s) (as needed) and paint the same color as the wall (you are just going to mix it 1 part paint to 1 part water)

SAFETY FIRST: Always have someone help you with ANY ladder work.
Remove everything from the area




Use a quick-dry drywall filler for any imperfections left behind (as needed)

Sand and paint the side walls (we used a plaster-type product to match the rest of the home)



Use blue tape to protect anything you do not want paint to drip on.



BEGIN from the TOP and work your way down.
White washing is extremely messy and drippy. I was laughing so hard chasing all of the paint that was pouring down the cracks until I got my groove.

Use a soft bristle brush to apply the white wash (mix 1 part paint to 1 part water and stir with paint stick)

IMMEDIATELY pat any and all white wash that you have applied in order to prevent dripping.

You can always go back and apply another layer if you want to. I used two coats. They dry FAST because brick is VERY porous and absorbs paint quickly.





Voila! You are done! Put on your finishing touches, and enjoy your new fireplace!
