Musty fishy shoes
My son got his Adidas Sport shoes (heavy, padded, some leather trim) wet on a visit to the beach.
After I rinsed them out and dried them and they had a fishy, musty odor.
I soaked them overnight in a pail of water, then ran them through a cycle in my washer (with normal detergent Cheer) and hung them out to dry in the sun.
They still have a fishy, musty odor.
(Time to note here that this is a young boy with NO foot odor problems!)
What is the next step?
I was thinking of soaking them in a Baking Soda mix, but don't know the proportions for a good soak mix, or if that would even work.
