I've tried everything, including washing them, soaking them in alcohol, you name it. But they still smell like shit!

Switch to a loincloth, easier to clean and much more metro sexual.

Have you done an independent smell test? You know, have your best friend smell your thong and then smell you and then....

Dueede!

Sounds like the stinky-footed climber's social nemesis: Pitted Keratolysis.

Ruined a night in the tent with the object of my affections long ago.

She made me leave my boots outside, and forced me to go wash my feet.

Then a pack-rat ate the linings out of my boots during the night. Hope he caught Pitted Keratolysis and died.


Seriously! Try this thread.

I have actually had patient's consult me about this matter. You can apply deodorant to other areas of your body besides just your underarms. For example, antiperspirant/deodorant products can be applied to the feet also. In addition there is a prescription product called DrySol which can be prescribed by your primary care provider. It is intended for specifically person who sweat very heavily - medically called hyperhydrosis. The more you sweat the more problems you will have with this sort of thing. The bacteria break down the sweat into chemical products which produce the odor you reference. Washing away the bacteria/sweat is the best solution but some people sweat so heavily that it is not practical for them to bath as often as would be needed. For those people, the prescription product is useful

There are also a number of products designed to convert certain animal products e.g. the compound which causes skunk odor, cat urine etc. into other odorless products called thiols. As an example, Nature's Miracle is one such product. It converts very offensive compounds produced by certain animals e.g. skunks into odorless thiols. Whether it would work for your clothing or shoes, I don't know but it would be worth a try, at least
