Feet, especially feet that have been in shoes, as well as shoes, especially shoes
that feet have been in, are known to be stinky. Activated carbon is known to solve
this problem. However, it is only available for this purpose in the form of pouches
that deodorize the shoes after the feet have been
taken out of them, and do
nothing for the feet.
I propose putting the solution where and when the problem is by building
(removable) activated carbon pouches into shoes, for all-day deodorizing.
I did a Google search for this and was surprised to find that nobody has suggested
it before. Therefore I'm posting it instead of deleting it from my list of things to
||Uh, the use of activated charcoal as a wearable foot
deodoriser is quite well known. For example,
"OdorEaters", despite being heinously miss-spelled,
contain activated charcoal. They are removable
||Seaweed works pretty good as well.
||Seaweed does indeed work well. It provides a refuge
for small fish and invertebrates, and forms the base
of many marine food chains. Is it any good in shoes?
||Also a thickener in fast-food joint milkshakes. But yes, best pair of odoreaters I had was some German offering made with carrageenan, which I've been unable to find, since. Lasted through 1œ pairs of shoes.
