Soak in a black tea foot bath
Tannic acids in strong black tea kill odor-causing bacteria and close pores, which helps your feet to sweat less. Boil two tea bags in a pint of water for 15 minutes. Remove the bags and dilute the tea with two quarts of water. Let the mixture cool, then soak your feet for 15-30 minutes. Repeat daily until odor is gone.

Try an antibiotic ointment
Sweat, on its own, doesn’t smell. It’s when it interacts with bacteria that it begins to stink. So how do you kill bacteria?

In the morning, the bacteria will be gone, and with it, your foot odor problems. Here are some more potential reasons you might have body odor.
