Cotton socks advised to rid smelly feet
Men, it seems, can have the sort of feet that can put off even the most loving of girlfriends.

Some advice, however, has been offered to women who want to rid their men of their smelly feet.

Throw out man-made fibre such as nylon, advises the Daily Mirror's Catherine Hood, suggesting opting for natural cotton socks may be the best option.

"Socks and shoes made from synthetic fibres encourage moisture to build up and stop the feet breathing," she explains.

In addition, Ms Hood says that new liners for trainers and regular washing can help to reduce the pong.

"A little tea tree oil added to bath water helps clear bacteria and clear off any dry skin from the soles," she adds.

The advice chimes with that of the NHS, which tells people to change socks regularly and avoid nylon.
