View Full Version : Boot Stink

What's the best way to destinkify Thermoflex liners? Can I toss these in a cold water washing cycle and air dry? They need to be remolded regardless, so I'm not worried about fit retention...

Boot Juice works!!!!!!!!!!
I found some at a shop in OR, Government Camp last year.
Check on Reliable Racing or other similar sites

I have some Boot Juice if you want to stop by and try that. I'm in San Carlos. I've found that Febreeze works pretty well. I spray that on my helmet as well. Apparently Febreeze is just alcohol and water. You can make your own (so I'm told) with 1 part Vodka to 8 parts water. I wouldn't try drinking Febreeze though. :confused:
Boot Juice seems to be the same stuff they use a bowling alleys to spray in your rental shoes.

Ken B always had the problem of nasty boot stink. So what he does now is after a good day of riding, he'll actually lick the inside of his liners. Sounds funny but really..it works. It's based on the idea about underwater divers cleaning their masks using saliva ...well go figure...Ken discovered that saliva also works on liner stench.

Aerosol deodorant / anti-perspirant applied to your feet before you put your socks on may help keep your feet from sweating thus reducing the odor. I also read this may help keep feet warmer on cold days by keeping socks and liners dry.
