Good Questions: De-odorizing Shoe Cabinets

Good Questions: De-odorizing Shoe Cabinets

Hi AT:SF,

When I read the shoes-off-inside debate I was reminded of my own smelly shoe problem.

We take our shoes off at the door and keep them in vertical shoe cabinets. This is working great except for one thing. My husband's a runner and his sneakers get stinky and the cabinets don't ventilate. Every time I open them I get hit with the stench. Would a sachet of baking soda in there absorb the odors?

Thanks,
Georgette
