Chaco Sandals
« on: Feb 08, 10, 11:12 AM »
Hi,

To all those using chaco sandals.
I love mine to death, they r very durable but only issue I have with them is the smell.
I've tried washing them drying them everything I can think of but I still can't get rid of the smell.
Anyone has any ideas/ways to get rid of it? Please let me know thanks!

Only starts to smell after they're wet i think, so what i do is dunk mine in water, then powder dry them before wearing. Try that maybe it helps a bit. I agree with you on the loving yours to death though  :hello2:

Maybe this might work.

Place cotton ball dabbed with a few drops of Lemon Essential Oil and leave there for a while.

I shall try all suggestions...
But chaco is still lasting la... 4yrs, hiking, travelling, cycling, motorbiking, still in one piece... I think the only think left to do is to..... Do a terry fox run with it... But nah!!!!! I'll leave it as it is...

Yes Chaco sandals are very durable. They are very reliable for outdoor activities. I think it is just normal for shoes to be smelly if they are frequently used. Lemon oil is the best solution I can think of.

Hey, I've heard of this old wives method of removing smell from shoes.
The best thing is, it's completely free!
Just put newspapers into your shoes and they will absorb the smelly odours.
Maybe if really smelly or if you want to make nice smell, can add some nice smelling liquids to the newspaper, like lemon juice or perfume - use whatever you have lah.
FYI, I have never tried this as I have never had smelly shoes.
But logically, it seems like it should work.
