Natural Deodorizing Shoe Powder Recipe with Free Printable Labels

Made from easily obtainable all natural ingredients, this deodorizing shoe powder recipe is kind to both your shoes and your feet. Simply sprinkle some in your shoes overnight or before wearing with – or without – socks!

This recipe yields one 7 oz. container, but you can easily double it if you want to make more – say, one for each of your little sports players!  I used the white powder sifter bottles from Nature’s Garden for this project. Not only are they relatively inexpensive – $3.99 scores you a set of ten containers – but they can easily be upcycled once they’re empty! Since they are plastic, you can simply wash, dry and re-use! (Psst. These are also perfect for those dry shampoo recipes!)
