Smells Like Feet. Yes, I said feet.

I have three little boys. Well, they are 7, 4.5 and 4.5 years old, so not terribly little. The biggest problem is that they are boys, and this whole boy thing is a complete foreign thing to me. I grew up as an only child, and being a girl I don't remember that I was terribly stinky. (Please don't ask my Dad that question - I don't really want to know the answer...). Anyway, I have three very active boys who smell. Actually, they stink. Their room smells like feet - not a locker room, but feet. And it doesn't matter how often I leave the window open, bathe the kids, change the sheets, or do the laundry - their room smells like feet. I am seriously considering putting an air freshener in their room, but I don't want to walk in and be overwhelmed by the smell of feet and vanilla...sigh...

Any suggestions?

Odor Eaters in their tiny little shoes?

I have a little brother & distinctly remember his room reaking of "sports" and boyishness. Or feet. In high school I worked at a sports/shoes store and the whole place smelled like sweaty feet.

I think it's just something in boy chromosomes. All the testosterone leaking out maybe?!

As the mother of 3 boys, let me tell you that the best invention in this decade has been Fabreeze or however you spell it! It completely knocks out that locker room stench. When I go and help my grown son clean, I always douse the place with it!
