Anyway, I Am Thowing The Shoes Out, But What Can I Do About Her Stinky Feet?
Smelly (Malodorous) Feet
Smelly feet can be not only embarrassing but uncomfortable as well. But once you understand the problem, you'll be able to take steps to reduce the odor.
What causes foot odor?
Feet smell for two reasons: you wear shoes and your feet sweat. The interaction between your perspiration and the bacteria that thrive in your shoes and socks generates the odor. So any attempt to reduce foot odor has to address both your sweating and your footwear. The feet and hands contain more sweat glands than any other part of the body (about 3,000 glands per square inch) and provide a ready supply of perspiration. You're probably familiar with the phenomenon of sweaty palms, but sweat on your hands doesn't produce the same strong odor as sweaty feet. That's because your hands are usually exposed to the air and the sweat has a chance to evaporate.
Feet, however, are trapped inside shoes, where temperatures can easily reach 102 F. The perspiration moisture combines with the dark warmth to create a fertile breeding ground for the bacteria that normally live on our skin. The bacteria produce isovaleric acid, the substance associated with foot odor. The more moisture there is, the more bacteria proliferate, and the greater the odor. Smelly feet can also be caused by an inherited condition called hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, which primarily affects males. Stress, some medications, fluid intake and hormonal changes also can increase the amount of perspiration your body produces.
Preventing foot odor
Fortunately, smelly feet generally can be controlled with a few preventive measures. The American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society recommends that you:
Practice good foot hygiene to keep bacteria levels at a minimum.
- Bathe your feet daily in lukewarm water, using a mild soap. Dry thoroughly.
- Change your socks and shoes at least once a day.
- Dust your feet frequently with a nonmedicated baby powder or foot powder. Applying antibacterial ointment also may help.
- Check for fungal infections between your toes and on the bottoms of your feet. If you spot redness or dry, patchy skin, get treatment right away.
Wear thick, soft socks to help draw moisture away from the feet. Cotton and other absorbent materials are best.
Avoid wearing nylon socks or plastic shoes. Instead, wear shoes made of leather, canvas, mesh or other materials that let your feet breathe.
Don't wear the same pair of shoes two days in a row. If you frequently wear athletic shoes, alternate pairs so that the shoes can dry out. Give your shoes at least 24 hours to air out between wearings; if the odor doesn't go away, discard the shoes.
Always wear socks with closed shoes.
These preventive measures also can help prevent athlete's foot, which can flourish in the same environment as sweaty feet. However, athlete's foot won't respond to an antibacterial agent because it's caused by a fungus infection. Use an anti-fungal powder and good foot hygiene to treat athlete's foot.
Treating foot odor
Persistent foot odor can indicate a low-grade infection or a severe case of hereditary sweating. In these cases, your doctor may prescribe a special ointment. You apply it to the feet at bedtime and then wrap your feet with an impermeable covering such as kitchen plastic wrap.
Soaking your feet in strong black tea for 30 minutes a day for a week can help. The tannic acid in the tea kills the bacteria and closes the pores, keeping your feet dry longer. Use two tea bags per pint of water. Boil for 15 minutes, then add two quarts of cool water. Soak your feet in the cool solution. Alternately, you can soak your feet in a solution of one part vinegar and two parts water.
A form of electrolysis called iontophoresis also can reduce excessive sweating of the feet, but requires special equipment and training to administer. In the most severe cases of hyperhidrosis, a surgeon can cut the nerve that controls sweating. Recent advances in technology have made this surgery much safer, but you may notice compensatory sweating in other areas of the body afterwards.
Is It Energy Efficient To Run The Air Conditioner Only On The Second Floor?
I Have Central Air Conditioning In My Town Home And Have Two Thermostats. Often Only The Upper Floor Is Hot. Is It Energy To Efficient To Run The A/C Only On The Upper Floor, But Not On The Main Floor? If So, Should The Windows On The First Floor Be Open Or Closed? Is It More Efficient To Leave The A/C On All The Time (Turning It Up When You Leave) Or To Turn It Off And Then Turn It Back On When You Return?
Yes it would only use half the energy. The good part is that cold air falls to the floor cooling the down stairs also. It also create a temperature barrier between the sun heat and the lower floor.
I Need To Buy A Used Air Conditioning Compressor For My Car. How Can I Make Sure That It'S A Good One?
How Can I Test The Used Compressor Before Installing It. I Don'T Want To Pay Installation Labor Charges And Then Find Out That The Compressor Is Not Much Better Than My Old Compressor.
The above answers are incorrect somewhat..
Depending on what type of vehicle you have and if the used compressor comes with block off plates for both the suction and discharge sides, you can pull a vacuum to see if it will hold.
The other way is to just use your fingers!!!
Cover the suction side with one finger and turn the front hub, the discharge side should blow your other finger off.
Cover the discharge side with one finger and turn the front hub, the suction side should suck your other finger.
This is better than doing nothing..
