Peppermint: Nice for Humans, Bad for Pests

June 21, 2016

Hiker with ankles showingIf the hot summer sun has you sweating in your boots, sandals, or running shoes, make sure to freshen them up with Smelly Shoe Spray!

But there’s more than just reversing odor and fighting germs to Smelly Shoe Spray. Unlike other sprays, Smelly Shoe Spray is all natural—you can recognize all the ingredients, including peppermint oil. And peppermint oil has another great side-effect: bugs hate it.

Now, peppermint can’t replace bug spray entirely, especially with Zika, Lyme Disease, and less famous diseases spreading. But it can be another layer of protection against biting, and right where you’re most vulnerable: your ankles and legs.

Ticks like to crawl onto the first warm thing that walks past (and are often found in long grass). A little peppermint scent around your ankles is another way to discourage bites (and protect a place where skin might be exposed to mosquitoes).

If you’re getting the most out of Smelly Shoe Spray by using it on more than shoes, than those are more ways you’re deterring bugs, too. Besides fighting germs and odor on shoes, Smelly Shoe Spray works great on other linens, including pet beds and any gear you might be traveling with. If you’re going to have a picnic, for instance, the smell of peppermint deters rodents, wasps, ants, and other bugs—then the combination of peppermint and colloidal silver found in Smelly Shoe Spray helps keep things fresh on your way home (cooler starting to smell like mold? Spilled mayonnaise in the sun? Dog ran through the river before shaking and jumping into the car? Keep things fresh smelling and germ resistant.).

If you haven’t harnessed Smelly Shoe Spray and figured out that it’s a summer essential, now’s the time to give it a try! Keep shoes from getting smelly, from causing embarrassment when you pull them off, and from making your feet stink by stopping odor with Smelly Shoe Spray. Preempt odor before you leave, and be ready when you take shoes off with Smelly Shoe Spray. Then look for more uses around your home and beyond—because we’re always finding more.
