Smelly shoes are the absolute worst - especially when you are visiting at someone else's home.
They can make you feel very self-conscious and uncomfortable.
But one self-confessed 'cleaning guru' named the 'Queen of Clean' on Instagram has revealed her best tip to help those who suffer from the stench.
"...There is nothing worse than smelly shoes," she wrote on her Instagram account.
"Pop a few tea bags inside your smelly shoes to fight off bad odours that are caused by heat and bacteria."
Describing the trick as an "oldie but a goodie", Lynsey also advises, "The longer you leave the better. Any tea bags will work, even the minty herbal ones."
The 'Queen of Clean' also suggested on ways to save on waste.
"To save waste make sure you reuse the ones from your shoes for other household tasks. Tea bags actually have lots of uses from cleaning marks of windows and mirrors to fertilising your plants ."
