The best part about using tea bags to deodorize your shoes is that you can pick any flavor, or should I say scent, of tea bag that you want.  Apple spice, peppermint, or lavender scented shoes anyone?

I say, yes please!

I figured I’d test out this new shoe deodorizing remedy with a few bags of mint tea since I've always got a few boxes of that laying around and, hey, minty shoes sound/smell pretty good to me!
