Vodka for foot odor

Alcohol is an antiseptic that can destroy odor-causing bacteria and fungus and dry out the moisture that allows these organisms to thrive. Simply soak a washcloth in the liquid and wipe your feet down at the end of the day. It should dry odorless, promises Business Insider, so no one should know you're swiping remedies from the alcohol cabinet.

Of course, rubbing alcohol works just as well, if you'd rather save that vodka for a martini.
