If you don’t make an effort to clean your custom orthotics properly, they’ll end up having a bad odor. To get rid of the smell, first, place your custom orthotics in a zip lock bag and store them in the freeze overnight.
Second, wash your orthotics with mild soap and a soft cloth or sponge. However, ensure your orthotics air dry thoroughly before using them as wet orthotics can cause bad odor.
Lastly, it’s wise to wear your custom orthotics with socks to minimize the risk of smelly orthotics. This is because socks wick away moisture from your feet. Contact PTI Orthotics today to purchase custom orthotics for various foot conditions.
