While I am a barefooting flip flop kinda girl, dh wears vff's. He loves them. BUT, man do they stink! How do you clean them (is this necessary?) and get the smell out of them (this is definitely necessary!)?

If mine are exceptionally stinky - I soak them in the following:Funk Rock- Ammonia Bouncer -30 Loads!
1/2 tBS in WARM water... for about 30mins... then toss them in wash with my Rocking Green Classic rock... completely fresh smelling!
we cloth diaper...so after battling the diaper stinkies... we've come to love FunkRock... its awesome for getting rid of serious funky smells

I've done a machine wash, followed by a diluted vinegar soak (for about an hour), then air dry. Works every time.
Are you a college student, trying to navigate college while being Primal? Do you know any other PB college students on a tight budget? Heck, for that matter, are YOU trying to live Primal on a budget? Enroll at Primal University!

my last ditch effort for rescuing some similar shoes (stinktastic climbing shoes - oh god they smelled like feet and off cheese and yeast all at once; so horrible!) was to disinfect the hell out of them with a Dettol solution, then coat the insides and out with a baking soda paste overnight. then i rinsed off the baking soda and threw them in the washing machine. voila, and none too soon - it was getting so i could clear the climbing gym.
