REVIEW: Gran's Remedy for Smelly Feet and Footwear (Original Version)


Hello everyone.

I am back with another review. This is crucial to be understood: I don't have smelly feet to start with. HAHA. It does sometimes get stinky here and there but no one ever noticed it unless they stuck their nose between my sweaty toes. Okay that's disgusting. So while I was wondering to whom I should test this product on, and tadaa! My brother. LOL. His feet stinks like ohmygosh and my mom can never get a hang of it. Once, I pick him up back from school and he was sitting behind in the car. Suddenly a freakishly stinky smell appeared and my dad asked my brother, "did you took off your shoes?" and we immediately open the windows to remove the smell. We cannot stand it. LIKE AT ALL. I even had to put my head out of the window to avoid the smell. So you can imagine how stinky his feet are and imagine the smell of his shoes. I am gonna cry. T_T

The solution is? Gran's Remedy for Smelly Feet and Footwear! I must say, I am really impressed with this stuff (not because I am doing this review due to the sponsorship but it is because it works!). It costs RM98 of approximately 24 USD for 50g. Here are the photos.

Claims, instructions and ingredients

Size on palm
Inside lid


This product looks and feels like powder (or corn flour to be precise). It is white in color and don't ever attempt to sniff it closely as there is no smell and you might end up accidentally sniff the powder into your nose. Anddd...haachumm! Here is the photo of the powder.

Powder (before any usage)


If you thought, "I am super lazy to pat this on my feet everyday to reduce the smell." Nope, its not meant for the feet but for shoes instead. And it is very simple actually. You just have to put one spoon (spoon provided) on each shoes every day - I usually do this at night before bed - for 7 to 10 days. Remember to shake well! I put this on my brother's school shoes and I have to do this while holding my breath. I can smell it from a meter away but this is my sacrifice as I am really keen to know whether it works or otherwise. Don't you?

One spoon

After spread it by moving and bumping the shoes around

It looks horrible on shoes, I know. But when you use the shoes, the powder will eventually disappear leaving behind its effectiveness of course. I move the shoes around (still holding my breath LOL) and do whatever it takes so that the powder spreaed well. It is not important to spread it because it doesn't state that in the instructions but I did it anyway. I think the more areas it covers the more effective it is. The quantity of the powder is a lot as I only need a small amount for each shoes. So I don't think it is much of a problem if you want to use it on all of your shoes and your children's shoes and your brother's shoes etc.

I am supposed to consistently put this powder in my brother's shoes everyday in a week but I often forgot to do so. I skipped a day or two but the 7 days cycle has finally ended. It states that after 7 to 10 days cycle ends, you are no longer required to put the powder on for 6 months or so as your shoes will never get stinky within 6 months. I will update this within 6 months if it turns out accurate (September 2014).


Anyhow, during the first day, I asked my brother if it works and he said it does not. It stinks like what still and I get skeptical about this product. I know I know I shouldn't be judgmental.

After the second day ended, and I was about to put the powder on the third day, guess what? I can actually put the powder WITHOUT holding my breath. Amazing right? I even took the guts to sniff his shoes closely before putting the powder on and it still smells but faintly.

Here's how bad my routine is: Day 1 - Day 2 - Day 3 - 1 day gap - Day 4 - 1 day gap - Day 5 - 3 days gap - Day 6 - Day 7. I can't help to be forgetful at times.

After seven days? IT WORKS! I didn't dare to sniff his shoes (of course) so I forced by brother to sniff in hard to assure me that there's no smell. I even asked my dad to contribute his nose for this experiment and he said it didn't smell at all. Amazing.

After the 7 days cycle ended, my parents picked my brother up from school and I asked them if he still stinks when he entered the car. My dad said for the first time in his life that he didn't hear my mom complaining about my brother's smelly feet. HAHA. So since all of them said it is no longer stinky, I accumulate all my guts and sniff the shoes myself. And I did it twice to assure myself that there's no smell! And it smells like new shoes. It does not smell like exactly out from oven LOL but I can confirm that there's no smell - except a very slightly powdery smell. I was amazed that this experiment works!

I asked my brother to smell his feet if its stinky (which after few hours of not using the shoes) and he said its no longer stinky too. I don't know how this relates but its amazing right? I asked him to smell his feet the day after and he said there's still no smell! I am not sure how long this product will lasts but it is a lot that I think it will lasts a year as I don't have any other stinky shoes to start with except my brother's.

UPDATE (after 2 months of application): I found out that after my brother wash his shoes, the smell came back and I have to reapply the powder. But to some extent, the smell never came back before he washed it.


Effectiveness: ★★★★★

Packaging: ★★★★☆

Price: ★★★★☆

Long term effect: ★★★★★

Overall, I do highly recommend this to those who suffer stinky feet and shoes. I thought it only works on shoes but it does gives significant effect on feet too. If I can rave more than this I will! My brother is very much happy with the results and he was amazed on how his feet are no longer stinks even if he didn't wear the shoes - which it is still stinks days after wearing his shoes before Gran's Remedy.
