Once again, I reveal with shame the lowest level of self-respect by admitting the trashy shows I watch. On tonight’s episode of TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo (a reality show that follows the family of a toddler beauty queen), Boo Boo’s older sister Pumpkin was trying on bridesmaid dresses when the store owner busted in with a can of Lysol to save the family from suffering through Pumpkin’s stinky dressing change. Pumpkin admitted to having terribly smelly feet (the family is notorious for on-screen flatulence and poor hygiene).
Bad odors can arise from the feet in many forms. Certain bacterial infections can cause fruity and putrid odors. Strong fungal infections like Athlete’s foot can also carry a certain stench. Having excessively sweaty feet can cause socks and shoes to smell malodorous. In Pumpkin’s case it was probably a combination of all of the above.
In the show, the store owner sprayed down all of the shoes and clothing that Pumpkin (Lauryn) was trying on. At Foot and Ankle Specialists of The Woodlands we carry a product to help eliminate foul smells arising from any source in your shoes. Clean Sweep erases all foul smells and helps prevent any bacterial or fungal elements. It is a clear, flexible antimicrobial micro-coating that works inside the shoe. It is non-toxic, hypoallergenic, environmentally safe and contains no fragrance or colors. Clean Sweep also contains micro-silver particles that have anti-microbial properties. Clean Sweep is also a great way to prevent things like fungal toenails and athlete’s foot infections. Contact us at info@FASthewoodlands.com for more information on our products and services.
Quote of the night from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo: June (Mama) referring to Pumpkin (self-proclaimed plump 12 y/o) wearing a revealing low cut dress: “You look like you smugglin’ two bear cubs”!
