My DD has worn cheetah cups for the past almost 2 months and they make my DD’s feet smell so bad. She normally doesn’t have issues with smelly feet, but ever since she started wearing them, it has been terrible. Like to the point that we could barely stand to be in the car with her driving to spring break last week.
The good news is that he feet no longer hurt after a Severs diagnosis, but we traded off for smelly feet.
I noticed the odor about a month after she started wearing them. I washed them by hand that time but it never got better. Her shoes don’t smell, so I don’t think it’s a new funky odor that her body has developed.
Any tips or tricks on how to keep them from not smelling so bad? I ended up just buying new but feel like they should last more than 2 months. With summer months approaching with longer practice hours, the foot sweat is only going to get worse!

My daughter wears them. Wash them separately in the washer with some vinegar and that takes away the smell. In the winter they only needed an occasional wash with just laundry detergent but now with the warmer weather, they need frequent washing with vinegar to get rid of the smell.

I don't have personal experience with Cheetah Cups, so take this advice with a grain of salt. But perhaps try Lume deodorant cream on her feet, to squash funk from foot sweat. For the cups themselves, try using Defunkify spray (from Amazon) on them daily to keep odor away until you wash them. As already mentioned, vinegar is great for odor removal in the wash, as is borax. Good luck!

I washed them daily when DD wore them. I would put them on top of the dryer while the other clothes were in there and they dried before practice that way.

I used vinegar and baking soda to wash the cheetah cups. I would throw them in the freezer at times too. They do smell bad!

Lume and defunkify both work great. Look up the adds for Lume they are really funny and they explain the science behind the product.

OMG yes, the Lume social media ads are definitely worth watching. I learned about Defunkify from CB, wish I had discovered it sooner. It is GREAT on athletic wear (and my husband's smelly clothes from his never-ending home improvement projects, LOL).

I learned about Defunkify from CB too , I use it on my workout clothes. I use Lume every day, I like the citrus scents, but it does smell a little weird.
