I stepped in my dog's poop one day and didn't know it. The next day when I put on my shoes, I realized it was there. I cleaned the poop off with water and nothing else, and when I got to school and sat in my desk, I started to smell the poop. When I got home I washed my shoe with soap and water, baking soda and water, and bathroom cleaner. Still smelled. Desperate, I then sprayed it with Febreeze and Arm and Hammer. IT STILL SMELLED! So I threw my shoes on my porch, and that's where they've been the past few days. So I was wondering: what is the best technique for getting the smell of poop out of one's shoes?

Stop wearing them.

Honestly, I'd burn the shoes and get new ones. My older ones do tend to smell a little bit, but not like unwashable dog poop. It's definitely time for new ones.

You would "honestly" burn the shoes because you stepped in poop?

If I couldn't get the poop smell out, yes, I'd burn them. I couldn't wear them anywhere anymore, plus I'm a little bit of a pyro.

If possible, throw the shoes in the washing machine. You probably got some on the inside of the shoe as well.

First thing you need to do is make sure there is no poop left on the shoes. It's impossible to take the smell of dog crap out of dog crap, so until that's gone, you can forget it. Take a brush and some soap to your shoes, and after there is no poop or residue visible, apply some bleach to the affected area and let it dry. Don't let the bleach touch the fabric part of your shoes.

You can probably get new shoes for less than 30 bucks at your local shoe warehouse.
I throw shoes away if I've left them outside and a big spider moves in.
What are you feeding your dog, anyway? Kryptonite?

GoBoy has stepped in our dog's caca, before, and what I did was (after wiping what I could) place them sole-up out in the sun for a day or so, until the poop was good and baked.

Then I just banged them together a few times, brushed off what I could with a scrubbie, then tossed them into the washer with a load of car-drying shop towels.

All told, it probably took maybe 5 minutes actual work time, so it was worth it.

That sucks that your shoes smell like poo. My whole house smells like poo. Honestly, just deal with it. It gets better over time. Hang in there, kid!

Do either of these in a sink.

Method 1:
Wet interior of shoes and exterior crevices with vinegar generously and then rinse the shoes. Then apply cheap hair shampoo of fragrance of your choice and rinse thouroughly.

Method 2: For darker shoes only.
Shake a bottle of coke thoroughly, aim and open the cap at each shoe, especially the interior and crevices. After five minutes rinse it with bacardi or rum or beer of your preference. If you like the resulting smell then don't rinse your shoes.

Don't burn them - give them to your dog to use as a chew toy. The nasty mutt will adore you for it - dogs love eating their own shit. It's like dessert to them.

I find it hard to believe, DF, that you can't smoke anywhere on the grounds where you live, but they allow you to burn shoes. That's a bit strange.

Like GGG, I would also throw the shoes in the washer, unless they're leather.

Burning stuff is fine, but they don't want me smoking because I guess it's to taboo for them or something. I don't see why anyone should care, but I'd never hear the end of it if there was so much as one unlit smoke anywhere on or near me.

I like the different methods for washing the shoes, though I wonder if the smell would stick or not after that.

Fart Poopie, tobacco is a gateway drug. First puff and Double Flush will be hooked, next it will be booze, then marijuana, acid, coke, crack, meth, pcp, mescaline, paint thinner, peyote, heroin, Mda, Extasy, Rohypnol, Ketamine, mushrooms, Quaaludes, Jimson weed, Khat, GHB and before you even know it he'll be making crazy ass comments and flooding the place with ramblings and inanities and not making any sense. Do you really want this to happen??? I think he'd make a pretty "IFFY" member if he did. I applaud DF's choice not to smoke.

Bunga, I AM hooked. I smoked at NCSU. I just can't smoke here. I haven't had one in over a month and it's driving me mad. Don't worry; I'm going no farther than smoking. I don't want any drugs at all outside of a good cigar.

Dufya, you can't even buy alcohol (legally). Why would you even NEED to BOTHER with cigars, good or otherwise?

BTW, Bunga: "Whooosh!"

Well, since this one is derailed already, I'll answer that. I started smoking cigars just out of curiosity (the flavored ones smelled SO good), then it became a social thing, and now I'm addicted. I am legally old enough to buy and smoke them, and so was I when I started. Since I am 19, I can't see why it shouldn't be my choice whether to smoke or not.

Someone needs to whack Mi Amidot over the head for wasting alcohol on a shoe. Naughty Mi Amidot.

If we happen to get poopie on a shoe over here, I have a scrub brush under the sink specifically for the sole. I just rinse it under some water while scrubbing the shoe, and then spray some bleach cleaner on it and rinse again.

Take the shoes to your least favorite relatives' house and leave them under their bed.

If Tom Cruise stepped in his baby daughter's poop, he'd have his shoes bronzed.

I don't think I'm going to be that much help to be honest because I can remember treading in dogshit just before double French at school and stinking the entire place out, so much that a fellow classmate complained and I had to leave and sort things out, which I duly did. It was however double Biology in the afternoon and so headed straight to the shit and clogged up my soles again and prepared for the olfactory onslaught I was about to unleash. If I were you, I'd get a hose and spray the shoes then go and rub them on grass then repeat with the hose again. That should do it.

Embrace the poo. Otherwise, try peeing on them or vommiting on them - that should get rid of the poo smell.

This is referring to the "poop on shoe topic". Last night I was at a party and apparently stepped into this bio hazard of feces. I washed them off the next day after putting at least half an hour of elbow grease into it and finally got it all off. But the smell from the radioactive steam pile was still there. I found that rubbing alcohol (I used the Pine scented green one)gets the smell out right away and now my shoes smell minty fresh. Hope it works for you.

Oh, there is really no way of removing that smell. Because that's just how it really is. Our poop smells bad, and we have to live with it!

Dam we had a test evacuation at the end of the day at school and outside I stepped in dog crap. I must of stunk up the entire class like pure shit. People made fun of me so bad and so I felt like a piece of crap. I just washed my boots and got all the crap off, then sprayed them with axe deoterant. Thank god its friday. But Monday is going to suck. People suck. All they do is make fun of you and make you feel retared.

Of course you stunk up the entire room with the smell of pure shit. Believe it or not that is what dog crap is made from.

I would say there is certainly some "sucking" going on in your comment. Your attitude seems to suck pretty badly and your skin is too thin.
Get a grip on life and enjoy the good parts. You could turn this whole thing to your advantage if you just had a sense of humor.
