    Antipersprint Spray feet?

    Anyone ever try spraying their feet with some antipersprint spray to prevent sweating and thus, keep feet dry and warm?

    Did it work?

    I haven't tried it myself, but I've talk to others who have, and they do claim it works ... it stops the feet from sweating.

    Be aware of the possible risks associated with aluminum (not in your bike ) -- a common ingredient in many anti-perspirants.

    Baking soda! Cheap as hell, no health hazards, works extremely well

    Also, merino wool socks will avoid smells.

    Here's a Winter Cycling article that talks about using anti-perspirant (scroll down to where it talks about feet):

    http://www.cycling.mb.ca/wintercycling.htm

    The article is written by an avid winter cyclist from Winnipeg (no, not me).

    this is about sweat, not stink
    ---
    and think about this before you use baking soda:


    baking soda is prescribed for the first stage of treating rampaging cases of athletes foot.

    the procedure is load up your feet with it, slap on the shoes, and your sweat will build and never evaporate. baking soda holds mosture to your toes, and the epidermis will start to peel away after a few days in big chunks, ...effectively stripping the feet painlessly

    then
    anti-fungal treatments can be used and are far more effective because most of the dead layer
    of skin is removed.

    so be warned. using baking soda isn't gonna solve any foot sweat, and it may cause your
    skin to peel away if you use a lot of it and keep your feet in it all day. it will solve stink
    but so will fresh socks and washing your feet
    I like fat bikes
    and I cannot lie.

    I've been using it daily on my armpits for over 2 years now... just make sure you dilute it in enough water, and no problems. FWIW I live in NM so it gets pretty hot here...
