Why are you watching your DH stinky cycling choes on TV



Or has he left them on top of the TV ?

lol, telly addicts.

The old trick of bicarb should work.

They do ponk, though don't they?

My dh has taken to stuffing his with newspaper after a ride because they are 'wet' ewwwww

What's the bicarb trick?

RTKangaMummy Sat 13-Sep-08 14:42:42

in answer to your question

Have you tried spraying them with something

Or actually get him to spray them or deal with them

His stinky shoes his problem !!!!!!

does he wear cycling socks when he wears them?

My dh has some ultra techno space programme ones that stay dry no matter what, even when they come out of the washing machine.

Well it is my problem too as he keeps them in the cupboard under the stairs, the hole cupbaord stinks and it is starting to waft around the house....

DrNortherner Sat 13-Sep-08 14:45:53

He wear cycling socks yes, but they are not special material I don't think.

Sounds like you need an extra strength glade plug-in in your under stairs cupboard.

I had to resort to those measures as the shoes were attracting animals. Don't let him bring his ponky shoes in the house! He can keep them in the shed with his precious bike.

DrNortherner Sat 13-Sep-08 14:48:44

<ahem> his precious bike lives in the cupbaord under the stairs. No way will he put it in teh shed.

He loves it more than me.

Mind you, sayng that, my dh's 2 bikes (winter and summer) live in a CUSTOM MADE METAL BOX in the front garden.

With 2 of the most enormous padlocks known to man to secure them from all the obvious voracious bike thieves.

DrNortherner Sat 13-Sep-08 15:00:27

My dh has 3!

His work and winter bike live in the shed. His other one is a carbon framed trek madone. He strokes it daily.

I think we've talked before about our dh's and their 'hobby'. I can't be doing with it.
