A Possible Cure For Smelly Feet

Scientists in Thailand have developed a coating for socks that kills bacteria and cures smelly feet better known as athletes feet. You know that horrid smell that come from sweaty socks and shoes and send your relatives running including your pets.

It is said that the coating for these socks are made from zinc oxide nanoparticles, can prevent bromodosis, better known as foot odor, and pitted keratolysis, a bacterial infection. 

Antibacterial properties of ZnO-NPs, which are harmless to human skin, make the coating suitable to be incorporated into textiles, including socks, the scientists say. 

The coated socks were successful tested on cadets by researchers in Thailand. Well, in that case, we can't wait to get our hands on these to bring em to your feet.
