Can I put my climbing shoes in the freezer?
Yes, you can put your climbing shoes in the freezer. Freezing your climbing shoes can help eliminate odor-causing bacteria and reduce the smell. However, it's important to note that freezing won't completely remove the odor if it's already deeply embedded in the shoes. Freezing is most effective for preventing bacterial growth and reducing mild odors. To freeze your climbing shoes, place them in a sealable plastic bag to protect them from moisture and odors from other items in the freezer. Leave them in the freezer overnight or for a few hours. Afterward, allow them to thaw at room temperature before using them again. Remember, freezing alone won't fix all shoe odor issues, so regular cleaning and proper storage are also important.
