Today, when my roommate asked me what was wrong, I told him that something I ate was making me feel sick. He works 10+ hours a day, and I didn't have the heart to tell him that the putrid smell of his feet was making me nauseous. FML

I think he would prefer you tell him than let him walk around smelling that badly. He could get fired if it's as bad as you say and customers smell it. Just be polite about it and he'll likely just say thanks and go have a shower.

At least you can't blame him

OP depending on if his feet smell with shoes or not, you may want to tell him because he could get fired from his job. If you do choose to tell him make sure you do it as nice as possible.

If it's that horrendous you think he would be able to smell them too...

#3 these girls that sat behind me in class had the worst smelling feet because they played soccer and didn't shower and there feet made the whole class room smell and they didn't know it.

i have had stinky feet i showered and scrubbed them it didn't help my feet sweat alot tho

#3 Its called being nose blind. Thats when you get used to a smell that you dont smell it anymore thats why he doesnt know.

That's what Febreze calls it. :p

sprinkle powder in his shoes!

If he's working ten hours a day I doubt he's doing retail

You're a good person.

If you don't tell him, it won't change.

Exactly op. Just tell him in a nice way.

just leave some for powder by his shoes. he might get the hint.

Some people can't help their foot odor. I think you should tell him but also get him some talc based foot powder. It helped me, maybe it'll help you too.

That stinks.

I've had to go days without cleaning my feet (weeks if you don't count baby wipes) and my feet didn't have an exaggerated stench to them throughout that time, also that was in combat boots. As long as the guy changes his socks daily, he shouldn't have a ridiculous foot odor. If he has athletes foot, that's a different story in which case he should get that fixed

Some people just have very bad smelling feet. I do from genetics, all of my dads family have smelly feet sadly and sometimes you have to do a little extra to help it. I found that the foot sprays and powders really do work and scrubbing my feet in the shower.
