Top critical review
Can't really see the point...read on for a tip!

Right first of all, the first set of Pills got lost/damaged in transit and were not delivered so top marks to Amazon who sent me a new set.
The product itself left me underwhelmed. The idea is that you unscrew them, pop a pill in each shoe, leave in overnight and they are supposed to dry and deodorise the shoes.
The problem is that the fragrance is very very very mild, doesn't seem to dry the shoes out internally at all and seem ineffective. My shoes don't smell but I brought them to make sure they don't do, especially my work loafers or my gym shoes but yet after a few weeks they got the traditional shoe smell. Not offensive but no longer fresh.
Top tip that I learned from my grandmother. Take a square of cotton or muslin, pop into the centre a couple of cotton buds with essential oils dripped on, a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda and then close it and secure with a elastic band or hair bobble. Pop them into the shoes overnight and job done. Twice as effective and only need the contents changed over one or twice every 2-3 weeks depending on the freshness needed! You are welcome!
