Be thankful there’s no photo with this post! My feet are terrible. Flip flops and dirt . . (my feet are always dirty from being in the garden) cause my heels to be rough and have splits. I’ve tried so many products – creams, home pedicure kits, even prescription cream, which worked but was expensive. I had been seeing on Facebook that Listerine could be used as a soak so tonight I decided to try it. What I found said to use 1 part Listerine and 2 parts warm water and soak your feet for 20 minutes. I made the mistake of going in the bathroom and sitting there with my feet soaking with nothing but the iPad and 20 minutes was an eternity. Tomorrow or the next day, I’ll do it during the day and sit on the porch and knit.
I used Wal-Mart brand “similar to Listerine” and it worked great. My feet were softer after 5 minutes. I’m not sure how they’ll feel in the morning but even after taking a shower, they still feel cool and tingly. After a hot day of working outside, that alone makes it worth doing but if my feet end up being softer and not to splitty, that will be great.
I also read that an Epsom Salt soak was good but I didn’t have any Epsom Salt that I could put my hands on quickly so I’ll try that another day.
Try the Listerine and see what you think . . I love the cool feeling right now!
