I wanted to wait until my feet were really dry and cracked before I tried it, but summer is coming to an end and my feet are still in good shape.
No, I'm not blessed with wonderfully self healing feet, I mow the lawn in flip flops each week (I live life on the edge), and the only way to get the green stain off is to scrub my feet with a pumice stone.
I've decided to finally bite the bullet and see how it works.
There are two different soaks I've seen on Pinterest so I tried them both, one on each foot.
Listerine and Vinegar Soak
You Will Need:
1/4 cup Listerine
1/4 cup vinegar
1/2 cup warm water
Soak your feet for 10 minutes and when you take them out the dead skin will practically wipe off.
Listerine and Shaving Cream Soak
You Will Need:
In a bucket, combine equal parts Listerine and warm water. Soak a towel in the mixture. Cover your foot with the shaving cream then wrap the soaked towel around your foot. Soak your foot for 30 min then use the towel to rub everything off.
Apparently any Listerine will work, but the blue kind is the most popular. So I grabbed some of that then started with the Listerine and vinegar soak on my right foot.
I had to double the recipe to get it deep enough to cover most of my foot, and I wish I grabbed a bigger bowl. My toes were cramping by the end of the 10 minutes.
Eventually I stopped admiring my right foot and started on the left with the Listerine and shaving cream soak.
I got the cheapest shaving cream I could find and slathered it on my foot.
I wrapped the soaked towel around my foot and sat back to relax for 30 minutes.
I got all cozy then reached for my book, which was still across the room where I left it. Crap!
No problem, I'll read the book I have on my Kindle.... which I left on the counter by the fridge. Dang It!!
I was pretty annoyed at myself for not being more prepared, then I spied the TV remote a few feet from me. I did an awesome scoot shuffle maneuver to reach it then enjoyed this while I soaked.
But it worked, beauty is pain right?
