My feet have taken quite a beating this summer between wearing flip flops non-stop, running around the yard barefoot, and spending time in the pool. On top of it all, I am prone to dry, cracked, calloused heels...but who isn't?
That said, I decided to spend a little time getting my tootsies back to a (semi) normal state with a very popular foot soak recipe found on Pinterest. Now, I should warn you before I say anything else – the blue Listerine may or may not turn your feet blue. Mine definitely turned blue, but I scrubbed it all away with the pumice stone. That said, you have been warned...
SO, what is the magical foot soak recipe? Listerine, vinegar (apple cider or white), and hot water. Let the tingly concoction work it's magic for 15-30 minutes, then scrub away the nasties. I kept my tea kettle next to me and added more hot water to the mix every 5 minutes or so.
Afterwards, my feet were baby-soft, aqua blue (right on trend...right?), and super tingly all night. This DIY is definitely a keeper. Now, if I could just get the rest of my projects to go as smoothly as this one...
