Okay, so we’re all addicted to Pinterest. That’s pretty much a given, right? There are so many DIY things to try, and not enough hours in the day! I’m about to go on a little mini-vacation (cousin’s wedding and celebrating my birthday early, whaaaat!), and I thought about going to get a pedicure, but I’m officially out of time! So, I decided to try the Listerine foot soak that I’ve seen all over Pinterest lately. The amount of each ingredient listed seems to vary depending on who is posting, but here’s the one that I am using right now:
1 C Listerine (any color – I’m using the purple one)
1 C white vinegar
4 C warm water
*no, there will not be any pictures of my feet. You don’t need that in your life. 😉
I don’t know if other people have experienced this, but my feet tingled for the first couple of minutes after putting them in the liquid. But hey, you’d kind of expect that when dipping your feet in Listerine, right? 🙂 I let them soak for 15 minutes, and then scrubbed the bottoms of my feet. In all honesty, it didn’t work quite as well as I thought that it would. It did remove some dead skin, but not enough for it to be a part of my weekly routine. Part of me thinks that I added too much water, or maybe not enough of the other ingredients? It was okay. Not great, just okay.
If you want to try this out, check out several of the “recipes” on Pinterest, and decide which one will be best for you. And then let me know if it worked for you!
Note: Some people seem to experience their feet picking up the color of the Listerine, but it apparently comes off when you’re scrubbing your feet. I’ve only read this from people who have used the blue Listerine. I also am not sure if the generic blue mouthwash will do the same, but if you’re not concerned with walking away with Smurf feet, then do what you must! 😀
