DIY Homemade Mouthwash Vinegar Foot Soak
If you are like me you’ve seen the pin’s and shares online claiming that the dead rough skin will fall off your feet when you soak them in Listerine, vinegar and water. Well I had a problem with this cause I’m frugal and I’m not going to use a $5 bottle of Listerine on my feet if I’m doing this at home and if I score a bottle for cheap its going in my stockpile for my pearly whites. For $5 I can let the lady at the salon scrub away and do the job.
What can I say if I’m going to DIY it has to save me money or else why go through the hassle?
To start with I should tell you I’m either barefoot or in flip flops cause I work at home and my feet were long ago liberated from high heels or pumps ☺ The most action my feet see are wedges LOL. Being that the case, I’m too shy and embarrassed to share a picture but lets all take a moment and think about Fred Flintstone and what his feet surely should have looked like…there got the mental? Ok, now moving right along…
Today I went to my favorite joint, the Dollar Tree and thought hey I can totally use their brand of Listerine looking mouthwash for this foot soak to see if I like it.
Beauty on a Budget is the way to go.
Here is what you’ll need:
1 Bottle mouth wash from the Dollar tree or comparable dollar store (2cups)
2 cups white vinegar
2 cups warm water
Mix it all in a tub
I sat down to watch Shark Tank and soaked my feet. (boy were they brutal tonight)
One thing, it feels good…tingly
Did the skin magically come off? No.
So what happened T tell us!
Well, it cleaned my dead skin, you know you get the gnarly looking dirty heel? I can never get that clean enough. While I was soaking I took my $1 pumice stone and scrubbed all around and soaked again. My feet were clean and some of the rough skin was super soft so one more time with my pumice stone and I’m super duper happy! I can wear sandals tomorrow after some polish and won’t be hiding my feet!
So is it magical? Nah
Would I use Listerine? Nah, I’m frugal hello?
Will I make this again spending a $1 from the Dollar Tree? Heck Yes!
