Today’s Try It is right up my alley! I saw it on Pinterest— a magical foot soak that’s supposed to wipe all the dead skin off of your feet! This preggo loves the idea of getting a pedi-like experience for little to no cost!
Evidently, all you’re supposed to do is pour 1/4 cup Listerine, 1/4 cup vinegar, and 1/2 cup warm water into a bucket and soak your toesies for about 10 minutes. Then, you get a rag and the dead skin “practically falls off by itself”.
I thought I’d give it a try! I gathered the stuff:
I mixed everything together and put it the biggest bowl I could find:
I was a little sad that the bowl wasn’t filled up too high. I was concerned that both of my feet wouldn’t soak….I was right:
Even though both of my feet didn’t fit, I thought it’d be okay. This way, I could compare my soaked foot to my unsoaked foot.
After 10 minutes, I took my foot out. The bottom of it was Smurf blue. I grabbed a rag and wiped my foot off. I didn’t really see any dead skin “magically disintegrate”. So I kept wiping until my foot was more skin-toned and less blue:
After that, I compared my feet. Honestly, I thought they felt the same. I may try this one again, with more Listerine and water. I will say it helped my feet feel more relaxed; the Listerine gave my Hobbit feet a soothing, tingly feeling. So I guess not all was lost, right?
