Sandal Ready Feet

If your heels need a little TLC....this easy and effective home remedy will help give winter feet the boot.

  • 1/2 cup mouthwash (Listerine)
  • 1/2 cup vinegar (apple cider vinegar with the mother in it is best)
  • 4 cups of very warm water 
  • footbath or large container to submerge feet


Soak your feet until the water is cold, pull your feet out and scrub your heels vigorously with a towel to remove any dead skin that has loosened up.  Follow with a thick lotion or ointment and wear a pair of socks to bed.


Mouthwash has antiseptic ingredients that kill bacteria and other microorganisms.  Vinegar helps to soften the callouses on your feet because it is a mild acid, so it will wear away a little of the dead skin. As an added bonus – vinegar kills mold – so if you have any fungus problems, this may help!
