Listerine Foot Soak-A Guest Post


I’m super excited to have my first guest blogger. It’s none other than my friend who inspired me into the blogging world, Alyssa from Two-Thirds Scarlett. Here’s her latest misadventure from Pinterest:

If you’ve ever read my blog, (Two-Thirds Scarlett, shameless plug),then you know I’m not what you call “crafty”.  Very rarely do I attempt anything on Pinterest.  But this little home remedy was so easy I had to try it.

I have really dry, cracked feet from wearing nothing but sandals for months.  Not very pretty.  This “miracle” pin said:

“Mix 1/4 c Listerine (any kind but I like the blue), 1/4 c vinegar and 1/2 c of warm water. Soak feet for 10 minutes and when you take them out the dead skin will practically wipe off.”


First off, I had to double all the “ingredients” to even make a puddle deep enough to soak my piggies in.  Ten minutes later…nothing.  NO change.  No softening.  No dead skin falling off like snow (sorry for the visual).  The only thing I accomplished was making my feet smell minty fresh.  And they were tingly so that was kind of nice.

Long story short: Pinterest FAIL.  Don’t waste your time (or your mouth wash for that matter).  Apparently the real miracle home remedy is applying Vicks Vapor Rub or Vaseline to your feet and then just…putting on socks.  Surely Chris has a pair he wouldn’t mind sacrificing…

Thanks, Alyssa, for being my first guest blogger and sharing your Pinterest adventure with us!
