DIY Foot Soak For Dry Cracked Feet
I have partnered with Gold Toe to bring you this amazing DIY foot soak for dry cracked feet recipe that you can make with common household items!
Summer leaves feet cracked and dry. You can thank your sandal wearing habit for your less than desirable feet. It lends to dry, cracked heels and tough callouses on the bottom of your feet. You can undo the damage done with a simple at home DIY foot soak using common items found in your home! This DIY foot soak is amazing and leaves the dead skin practically falling off once you are done. You’re feet will be revitalized and left feeling silky soft.
First get a large bowl or basin to use for your foot soak. Next combine 3/4 cup Listerine mouthwash, 3/4 cup vinegar, 1 1/2 cups hot water and 3/4 cup epsom salt (optional) in your basin. Now relax and soak your feet for 30 minutes. Kick back, read a good book, enjoy a cup of coffee, whatever you do relax!
Once you are done you’ll find that the dead skin practically falls off!! Use a pumice stone to help slough off the dead skin all over the bottom of your feet.
Next use a thick cream based lotion and slather your feet in a thick layer. Pop on some socks and sleep for the night with them on. I use the Gold Toe Oh. So. Soft socks because they are amazing! They are so incredibly soft and luxurious feeling on your feet.
These socks are my little luxury that doesn’t break the bank. When I do this DIY foot soak I feel like I’ve visited a spa but my pocketbook thanks me for doing it at home! I always keep these socks close by, even in the Summer, because when the AC is on my feet get cold! Since these Gold Toe Oh. So. Soft. socks are cut low I can wear them with capris or shorts inside without looking ridiculous. My feet are always happy in these socks!

Looks like such a luxurious foot soak too! I love getting my feet rubbed, and pedicures—those are my fav socks too!
Listerine? Really? I have never tried that before. I need something. I walk around bare foot all summer and by the end of summer my heels look like they have been through a war! I am totally try this!
It is amazing how it works. Listerine, not only for your mouth.
I had so many prolems with my cracked heelf after my second boy! 🙁 Literally nothing helped. Not even creams from the pharmacy. Then I found an absolutely incredible cream with ground all spice berry and it was like a miracle. Love it so much still keep using it! 🙂
I want those socks! They sound very comfy.
You should see my feet. They are horribly dry and cracked. It’s embarrassing!
The socks are great!
The socks look really cute!
I should treat my feet to such a luxury, they probably need them. Haha.
Thanks for this great foot soak. I get terrible cracking with my feet sometimes.
I wear flip flops a lot and I get really dry and cracked feet. This foot soak and socks are perfect for me.
I practically live in flip flops which are rough on my feet, so they could use a bit more TLC. A healing soak and some comfortable socks sound great!
They are so comfortable this time of year but they are so rough on your feet. Not an ideal combo.
This sounds like a great foot soak!! My feet get banged up good with sandals in the spring and summer.
This is perfect for this time of year! I will definitely be trying this soak this weekend.
Yes, we are all showing off our feet this time of year.
I so need to use this foot soak! I’m 8 months pregnant and can’t wear shoes due to overheating. So my feet are taking a beating. Man, I need to make my feet soft again!
Perfect for you. It will help your feet and hopefully make you feel a little pampered before the big day.
This sounds like a great idea! I have some of those socks and they are super comfortable.
Wow, now this sounds like what I need. I just started jogging, for the first time ever and man, my feet know it. Thanks for sharing.
I live barefoot or in flip flops and desperately need this. I can’t wait to try it out on my cracked heels. I love Gold Toe socks too and have to give these a try!
I will have to try out that foot soak! I have to have soft feet and soft socks!
this looks go nice and soothing. i am gonna share with friends and try myself. thanks for sharing.
I need to do this for my feet. They get so dried out from the pool. I have never tried Gold Toe socks before. They sound amazing.
I love how great my feet feel after i do a pedicure. I love Gold Toe socks. They are so soft and comfortable.
Gold Toe socks are the best. I got some for Christmas a few years ago and i love them. I am going to try this foot soak this weekend.
They are the best socks.
My feet are so super dry and cracked… definitely want to give this a try.
I need to do this! The skin on my feet are dry. Thanks for sharing this.
Very nice! I am going to have to give this foot soak a try. I love the lotion and sock trick, but I need a little something more. I always have dry feet.
That incredible tip .
Easy to make and very cheap.
Thank you very much.
Now I just need to get some Listerine. Thanks for the ideas my heels are cracking pretty bad!
My feet are begging me to do this right now. I’m a runner, so I should do a better job of babying my tootsies. Thanks for sharing!
Give it a try. Your feet will thank you.
I’m dropping by from the Whimsy Wednesday link party. This is such a fabulous idea — and with Listerine no less! Makes me want to soak my feet RIGHT NOW!
I have a link party that I am trying to grow. I invite you to share this — and a couple of other ideas — at my Grandma Ideas Sharing Time link party at http://grandmaideas.com. It runs Wednesday through Friday night at midnight (Mountain Daylight Time). I think my readers would enjoy this as much as I do! (We grandma’s tend to have dry, cracked feet…)
Hope to see you there,
Who doesn’t need this by the end of the summer! Thank you for sharing with us at the Brag About It Link party! Have a great weekend!
That is what I thought. By the end of summer, everyone could use this.
This post could not have come to me at a better time. My feet need some love after wearing sandals for two months straight. Thank you for sharing at the Home Matters Party!
I figured this was the perfect time of year for it. We can all use some foot love right now.
Wow, Listerine in the foot soak, never would have thought to use that, but will now. I love to soak my feet and want to use those socks with cream to soften my heels.
It is crazy how well it works. Plus your feet will smell minty fresh.
I am in Australia and can’t find the socks here. 😢
This is a good way to treat my feet, am going on holiday soon and wants to have good looking feet.
One question what type of vinegar do you use, white vinegar?
Yes, white vinegar or apple cider vinegar would work great too!
I’m trying this right now as i type this message.
Let us know how it works for you!
Can I use other brands of mouthwash or should it be Listerine? Coz I have Colgate and I really wanna try this right now!!! 🙂
They say Listerine brand is the trick. I haven’t tried it with others. If you do, let us know how it works!
