Q:

How can you make a good foot scrub at home?

A:

Making a homemade foot scrub can easily be done by gathering together a few simple ingredients that are commonly found in the home. Scrubs usually contain salt or sugar, oil and sometimes a flavoring ingredient such as vanilla.

Homemade foot scrubs are cheap to make and keep feet looking and feeling great. The scrub ingredients first need to be mixed together in a bowl or container. A fork or wooden spoon works well for mashing it into a fine mixture. A person then washes the feet with water and dries them with a towel. They then rub the scrub on the heel and soles of the feet using their hands or a pumice stone. Afterward, they rinse the scrub off with warm water and dry their feet.

Here are some easy foot scrub recipes:

Basic Baby Oil Foot Scrub
