    Foot Care

    EEK! It's that time of year when Canadian men strut around in shorts and sandals. I am sorry, but one thing that almost always leads me to vomit is men's feet. (To be fair, some women's, too.)
    It's not difficult to look after your feet and they will look and feel so great afterwards.
    Here's how:
    Once a week, fill a bucket that both feet fit into with warm sudsy water.
    Soak your feet for ten minutes or more (if you have a heavy callous build-up, soak about 30 minutes)
    Remove one foot and pare off the dead skin. If your callouses are really thick, use a corn parer (available in Thailand), but be very careful not to cut yourself.
    Then get a piece of sanding paper (if you don't have callouses, skip the step above and use this) -- coarser grain for rough removal, then a fine grain to smooth the skin as soft as a baby's bottom. Also be careful here -- use the sand paper on wet skin and don't rub so hard that you sear through the skin.
    Do the other foot.
    Change the water and soak a bit longer. Trim the nails straight across (easier when they are soft).
    Rinse feet and towel dry.
    File the nails to make smooth.
    If you have nail fungus, apply Canestan to the nail surface after every shower (or at least twice a day).
    Apply a soothing lotion like eucalyptus or peppermint. Put your feet up.
    Wow!
    You'll also walk better, too.
    Oh, if you have hair sprouting on the toes, I'd shave that.
    If you can't reach your feet, ask the missus to help. Just ensure she doesn't file your toe nails into points. Unless you like that, of course.

    agreed. foot and hand care.

    but, erm, its easier to just go to the salon to get the whole lot done.

    I don't trust their gadgets -- who knows what manner of life form they used their tools on before you?

    There are some sales ladies going round the country with a foot cleaning machine...

    Even you are well clean and take care of your body, plunge your feet in the water, activate the switch and the water will turn black from what is coming out of your pores...

    Detox machine, somehow they call it...

    That's what they all say. Give up the piccies for the fish spa salon. Quite frankly, the only place I loved doing public spas was Japan -- those are clean people.

    ^^Dunno, forreaching, what kinda machine?

    Good thread. We cannot skimp on foot care and foot wear. I need to soak my feet more as described above, and increase my foot massage intervals.

    Most common foot problems can be cured by standing in a bucket of piss for 10 minutes twice a day.
    For healthy feet: After taking a bath, use a pumice stone to remove any hard patches of skin. Clean, dry and powder as desired.
    Keep feet bare as often as possible change socks at least daily, more in warm climates, where you should not really need socks any way.

    Those machines are a con; the water turns black as they put some chemical in the water that reacts with your skin sweat

    I did not say that i stand in buckets of piss. I recommend it for foot problems. I have no foot problems due to my huge marmite intake.

    What does Absorbine Jr do, BG.

    Pardon my ignorance. I'd rather have you tell me as a regular guy and consumer than google and get a "testimonial."

    ^ Folks use it for muscle pains -- kind of a mentholatum oily water stuff. Haven't seen it for ages. Came in a bottle with a mesh-like top that you rub over the sore spots. Smells like sh*t as all those products do.

    Heard that before. Less tough guys use Listerine mouth wash for athlete's foot.
