baking soda for calluses

April 4, 2008 9:29pm CST
Our feet are prone to calluses. So for thick calluses on the feet, do this. Fill up a small basin with warm water and mix in two tablespoons of baking soda. Stir vigorously. submerged your feet, while stirring the water once in a while to prevent baking soda from settling. After about 15-20 minutes, scrub your feet using store bought scrub or soap and use a pumice (a smooth stone from the garden washed very well can also do the trick). The feet will be whiter and the calluses will be easily removed. If you have a foot spa at home, put the baking soda in the water. The bubbling effect of the foot spa will better remove the calluses.
