To soften my feet I use white distilled vinegar. I fill a bucket with just enough hot water to cover my feet and one cup of vinegar microwaved for one minute. I soak them until the mixture has cooled. Then I use a pumice stone to exfoliate the rough spots and pat feet dry. Then I slather with lotion and cover with some type of petroleum jelly (even Neosporin). I then put on socks. I either do this at bedtime or before I go to work, so that they are being moisturized all day. It feels weird at first, but they stay soft. Vinegar is good for killing fungus and other yucky foot things too. I also use vinegar to clean my face to eliminate acne (do not get near eyes). Vinegar is great for a lot of things!

Thank you for that ideal, I am on my feet 12 to 16 hours a day, and my heels have started to hurt me, that I can not sleep with out raising them up on pillows. But I used this vinegar soak Wednesday. They feel a lot better and I did not have to raise them up last night. My heels feel so much better, I will be doing this a lot.
