Hand or Feet Softener: Wash the area to be softened. Rub hands/feet with shortening, and add enough white sugar in to act as an abrasive. Rub this mixture into the skin. Wipe off with paper towel. Wash hands, then use your favorite lotion. Note: this can be quite messy. If you do your hands, have everything available near the sink and then use this method. If you do your feet, do in your bath tub.
