We had a great weekend visiting Virginia and seeing family. This included a day on a farm with chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits, etc. etc., and lots of running around in bare feet or shoes without socks.
By the end of the day, when we loaded the little ones up into the van we had the most horrible collection of nasty-smelling feet! My de-tox solution? I took a bottle of off-brand Listerine look-alike, poured about a 1/2 inch layer into a large flat bottom plastic bowl, and one by one bathed the childrens’ feet with the help of a wet-wipe for scrubbing soles and between toes. Then each one got a soapy-water rinse to decrease the intense medicinal smell.
The result, a group of tingly fresh-smelling feet! Now, the new dilemma: what to do to treat the toxic shoes?.
