Let’s be honest; now that the winter boots and cosy socks are on 24/7, our previously perfectly pedicured feet have taken a grim turn.

Summer sandals and flip flops make the €50 splurge on a pedicure totally worth it, but what’s the point in shelling out on a professional buff and polish when nobody will even see the results?

Still, there’s no denying dry skin and cracked heels are gross so a bit of DIY TLC wouldn’t go amiss.

Step forward the Listerine foot treatment.

Yes really; the minty mouthwash contains the gentle exfoliating ingredient benzoic acid, which gives nasty dry skin the old heave-ho.

Here’s how to do it…

What you’ll need:

Listerine (minty is best)

White vinegar

Water

A pumice stone

Instructions:

  • Add equal parts Listerine, warm water and vinegar to a large bowl.
  • Pop your feet in and soak for 25 minutes.
  • Gently rub your heels with a pumice stone to remove dead skin.
  • Rinse feet in warm water, dry well and slather in moisturiser.

Voila; baby soft feet for less than €2. Bargain.
