Repair Damaged Feet With Bread And Vinegar

We often underestimate how much stress we put on our feet every day, and sometimes it results in calluses and corns. How-to illustrator Yumi Sakugawa has a solution for those ailments, and it involves strapping on vinegar-soaked, stale bread. Yum!

How exactly do you do this? Just take a slice of stale bread and soak it in apple cider vinegar. Tape the soaked bread onto the bottom of your feet, put your feet into plastic bags to avoid creating a mess and leave it on overnight.

This has got to be one of the weirdest home remedies I've come across, but apparently it's a tried and true method. Reader's Digest and Live Strong both claim it works. Apparently, the vinegar is good for killing fungus and eliminating itching, and the bread might just be an effective, continuous delivery mechanism. Or maybe some foot magic happens when it goes stale. Who knows. In any case, if your feet need treatment, it wouldn't hurt to give it a go.

    Not for fungus, but if you do this for a couple of days you will have nice feet again, shower at night and scrub hard to remove dead skin, then apply vaseline (petrolium jelly) for a few nights and you will notice the difference straight away.

    Also walking along the sand in the beach is an excellent exfoliator.
