  1. This is great! I only knew about epsom salts! The rest was all new! Where do you come up with this stuff??!!

  2. Oh, I need to do this. In fact, I think I will, but which one? Thanks for the ideas!

  3. The skin softening foot soak sounds perfect :)

  4. what awesome tips! who knew i had everything in my pantry! thanks!

  5. What great ideas! I can't wait to try one! :-)

  6. Innnnteresting... coffee foot soak? I guess even my toes can appreciate a good caffeine pick-me-up. But at the moment that joe would be much better off in my mug with some creamer, so maybe what I need to do is make a huge pot and do both... ;P
