Ok I confess, this isn't a new blog post but it's worth re-posting!  Today I bought a pair of black flip flops that turned the bottom of my feet black.  I'd show you but I'd rather chew foil, just trust that they were bad!  That is until I remembered trusty Dirty Feet Scrub that's super easy to make, fast acting and exfoliating. I love wearing sandals all summer but it's hard on my feet to be so close to the ground all day, it's grimy down there!  After several days of sandal wearing, it definitely shows in the way of deeply embedded dirt. Using this scrub is a quick clean up that you can do outside with a hose nearby for rinsing, sitting on the edge of the bathtub or while taking a shower.  If you do the latter, sit down to scrub and be very careful in the shower until you feet are rinsed off well. The beauty of Dirty Feet Scrub, besides being effective, cheap and nice smelling is that it's so easy to use!  Keep an unbreakable container in the shower at the ready so you can scrub your feet anytime you need to. To whip up a batch of soapy, sudsy heel scrub you'll need a mix of {organic} soap, sugar and Lemon essential oil will clean and soften heels, ridding them of embedded dirt that's unavoidable during sandal season.
Fill your container of choice 2/3 full with sugar and start stirring in the dish soap until it reaches a consistency you like. Add 4 or 5 drops of lemon for the extra grease cutting and antiseptic properties. I use plastic jam jars so I can safely keep it in the shower or bath. While scrubbing your heels, you're cleaning and exfoliating both your hands and feet and you won't have to scrub the shower or bathtub after use because there's no oily mess left behind, just clean feet. After your heels are scrubbed and shiny clean pamper them with some All Purpose Healing Salve to nourish and soften weary feet and hands.  It's easy to make and your skin will drink it up!  Or, if it's bedtime use Dreamy Sleep Salve.

Becka, you could but the Dawn with Oil of Olay is so nice! It really does have a softening effect and it smells goooood! Just buy a small bottle, you don’t need much :)
