So I'm a guy who didn't take care of his feet the way they should be taken care of. I wear boots every day to work for a total of 16 hours a day. I used a pretty standard foot spray and changed out the insoles of my boots on a regular basis. However after using this foot soak after just a few times I've noticed a drastic change in my feet in a great way. The cracks are starting to heal. The funk is going away. My feet feel lighter and softer, and are beginning to be a pleasure to stand on again during those long hours at work. Yes I'm a typical guy that didn't want to get into this frilly stuff, however now that I've gone there I will never go back. For any hard working man I cannot recommend this foot soak enough at least twice a week. Trust me coming from this "wife proclaimed" redneck your feet will never be the same again. There are multiple days during the week where I look forward to soaking my feet in this. I can't recommend it enough!
