I haven’t, but I saw this on a pin yesterday in Pinterest and thought about trying it! My feet get so rough wearing sandals, so I need to do something!

@wisher558: My mom tried it. She had really rough heels, and she LOVED it. She did say it strung a bit, but she went out the day after she did it and got a case of Listerine at Costco. She did it with green listerine. Not sure if the colour matters.

I tried it. It didn’t do anything different versus just soaking in water. After I soaked for about 20 minutes, I used a callus shaver to remove the dry / dead skin. It came off the same as when I get out of the shower.

Listerine is primarily alcohol. You’re just cleaning your feet. If you have callouses, soak them in warm, soapy water and use a pumice stone or a callous remover. Then use lots of lotion and put on thick socks.

LOL, I saw this yesterday when I got lost scrolling through Pinterest Fails and it turned someone’s feet blue-ish.  I second the suggestion to do a warm water soak & a stone to get rid of callouses.
