…the down side to doing dishes is that after a bit, the inside of your gloves gets all rubberised and smelly and rancid. This i recently solved by tipping a small dollop of scented oil inside each glove before i start.
I use a (cheap) base oil, with a few drops of essential oil (usually bergamot or lavender) to keep the pong at bay. Result: a lot less nasty odour – and instant moisturisation at the same time.
It now strikes me as obvious that it ought to be possible to do similar for feet. But how? I suspect wrapping feet in a carrier bag might result in seepagers all over the decent carpets – not to mention a strong risk of slipping.
At the local health and beauty place, where i get mot of my pampering, they do a pedicure that includes a wax treatment – essentially, sticking your feet into plastic (?) bags, pouring in hot wax…and then covering the whole with a thick outer sock for fifteen minutes.
Sounds weird: feels totally yummy.
So-o…any ideas, anyone?
