Making it work for best results
2 March 2018
To get the most out of this foot spa, I suggest keeping these in mind:
- place it on a flat wooden board (a little larger than the tub) and do not get the surface wet; if it does, mop it up
- pour lukewarm water in it for far quicker heating; give it 7-10 minutes otherwise it may take up to 20 minutes for water to be warm enough
- clean feet with a foot hard skin remover before soaking (i.e., on dry feet)
- mix epsom salts in a cup of water, dissolve and pour into the water to take care of any foot ache or tiredness; you may also use 2-3 drops of a (foot) cleanser but not more than that as the foam starts building up on the bubble settings. Soak feet for at least half an hour
- the rollers are manual. If you want to roll your feet , pour only up to the level of the pumice stone base
- clean it up with warm water and dry it after use
- follow with a foot cream and immediately put on gel heel socks before going to bed. Feet get slippery with the cream, so do not walk around.
- for long-lasting results, follow these steps every day for at least a week (2 weeks for tougher cases)
- this is, in the end, pretty much an electric hot water bucket (regardless of claims) but convenient and compact. So, the machine won't do much to cure your feet of hardness, painful or cracked heels or fatigue. The extra steps shared above are, I found, worth every bit it in the end.
