    Default Sounds silly....

    but how do you get dirt stains off your kids feet? DS returned to daycare this week and they have some new sand/dirt in the playground and DS has been coming home with almost black feet and that seemed to be stained. It doesn't all come off even after a soak in the bath, rubbed with a soapy face cloth. I don't know what to use on him to get them clean that is gentle on his skin.

    I wanna know how to get those stains off MY feet!

    Bleach? Lol! Just joking. I scrub and scrub my feet and they are always dirty looking. I have cracked heels and have been known to occasionally get a sander onto them and they are still dirty looking after getting several layers off.

    We have had that a couple of times and just had to wait it out over a couple of days for it to go away.

    DSS, try some moisturiser and socks for bed and your cracked heels should heel after a few days. I do that when mine start to crack as it gets painful for me and it helps after a few days.

    When this happens to me I use a scrub made up of salt and lemon juice. I let it sit for a little while and wash off - if it's particularly dark or stubborn you may need to do it more than once.

    Just make sure there are no little nicks of cuts on his feet as the salt/lemon will sting if there are!!

    Edit - I have used this on DS2 a couple of times since he was about 18 months.
    He is 3
