Antibacterial Foot Soap Recipe

• 8-ounce bottle liquid castile soap (I prefer peppermint scent, but almond is nice, too.)

2. To use: Add 1 to 2 squirts to footbath to help clean and disinfect feet and kill bacteria and fungus. This solution will keep in a squirt bottle for up to 1 year. Makes 8 ounces.
