Okay… you’d think the mission here was “how do I take this one product that I love and find a way to write about it on all my websites?”
So, what do toilets have to do with feet, you ask???
I’ve used pumice stones (on my feet) before.
My mom got me hooked when I was a teenager. And I’ve continued to use them regularly — any time I want to treat myself to an amazing home-style pedicure.
The only difference between then and now is… I now have pumice stones to last me a few years! And I got ’em for FREE.
You see, I ordered 3 sets of Don Aslett’s toilet cleaning system recently. And as part of the “set” I got a huge “professional grade” pumice stone in each one. (They’re great for removing toilet rings.) That means 3 top-quality pumice stones!
These are about twice as large as most pumice stones that you buy for your feet in the health & beauty department in stores.
And those usually sell for around $5 apiece (for half the size). So that means I got about $30 worth of pumice stones… for free! That, or I got the toilet cleaning caddies for about 9 bucks each (…as opposed to their $19 retail price).
Either way, it was a win-win for me. I’ve never had stains in the toilet bowl which required a pumice stone — yet. So for now, these beauties are being used as luxury foot scrubbers instead! Thanks, Don Aslett!

Household uses for a pumice stone.
Who knew that I'd be writing about feet for a living?!… Or even that a website devoted solely to feet, shoes, and foot care issues would be successful? But as it turns out, many people have questions and concerns about their feet — and we do our best to provide the most helpful answers here. Myself and a handful of others who happen to have some rather unique foot issues share our firsthand experiences with everything from ingrown toenails, bunions, calluses and rough feet to trendy shoes and helpful foot modeling tips. When I'm not writing about all things below the ankle, you will find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
