For all you barefooters out there that are getting dry, scaly feet, I have a cure for you.

1. Bag Balm
2. Old pair of socks

Wearing sandals and being barefoot did a number on the soft and delicate nature of my princess like feet. Intolerable. It got so bad my skin cracked and hurt. Unthinkable. I got some Bag Balm (used to treat and soften cow teats) and spread a glob of it on my lizard like stompers and then covered them with some old and saggy socks.

Two applications and my feet are baby butt soft and worthy of admiration, jealous stares and a gentle caress. Joy. I just want to touch them all the time.

Bag Balm. Spread the joy.

Bag balm.... Great stuff. Works equally well in the winter on dry chapped hands. Apply and cover hands with a latex or rubber glove.

this reminds me of the old Dan Aykryod Saturday Night Live skit...

"Bag-O-Glass...this one's a real hit with the kids."

This stuff might be perfect for rips. (flaps of skin coming off hands). Anyone tried it on that?

I use it to prevent rips by putting it on calluses. It works great. My hands are soft but it doesn't lose the callus completely so I still have protection when doing things on the bars. I don't bother with the sock part - just put the stuff on my calluses whenever they are really bad (like after 120 pull up workouts!).

And I also use it for what it is supposed to be used for since I have goats with udders! They love it!

The stuff is real cheap but try and get it from a feed store or animal supply store and not a health food store. It should cost pennies for a long term supply. You can also order stuff with antibiotics in it to prevent breast infection in your dairy animals if any of you need that! :blush:
