It may seem strange to you, but hundreds of women around the world have a habit of soaking their feet in a vinegar bath – especially in the evening, after a hard day’s work. And this has its own logical explanation, it is even recommended according to doctors! Actually, this should not surprise us because we all know the benefits of vinegar (especially apple cider vinegar).
Housewives regularly use it to clean their homes – it is harmless and does a job no worse than industrial detergents.
Vinegar is also ideal for restoring the shine of doors and windows, and to remove its characteristic sour smell, add a little essential oil. The benefits of apple cider vinegar in diets have long been known – the popular mixture of warm water with a spoonful of vinegar has helped quite a few women lose weight.
But let’s get back to why and how vinegar is good for our feet.
