List: Ten ways to get rid of zombie feet.

I just wanted to say thank you very much to everyone who participated in my survey!  I know, I know.  R&W is all about fun and not making my readers do extra work.  I’m sorry…  Your comments and ratings were helpful.  You should know that I’m taking them all very seriously.  I have some plans for Raviolis & Waterworks and I wanted all of you to take part in it.  If you didn’t take the survey, but would like to, you can access it by clicking here.

An anonymous person in the survey requested a post that I had to deliver with right away.  It is appropriate for the Halloween season and is definitely considered an emergency condition.

Ten ways to get rid of zombie feet.

1.  Cut your toe nails bi-weekly.
Every other week, take a few minutes to groom your toe nails yourself or get a pedicure.  This Revlon nail clipper is super inexpensive and gets the job done well.  A nail clipper is a must for adults.

2.  Moisturize your feet daily.
For maintained feet, one of the first things you should do after your shower is moisturize with cocoa butter cream.  Invest in a cute pair of slippers to stop yucky stuff from clinging to the cream and to avoid slipping.

Idea:  This product from Nivea is priced right and leaves my feet soft and smooth.

3.  Sleep with Vaseline and socks on your feet.
To get rid of zombie feet before the sun rises, slather Vaseline on your heels and protect it with thick socks.  The thicker the better because this allows for the Vaseline to really get in there.  Add "zombie feet" to the ailments Vaseline magically fixes..

4.  Let your toe nails breathe.
As much as most of us adore having fun colored toes, always let your nails go naked for a while so they have time to breathe.  If you don’t rock natural, unpolished nails for a few days a month, your nails could turn yellow.  Ew.

5.  Periodically soak your feet in treated water.
To keep your feet maintained, soak your them in the tub filled with water, apple cider vinegar, and baby oil.  This moisturizes your skin and makes it real easy to maintain your cuticles and scrape away dead skin.

6.  Invest in paraffin treatments.
Try to do this a couple of times a year, typically before sandal season and sometime in mid-winter.  The skin on your feet will feel it’s best right after the paraffin treatment is peeled off and it's magical.

7.  Don’t walk around barefoot.
Walking around barefoot is unsanitary and a great way to get things like foot fungus and warts.  This is probably the easiest thing you can do to get rid of zombie feet.  Don't like socks?  Invest in slippers and leave them at the foot of your bed so you remember to put them on as you get up.

Idea:  For the biggest joke ever get these zombie slippers as a reminder to wear them and what you're trying to prevent.

8.  Wear shoes that fit.
Believe it or not, your feet can shape themselves to your shoes.  Make sure shoes fit and are comfortable.  Sometimes slanted toes and horrible bunions can be attributed to tight and ill fitting shoes.  Unfortunately, this is difficult to fix after the fact and may even require a surgical procedure.  For the love of zombie feet, buy the right shoe size!

9.  Remove chipped nail polish.
You’re feet may be in mint condition, but chipped polish can still make them appear like zombie feet.  Invest in nail polish remover and use it in between fresh coats of paint.

10.  Stay away from zombies.
The most important tip of all is:  If you don’t want to have zombie feet, stay the hell away from zombies!

How do you get rid of zombie feet?


  1. See, this is exactly why I took down photo thumbnails in my blogroll... I don't need some nasty feet appearing all day long on my first page! Debs' (I know she will be here soon) posts used to give me creeps for that reason back when I still had thumbnails beside your posts in my blogroll :)

    1. Who me Dezzy? Why would any of my little ol' posts give you the creeps? You crush me!

    2. not the posts but some of the photos that appear the first in them and thus appear in our public blogrolls too :)

    3. Lol, my deepest apologies, Dez. If it makes you feel better, I showed the picture to luci and said "what's that"? She replied with "mommy's feet". Lol!!!!!!

  2. Those feet have appeared on Pat's site and they never fail to give a fright. I do love to moisturize my feetsies and put on my toastie toes (warm comfy socks) and let the lotion soak in all night long.

    1. Bonus points for guessing Pat and bonus points for using moisturizer socks.

    2. Pat made me sick and now you're giving me a second helping? YYYYYYYikes!

  3. lmao, do I get bonus points for guessing me? No? Damn! lol

    Yeah, walking around barefeet with cats or dogs in the house is rather nasty to do. Litter here and there and whatever the dog brings in. And avoid zombies, check!

    1. Guessing yourself is cheating, so no!!! Lol I'm glad that you agree with my tips. See, I solved your problems with a list. Hahaha

  4. Exfoliate! Get a good pumice stone and keep at it :)

  5. Vaseline + socks is a great (and cheap!) trick! Def a must for me in the winter. :)

  6. Yikes to that picture!!! I tend to get blisters because I walk so much. I found that you can also just put lotion on them every day as soon as you get out of the shower, then put your socks on. In just a week or so, you have soft feet. Same as Vasoline, only you can do it during the day without having squish feet!

  7. I work in a shoe store. I've seen some feet that cause nightmares. Can I please print this out and hand it to people? Or maybe slip it into the bag when they aren't looking?

    For real, one time I saw a lady with a toe growing out of her toe.
