Most people don’t believe urine cures athlete’s foot. A few people do, although those few people include Madonna (which I think ends up working better for the non-pee side). But no one has ever espoused the theory, that I know of, that urine somehow helps soften and/or shine up dry and scaly foot flesh… until now.
Because now the Japanese have created the FootPee! Pack. Basically, these are two foot-bags that you can pee into, and then stick your feet into. So they soak in pee. Your pee. Which might help them in some way. Also, some kind of lotion is involved, but frankly, I’m horrified enough that I don’t need to know any more. “Easy & Surprise” indeed. (Via Tokyo Times)
