» A Guest Contribution by fellow barefooter and experienced hiker Shane Steinkamp
Today’s barefoot project is something I learned to do when I had kids. I do not like baby wipes because they either smell funny or do not get me clean. They leave me feeling slimy – ich…
So I ‘make’ my own wipes. These are perfect for barefooters. Allow me to explain.
Laundry borax – I get mine at Ace Hardware – kills everything: bacteria, viruses, fungi, plants… everything. But it’s not particularly toxic to mammals, which includes humans. You shouldn’t eat the stuff, but it’s an excellent ‘cure’ for athletes foot, among other things. If you have stinky shoes, scrub them out with some borax and your worries are over.
