Isn't there a chain of sports shops in France called "Athlete's Foot"?   Perhaps they'd know... Devil [6]

No, they go brown. How brown depends on the strength of the solution.

In fact my mother told me that during the war they used to use dilute potassium permanganate solution painted on their legs to "replace" stockings. Wink [;-)]

Reminded by Nomoss and his cellulose insulation, make a solution of borax and water as a foot soak.

Same stuff just more potent form. Gem, how much is it at the pharmacie?

Looks like O/P Scotty's run for it so I am not posting anymore on this tread unless its in response of Gem's reply.
