How to make your own apple cider vinegar foot soak at home

There’s no exact science to making your own soak. Simply fill your tub, sink, or basin with two parts warm water for every one part apple cider vinegar. Just be sure to always use organic apple cider vinegar that contains “the mother,” as that’s what holds all the nutrients.

Then soak your feet for 10 to 20 minutes, rinse with water, and seal in the water with a high-quality moisturizer.
