    Hello,

    Sorry to bring this disgusting ritual to the table, but I need help. I have calluses on my feet to the point that apparently they are what are causing my foot pain (and blisters). I purchased a "Ped x callus shaver" but someone forgot to attach instructions and a well-labeled diagram along with the "Moron's Guide" tutorial.

    I cannot figure out for the life of me, which way I hold it (other than holding the handle...) and which part goes against my feet to shave off part of the callus?

    HELP PLEASE!

    I can't be the only person on earth who can't figure these out...

    Use the side with the blade edge exposed, as in the gray handle. Be careful! Do not apply to much pressure as you will cut more than you want to.

    From this site
    Soak feet in warm water to soften tough skin. Dry thoroughly. Gently draw the shaver across the corn or callus in a shaving motion to remove THIN layers of dead skin.​

    I didn't know you could buy those anymore. Nice to know.
    I have one but I use the Avon (basically emery board) & Dr Scholl's (more of a grater) foot files now. Had to try the PedEgg too; not that effective. I still use the Shaver once in a while; drag the blade side (the white side of the handle) along the callus. You get a feel for how hard to press. You can cut yourself with this so go slow. Works better after a brief soaking. Put on lotion and socks after or they'll dry out and crack.
    Pop the blade out and make sure it's dry before you put it back in. Not sure if yours tells you how to remove the blade;slide the little wavy part on the top (black side of handle) off of the little tab. Sometimes you have to do this to get out the trimmed stuff before you can finish.
    Happy Shaving! [​IMG]
     
  5. I use PedEgg, MUCH better. [​IMG]
    As for which side, use the gray side for shaving but like someone else already said, not do too much pressure, u cut urself with that, it'll hurt BAD!

    I think I would pick this before I would go for the razor to the feet.

    I have seen this. Banned now in certain counties of Illinois because of the fact that you really cannot change the water after each treatment without harming the fish. They were more worried about the persons spreading stuff than the fish. I have put my feet in lakes, rivers, etc.
    Anything from baby bluegill, bass, minnows and then some will do the same.
    This is also a psoriasis treatment in some natural hot springs.

    I think there's something wrong with the one I have.

    The blade isn't exposed and I was pressing HARD. It didn't make a dent. I had more luck with the cheese-grater thing...
