Actually, one of my clients husband is a pro athlete. He says to wear shower shoes and carry lemon joy into the shower to scrub your feet with. The active germ killing ingredient is .10% triclosan. Just later one foot & wash part of you, then rinse & lather the other foot while you do the rest. Some idiots lather both feet at once and injure themselves in the shower falling down. LOL! [raises hand] GUILTY! he recommends leaving it on for 5 minutes.
