I will be using Arm & Hammer Baking Soda for my holiday baking and cleaning to get ready for guests so I was excited to receive this box and shaker of baking soda from Arm & Hammer. I planned to put the box in my refrigerator to keep things fresh and use the shaker for baking or cleaning. But once I realized that I can use it for my spa products, I was really excited and realized that I might need to buy some additional containers of baking soda! Here are a few pampering tips that Arm & Hammer shared with me:
Since we are having a party, we put the foot soak into individual containers that are ready to use. I don’t have a funnel so I just made one out of paper. I purchased the containers in the beading section of a craft store and used a 40% off coupon. If you are going to be giving the foot soak as a gift, you could put it in a larger container with directions to add 2 tablespoons to a basin of water.
**Update ~ KarenB asked for more information about the size of these jars so I thought I would update the post for everyone. These plastic containers are actually for beads so the volume size isn’t written on the package. They are 1 7/8″ tall and 1 1/2″ in diameter. Each jar held 2 tablespoons which is enough for 1 foot soak. You can find them (affiliate link) HERE.
I made some vintage looking “foot soak” labels using Pixlr and PixMonkey. After cutting out the labels, I attached them to the containers using craft glue.
You can download this free foot soak printable HERE. I made it so that it is printable on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper but feel free to resize as necessary.
Looks wonderful doesn’t it? Yes, it felt as good as it looks!
