For our babies, We have always chosen to breast feed and at the beginning I tend to have some issues with cracking and sensitivity. So for me it is a good idea to have some lanolin cream on hand in advance. Well a little of it goes a long way, so I typically have leftover. I have also discovered that it does go bad after several years. The shelf life is about 5 years for this stuff so you can’t always leave it in the back of the closet till the next baby comes along.
Anyway, I was trying to figure out what I could use the leftover on and one day it just came to me. Not to gross anyone out, but my feet tend to get cracked and icky on the heals especially this time of year. I typically don’t have time to do anything to them so they just get worse and worse. In under 5 minutes, I can rub some old lanolin on and throw on some socks to keep it from getting all over. During the course of the day or overnight my feet are getting softer and looking better. It is amazing how well it works!
Do you have any tips for using leftover lanolin?
