How to Keep Your Feet Clean if You Can’t Reach Them

We all know how important it is to keep our feet clean. But what do you do if you can’t reach them? This can be a common problem for people with limited mobility or those who are simply unable to bend down far enough to reach their feet. Luckily, there are a few ways you can still keep your feet clean even if you can’t reach them.

Wash Your Feet in the Shower

One of the simplest ways to keep your feet clean if you can’t reach them is to wash them in the shower. This method works best if you have a handheld showerhead that you can use to direct the water where you need it. Just make sure that you scrub your feet well and pay attention to any areas that might be difficult to reach.

Use a Basin or Tub

If you don’t have a handheld showerhead, another option is to fill a basin or tub with warm water and soap and then soak your feet for a few minutes. This will help loosen any dirt or debris that might be on your feet so that it’s easier to scrub them clean. Just make sure that you dry your feet thoroughly when you’re done so that you don’t slip on wet floors.

Ask For Help

If all else fails, don’t be afraid to ask for help from someone else. Whether it’s a family member, friend, or even a professional caretaker, there’s no shame in getting a little assistance when it comes to keeping your feet clean. Just make sure that whoever is helping you has clean hands and nails so that they don’t accidentally introduce any bacteria onto your feet.
