Easy Feet: Does it Work?

By Lauren Keith - bio | email

SCOTT CITY, MO (KFVS) - It's almost time to break out the flip flops, but are your feet ready to make their debut? Better slough off that winter skin with a new product called Easy Feet, but Does it Work?

"It's like a car wash for your feet" is the claim made in the commercial.

So many of you, including Anita Sims and Janice Thomas of Scott City, have seen that commercial and want to know: Does it Work?

"The suction cups don't stick," said Janice.

Immediately, we have our first issue, aside from our disappointment when we pull this out of the box. This $10 foot scrubber is made very cheaply. It's supposed to be like "getting a pedicure every day" and "grips to any floor," but we can't prove either of those claims true.

"It's almost dangerous!" said Anita.

This thing slips and slides all over the place. Both Anita and Janice tried this on their textured shower floor and a plain fiberglass tub. Neither worked. As for those alluring soap suds shown in the commercial, we have trouble getting the soap to even go through the holes in the sandal, let alone wash Anita's feet. Plus, she has to use her other foot to hold the thing in place!

"Well, I guess you could stand outside the tub and use it!"

So much for the name "Easy Feet!"

"My feet don't feel any different than if I used a washcloth."

The bristles are very cheap and fray easily. The sandal slips and slides. This thing looks nothing like the commercial, definitely disappointing my testers.

"I'd give it an 'F.'"

We tried every which way to get this thing to stick or even massage and clean our feet, but the only thing that sticks is one failing grade 'F' on this Does it Work test.
