    Calluses are located on the bottom of the foot. Some degree of callus formation on the sole of the foot is normal, because it is our body’s way of protecting itself.

    To help relieve culloses, cut an onion in half – the size of the onion should be determined by the size of the callused area the onions surface has to cover. Let the onion halves soak in wine vinegar for four hours, then take the onion halves and apply them to the calluses.

    Bind them in place with plastic wrap, put on socks and leave them on overnight. The next morning, you should be able to scrape away the calluses. Be sure to wash and rinse your feet thoroughly to get rid of the onion/vinegar smell.
