    Thanks so much for all the ideas. I can use baking soda or ACV for now, but I do think I'll carefully try the Epsom salts as soon as I can find them, as the benefits are manifold. If I don't react to it, it will be great, I think. I hope it's not another one of those things, such as boric acid and washing soda, that you have to have a permit from a government agency to buy! (From the more or less FDA equivalent.)

    @Pattypans: I am sulfite sensitive, however I do just fine with Epsom salts.

    Mellow, thanks for that tidbit. It's very encouraging! Now I just need to find some Epsom salts and hope they're not a controlled substance, for goodness' sake!

    I'm sulfite sensitive, too. I can use a little bit of the Epsom's salts, but not too much. I currently grind it down a bit and keep it in the shower to use as a facial and body scrub.

    A foot soak leaves me feeling itchy and weird.

    Epsom salts are magnesium sulphate, not sulphite. Maybe that makes a difference you mellow. I am sulphite and sulphate sensitive and do react to epsom salts used in a foot bath. The only way to find out for sure is try by cautiously building up the exposure.
