Foot Sandblaster

for really tough skin
  [vote for,

After a recent trip to the beach I noticed how silky smooth the underside of my feet had become. It strikes me that sand is a wonder-substance for the removal of hard skin and hence my suggestion for a Foot Sandblaster, basically a high-ish powered water/sand jet. If they had them at the beach then people could use 'em without fear of blocking up their plugholes.

       Definitely a good idea. +

       with added crabs for that 'summer beach feel.'

       The range of product can be expanded by having different textures of 'sand'. Sharp sand would probably be best for feet, builders sand for legs and hands, and cornflour for face.

       I'd like to see some sort of containment system, or at the very least eye goggles and face mask for the sand that gets blasted. otherwise, good idea. I often picture a little portable sandbox for feet, stick them in and wiggle.

       I have used similar systems to remove rust from cars or paint from various fixtures... I assume it wouldn't be THAT powerful? lestwise you'd strip flesh to the bone in about 30 seconds.

       A friend of mine told me he had taken off a callus with a belt sander.   

       So was going to post a manicure / pedicure shop that advertises its' use of power tools. But sandblast it you beat me too it.
