    Because of the powdered milk, does this have to be refrigerated?

    Is a lesser amount for each use just as effective? Say maybe 2 -4 tablespoons?

      Good questions, Tamie. Since it’s dry milk, it does not need to be refrigerated. I think a lesser amount would be fine. Maybe not quite as effective, but definitely doable. 🙂

    Erin, I am so excited to see this! I have all the ingredients already here at home. My feet need some pampering, so do my daughter’s from her long shifts at work. This will be a great Christmas gift! Can’t wait to try it, it sounds heavenly!

      This is an easy and inexpensive gift, so I’m glad you have everything on hand!! Your daughter will thank you for sure! I have a few made so I’m a little ahead of homemade Xmas gifts!

      Great! Give it a try and let me know how you like it! It’s super simple to make, so make a double batch and you’ll be set to pamper yourself and a friend!
