You use it on dry feet. I usually wait about a half hour after I've showered before I use it. Just wash in warm water with soap when done, and leave out to dry!

i used my buffer on feet that had soaked for a little bit of time, perhaps it can be used on dry feet but i think that it would be more effective on skin that has had a chance to soften.
to clean just rinse with warm, soapy water and pat dry.

ive never used it on wet feet. i think its to be used on dry. and from my experience, the drier the better. and don't apply too much pressure, the file does most of the work, just make sure you lightly tap the skin off the file every so often to keep it effective.

You use the product on dry heels and as for cleaning it, I didn't use water to clean it or a wet wash cloth since it states not to use it on wet feet (I thought of it as essentially being the same thing) so what I do is use a brush (can use a paint brush I suppose) to dust off the dry skin from the surface as well as shake it off by flicking my wrist a couple of times. But I have yet to use it with water and honestly, I'm just scared to use water on it LOL. Sorry if this does not answer your question throughly but I hope it can at least "help" a little ...

I just bought it and it is so fabulous. It is designed to work best on feet when they are very dry - like before your bath. I tried both ways and dry is
best. Cleaning is a bit of a challenge. I've been pretty sucessful just tapping it on the edge of my trashcan. Make sure you have your feet over a waste basket or something to catch all the dry skin that comes off.

You use it on dry feet. I usually wait about a half hour after I've showered before I use it. Just rub back & forth on the rough areas of your foot. You'll see all the dead/dry skin come off. (I recommend using this over a trash can to catch the "shavings".)

If you have ever used any type of foot buffers for rough skin like the ped egg or the dr scholls version, it shouldn't bother you. I would say it isn't even as rough as those and the dr scholls version of ped egg does not hurt at all.

Is this a foot file or a foot shaver?
I have been fooled to many times and I will not use a cheese grater on my feet, so is this a textured file or one of the things withthe pointy bits that sheer your feet?

No, this is not a cheese grater like shaver at all. It is completely flat and the buffing bits are slightly raised and textured, versus open. I actually don't even know how the textured part is so effective but it is. There is virtually no way to hurt or 'shave' the feet with this tool. It's the best thing I've come across for at home pedicure use!! You will not regret the purchase. I mindlessly use it while watching tv since it's so safe!

Neither, actually. This is a foot buffer. It is designed to take feet that are relatively smooth (i.e., in need of no serious rough skin removal) and buff them to silky perfection. You can use it basically anywhere on your foot because it is so gentle. Although the diamondy bits look pointy they aren't at all. When I run my fingertips over the surface it feels similar to the roughest side of a nail buffer (so, not very rough at all). If you are looking for something to remove really thick/rough skin in a gentle manner you should take a look at Diamancel #20. You can use the #20 on really rough areas such as the outside of heels and the big toe, corns, etc. and then after you are finished go over the entire foot using this, the #11, so the foot is perfectly silky.

I've had mine for ten years. Seriously...TEN YEARS. I rinse it with super cold water after each use (about twice/month), just to get any tiny 'invisible' skin flakes off, pat it with a kleenex, then rest it over the sink to dry overnight. It's literally as good as the day I bought it.

The #20 (course) is to get rid of thicker layers of callouses, while the #11 (medium) is for fine smoothing. Think of them like different roughnesses of sandpaper. Use #20 first, then follow with #11. But if you don't have serious callouses, you might only need #11.

The #20 is designed for callouses. This model, the #11, is for smoothing. You would want to initially use the #20 for the roughest areas of your feet, typically around the outside of the heel, big toe, any corns, etc. After you have gotten rid of those roughest patches you would then follow with the #11 to use all over the feet to make the texture even and silky smooth everywhere on your foot.

I use both, but if you use this one regularly, there is less need for the callus one. I use this one on dry skin & the other after showering when I do my own pedicure. If I had to choose between the, I'd pick this one. It's remarkable.
