    Yes I did and it clearly says water is the universal solvent.

    In the cursory google search I did I also came across NASA referring to water as the universal solvent.

    It is peculiar that the few individuals arguing against this rather tedious fact don't have anything else to contribute to this thread.

    What do you recommend bick 4, lexol or is this the appropriate time to use Obnfs HDLP :D

    Personally I'd recommend what I have always used nivea.

    No offense meant,, but surely these aren't your feet are they ? They look like case photos from a medical book.

    You say that as if the two have to be mutually exclusive.

    I had a similar problem with shoes i loved but caused me sores, i used 'melolin pads' they worked a treat, stopped the pain, allowed the sore to heal and the pads stay put and don't peel off halfway through the day

    Y'all are just a bunch of sissies. You haven't truly lived until you have bled down the backs of your shoes and crusted your pant trousers. It is a spiritual experience.

    Stop wearing those shoes that are causing you those pains. My only pair that gave me a blister is a pair of St Crispins, at the big toe joint, but it's a small blister; and I have sent it back to relast.

    They will do long term damage to your health....

    New to this thread, so apologies in advance if this has been asked and answered many times . . . I'm looking for something stronger than RenoMat to strip shell. Any suggestions?

    What are you trying to strip from shell that RenoMat isn't doing the job?
