Foot Brush

The present invention is a foot brush designed for use during a shower or bath. Thorough cleansing of the feet is necessary to maintain good hygiene and aesthetic appeal. Many people do not take proper care of their feet because they feel it is too time-consuming, too messy, or too unimportant to bother with. Others are unable to take care of their feet because of decreased mobility, flexibility or balance. The present invention allows a user to improve the health and appearance of their feet with minimal time, mess, and physical effort.

Figure 1 shows a foot brush 1, including a body 5, multiple suction cups 10, a cleansing surface 20, and bristles 25. Suction cups 10 are fixedly attached to the back and bottom of molded plastic body 5 to prevent foot scrubber 1 from shifting during use. Cleansing surface 20 is composed of several bristles 25 that are fixedly attached to body 5.

In operation, the user places foot brush 1 in a shower or bathtub enclosure and affixes suction cups 10 to the floor and wall of the enclosure.  As the user is bathing or showering, he or she applies a small amount of soap to cleansing surface 20. The user rubs the surfaces of the foot against cleansing surface 20. Foot brush 1 is then rinsed by the action of the shower or bath water, disposing of dirt and dead skin.
