The present invention is a pumice foot scrubber designed for use during a shower or bath. Thorough exfoliating 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 scrubber 1, including a body 5, multiple suction cups 10, and an exfoliating surface 20. 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. Exfoliating surface 20 is composed of pumice and is fixedly attached to body 5. In operation, the user places foot scrubber 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 rubs the heel or other foot surfaces against exfoliating surface 20 to soften calluses and other hardened skin. Foot scrubber 1 is then rinsed by the action of the shower or bath water, disposing of the exfoliated skin.
