Regular soap.: Wash your feet with regular soap, taking care to wash between your toes. Dry them well afterward (again--especially between your toes), and apply lotion to areas of dryness (heels, most likely--never between your toes). You don't need to soak in epsom salts (this will dry them out more), and you don't need to use hot water. Luke warm is perfect.
