Kinoki Scam

Kinoki FeetI keep seeing Kinoki pads everywhere - mostly because I hang out in drugstores. Being mildly curious and having an internet connection led me to this article: Gee Whiz, It Turns Out That Kinoki Foot Pads Are A Scam.

So what is all that gunk in the pad? We're not really sure, but it shows up if you hold the pad over a pot of boiling water. Who knew steam had "metabolic waste"?

So yeah, if you were thinking of picking up a pair, just keep your money (and coupons) in your wallet.
