Default Pumice stones?

Whenever I buy a pumice stone it seems like it works for about a week or two and then loses its effectiveness. I don't know if I have hard water and that's the problem or what. Anyone else find this to be the case?

Maybe all the dry skin is clogging the holes in the pumice stone and making it too smooth to work well? I have a Victoria's Secret stone on a handle that's worked well for years.

I've noticed the same thing with pumice stones. I think the sharp edges around the holes get worn down too quickly to be of much use for very long. I like my callous shaver better.

I agree. My pedi-egg (or whatever it's called, you can get it at bed bath and beyond) works very well. I used mine today!

I've noticed it as well. I use one of those 4 way thingies. It seems to make them last longer.

I've seen those pedi-eggs at walgreens as well.

I don't have that problem. I find that the edges of the stone stay abrasive.
