I personally always put a pair or latex disposable gloves on too but totally optional here!.
Hold the pumice under warm water for 10-15 seconds just to soften the pumice bar ,
Apply 2-3 drops of washing up liquid or body wash onto the pumice then grab the toothbrush and begin gently scrubbing the pumice in circular movements.
