I read that white vinegar is another natural (and healthier than bleach!!!) 
alternative to consider. For you, I mean, since, I, too, would agree to leave 
the foot care advice for someone with diabetes to a doctor. But I hope this 
helps you!  You could also try tea tree oil, found at health food stores 
(pricier than vinegar, but smells so good!)
