I have seen it way to many times and it makes me sick….people walking out of the communal showers barefoot. I do not know how or why they do it, I am sure it must feel wrong on their feet. Do they not know what some people do in there.
I have heard of a lot of different myths like peeing on your feet to stop the germs or any infections like Tinia but I think even after a 5 day bender there would not be enough alcohol in your urine to kill the germs and other random things that people trollop from one hostel to another and town to town and country to country.
Its pretty simple…..Just wear some flip flops. You would be surprised that your feet do not get stuck to the floor every time you shower. Its almost as bad as people using other people’s soap and we are not talking about the liquid gel kind…..Its okay if it is your girlfriends or boyfriends but not soap left in the communal showers in a hostel…..Some people need to get some common Hygiene sense….
