    Yes I disinfect my bathtub after the flip flop cleansing.

    i NEVER go barefoot outside. blech. if i do wear flip flops, its my birkenstocks. i feel a bit 'safer' because there's a sort of lip around the edge of the shoe, and i dont feel my feet are near the ground.

    We shun the use of the term flip-flops (it's an "Americanism" ) and tend to delight in the confused and disturbed looks on tourists' faces when we deliberately use the word thong, as in footwear, in situations that would be bizarre if you assumed we meant underwear.
    Is it really? I've never heard them refered to as anything else til I went to the US. I said flip-flops & everyone looked at me strangely (not a random flip-flop, but in a conversation about footwear....), so I thought that it was a european thing!

    i wear flip flops however i live in the suburbs and i shouldn't due to foot ailments. i do wear the thicker ones with arch support, not the cheesy thin ones.

    women, you should always never put your purse on a public restroom floor, always use the hook on the door or keep it in your lap if there isn't one. purses can also carry major bacteria.
    Its not just the restroom floor, but ANY floor....

    I don't get this horror about flop-flops - one's normal shoes will pick all this bacteria too... what do people do about that?

    Yeah, it severely pisses me off when there aren't any hooks or anything to hang your purse on a bathroom stall. It's too freaking hard to pee and wipe and everything while clutching your purse. Makes me want to go purse-less again.

    They are called jandals in New Zealand.

    I don't get this horror about "germs" either. ALL shoes pick up stuff you wouldn't want to look at under a mircoscope. You are probably exposed to more killer bacteria walking down a city street, or touching a door handle, an escalator handrail, and worst of all, money/coins. Get a grip people.

    LOL - you forgot the ever so delightful "G-Banger" ... which makes me cringe every time I hear it. Or perhaps you associate with a more classy lot than the crass gutter trash I embrace as friends....

    novice - the thing about the flipflops - its said the cheaper ones - the bacteria goes right through the sponge, that was the issue at hand, making them more unsafe.

    sluce - good job with cleaning the tub!! i'd use a utility sink if you had one though. i realize they aren't always available.

    i have a doormat where the shoes stay upon entering. hopefully the worst of the germs stay there. of course there are times when the shoes don't come off right away for one reason or another.

    i would think very thin soled sandals wouldn't be very safe either. i don't wear them now but when i did, my feet would always be black or very dirty when i took them off. thus i quit wearing them.

    i for one don't fret about germs too much. i'm one for washing hands often with anti-bacterial soap. many of the hand-pump soaps today are NOT antibacterial, just nice smelling. you need to look and make sure you are getting one that kills the germs.

    Paranoia caused by the media again?

    If you are afraid of staph, do not touch door handles, grocery carts, the credit card machines in stores, products in stores, or anything that has been in the contact of someone else for that matter. Short of living in a bubble or creating a germ free home and never leaving it, how can one completely avoid contact with staph?

    Until all germs are eradicated, becoming Monk seems like an uphills battle.

    Maybe it's both, but in Australia we'll hear it used in US tv shows and stuff and I guess just assume it's the same as "cell phone" or "diaper".

    That's a new one. Either that or I've heard it before and repressed the memory.
