In this thread I will begin a 'pole' series where you are all asked how often you do something related to a certain topic.  Given this week's feet discussion, I will start with washing.

Wash my cars nearly every day.  Have an "all you can wash" pass at a local car wash.

What are you possibly driving through that you need to have them washed each day? That seems like a HUGE waste of time (and resources like water). 

I could have free car washes for life at the end of my driveway and I'm still probably not doing it more than once/week.

Just the normal stuff.  40 minute commute + black car = need for wash.  Not at all a waste of time (takes maybe 5 minutes) as I drive right by the car wash daily.  As for the waste of resources... :oldunsure::bag:

I’ll skip the occasional shower on the weekend but if I shower I’m washing my hair and feet

rarely floss, maybe if I’ve recently eaten corn on the cob

Hardly ever wash my car, probably been years

Floss in the shower. Makes it easy to remember and easy to do as well.

Wash my feet every time I shower. 

I'll skip showers every so often. 

Wash my hair every time I shower. 

Wash my car maybe once a month or two.  

Floss twice a day, but I have a bridge, so I'll miss the threader often. It's gross. Don't ever get punched in the mouth while getting mugged.

All of this except getting punched while mugged and bridges and stuff.

Yeah, that's a bad way to go out. Unwise. If I had to go back and do it all over, I'd just hand him the money instead of throwing a loaded sausage with onions all over his new track suit. I took a pounding. Those fists were fast.

If by wash your hair you mean shower, than every day. It you mean actually shampooing your hair, every other day. Too much of that stuff is bad for hair health.

I count standing in the soapy shower water as washing my feet.

There's a difference between washing and rinsing.  I rinse my hair every day, but only wash it every 3rd or 4th day.  Based on the results of this poll, this crew has some unhealthy hair and stinky ### feet.

Do you use a fresh towel each of those too?

If it's at my house no, at the gym of course.

Instead of flossing in the shower, I go the mouthwash route.

I wash my feet and floss daily.

i rarely wash my cars. Maybe 4 times a year.

i wash my hair once a week. I had issues with dry flaky scalp and it appears to have been caused by washing it too much.. Now it’s all cleared up and I’m growing my hair long. I will still rinse it with water and use conditioner in between shampoos.

Do you spit it on your feet. That'd be one way of washing your feet.

I often wonder if people shampoo their toupee?

Feet - I'd say every other day.  Sometimes I forget in the shower.  If it's the weekend and I've been wearing sandals, definitely.

Hair - every time I shower, so 5-6 times a week.  If I'm just bumming around the house on the weekend, I may not shower.  I don't stink.  

Floss - hardly ever.  :bag:

Car - probably once every 6-8 weeks.... black car so the thing looks like crap for a few weeks but it's a beater.  If/when I get a new ride I'll probably wash that sucker every week.

People washing their feet and hair more often than flossing is a bit worrisome.

Specifically wash my feet?  Rarely.  I take a shower everyday, and the combination of water, soap and shampoo seems to do an effective job.  If my feet are specifically dirty for some reason, I'll wash them, but everyday grime gets taken care of on its own.

This. A bunch of neurotic freaks in this thread. Unless you’re working outside in sandals, I don’t get the need to scrub your feet. The soapy runoff works just fine for me. 

Hair - every other day. It’s not good to shampoo every single day. 

Car - couple times a year I suppose. It’s just not that important to me.

I have a Sonicare toothbrush and my dentist said that while he still recommended flossing, that the toothbrush's action was as effective as flossing.  Maybe our resident tooth care provider can chime in here.  For the record my dental health is pretty darn good cavity wise.  :oldunsure:
