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.

Yup. This is something I hadn’t really paid attention too - I rarely go out of my way to clean my feet and they seem tip top condition. Guess I’m lucky. I walk around the house in sandals and wear clean socks everyday.

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:

I might be crazy on the tooth maintenance. Use a sonicare, floss in morn usually and definitely every night. My teeth are pretty tight so the sonicare alone doesn’t get in there I think.

Feet: Not sure why you specified feet, but I wash my feet when showering, and shower an average of 6 times a week. Answered every day.

Hair: same as feet.

floss: 4-6 times a week. Answered every other day, but some weeks I'm close to every day.

Car: 1-2 times per month. Answered once a month

Do you have toothbrushing gear at work?  I do.  :bag:

I don’t, brushing teeth in the public bathrooms grosses me out a bit but it’s probably a good idea. I just do the heavy swishing water thing.

Do people with gaps in their teeth need to floss? Do they use regular floss or something thicker. Maybe a shoelace?

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

What’s normal?  Definitely not this. ;) 

In all seriousness, I’ve been coming to these boards for a long time and this has to rank in the top 10 of most unusual things someone does.  I knew a guy once that would go weekly to get his car washed but he was borderline OCD about the cleanliness.

Maybe the sonicare gets in there if you have big gaps. :lol: at shoelace.

If "Every day" doesn't win the Wash your feet question I'm going to vomit.  

I wasn't sure how to answer this one.  I obviously shower with body wash/soap at least once per day.  However, I probably only concentrate on and scrub my feet every other day.

I work in an office with like 10ish people.  The bathrooms are "private"... like a residential bathroom.  I used to think dudes in the "public" restrooms brushing their teeth were odd.  Now, I'm that guy... although our bathroom setup is different.

I don't do it every day.  Probably 2-3 times a week when I remember to after lunch.

It feels nappy if I don't shampoo it every morning.

But I'll cut back to every other day... for you guys.

For the record, washing a car every week or other week when you live in the Northeast (the land of the salt) is just plain prudent.

:lol: 

Thought about this today in the shower :oldunsure:

I cut my hair short so it doesn't get as nappy so I didn't shampoo this morning.  Feels fine.

After skipping a day, though, it'll get nappy/greasy so I will shampoo tomorrow since I'm going out for beers.  Mmmm... beers...

Every day should be a lock for 1-3, if it's not you're doing something wrong.  Too much variability in #4 depends on what kind of car and what you use it for.

Don't you shower every day anyway?  What do you do wear a shower cap?

Sonicare, floss and Oral-B toothpick brushes between the teeth.  Once every morning.  Dental cleanings every 4 months.

Maybe a little over the top, but, I've had bad gums before and don't ever want to go back.  When the hygienists told me to use the toothpick brushes it was a life changing experience as it gets way more crap out than just brushing and flossing.

Talking about actually using shampoo, not just getting your hair wet.  Though it is possible to not stick your head under the water.

Must be the extra 60 seconds it takes or something?  So weird.
