18,000 Reasons to Leave Your Flip Flops Outside Door!

I just found this piece on MSNBC and was HORRIFIED! Since I am a self proclaimed flip flop-aholic, I will from this very second on be spraying my flip flops with Lysol on a weekly basis, using hand sanitizer more frequently (maybe 3x a day instead of once) and continuing to enforce the no shoes in the house rules!

I have found since being a mother of two boys that a no shoes in the house rule has dramatically cut down on the need for carpet cleaning and general “stuff” that gets tracked in to the house. But I’m now re-thinking my shoes just inside the front door rule and seriously debating a leave them OUTSIDE the door rule.

Are you a flip flop fan? Will you change any of your habits in light of this article? Tell me about it! I'll be back after I bathe my flip flops in Lysol...

Bleh! But I am not surprised. However, the option of leaving my shoes outside wouldn't work in the winter. They'd have moss growing on them in just a couple of days. However, we don't wear shoes around the house. They are left in the shoe closet by the front door. I hate using flip flops in a public restroom. G-ross!

Public Restrooms freak me out anyway and this makes me think of the Reef Flip Flops with the bottle opener on the bottom. The fact that someone would actually walk around town, go into a restroom, and then crack open their favorite tasty beverage from the BOTTOM of their shoe.. ugh.. so so.. wrong. It's a Costco trip for Lysol for me.. Thanks for sharing!

Hollie,

Yeah, I once saw a pair of flip flops that had a chamber in the bottom for water or other liquids and I thought it was so gross! I know what they intended, but I couldn't get over the gross factor!
