The burning question*: Do you wash your feet in the shower?

It’s Monday, so let distract you from the ‘serious’ news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*no really)

WE KNOW HOW you feel. The week looms ahead and you have a lot on your plate.

So do as we do here in HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing questions…

This week: This is quite brilliant. A reader, who (understandably) doesn’t want to be named, emailed us with this:

This question has come up a few times with my friends and there always seems to be a 50:50 split, so I’d love some opinions. Do you purposely wash your feet in the shower or are they just washed by the water running down over them during the shower?

A. Wash your feet specifically in the shower, or…
