Because personal hygiene is one of the hottest topics on the internet right now.

Everyone's been discussing their shower routine recently and it's really had us looking at people a little differently.

The internet is divided over whether or not you should wash your legs

Last week, there was a massive debate about if you need to wash your legs in the shower. Taylor Swift even joined the chat and admitted that, no, she doesn't exactly wash her legs because the shaving foam does the job for her? Yep, everyone's a little unsure on that one…

Now the latest hot topic is on washing the feet. It all started after news anchor Katie Alexander posed a question to her followers.

She tweeted: "Alright, this has already sparked a lot of talk here and brought up a follow up question: Do you wash your feet? I'll admit, I don't usually wash the bottoms of my feet because a)they're already in all the soapy water at the bottom & b) it makes it scary slippery! Your thoughts?"

And now people are sounding off – should you wash them or not?

Some of you might think that splashing your tootsies in the water that has just fallen off of your body is enough, but unlike your legs, you 100% have to wash your feet. Your feet are a breeding ground for fungus and bacteria so a little splash of water just won't cut it.

According to the Institute For Preventative Foot Health, you're meant to wash your feet daily and give them a good ol' scrub with soap.


They advise: "Wash and thoroughly dry your feet every day. Use mild soap, and wash between the toes. Be sure to dry thoroughly, especially between the toes."
