We use a facecloth, with good old soap and warm water, and rinse with clean warm water. Can be disposed of on vegetation. Very little cost and waste, and we feel WAY cleaner than you could ever get with wipes.

I agree, Jim. After a few times you get your routine down. If it's inside I'm careful not to splash. If it's outside I go nuts. If the weather is good I use a watering can outside sometimes. But even if you are conserving water you could get real clean and rinse with the facecloth routine with just a couple a quarts total.

Which reminds me why I don't like using campground showers. Every time I do I end up with athletes foot. Any suggestions to prevent that?

Agree! I'd never use any public shower without them. Cheap ones from the dollar store, and only for the shower. I keep them in a plastic grocery bag in my shower tote.

I dislike flop flops, as they always seem to be twisting and turning under me particularly when wet (like in a shower). Also, the part about something between my toes kind of creeps me out. As a result, I use a cheap pair of Crock knock-offs ($8, WalMart). I wear them to and from the bath house and dry my feet thoroughly when I return to the trailer. Sometimes I just wipe my feet on my shaggy Australian Shepard dog, after all she is laying right there on the floor and loves the attention (kidding).

That works too. Even water shoes would work. Anything to keep you feet off that well used shower floor.

Ah, I always thought that the little fungi would get onto my feet from the water splashing off the floor whether I wore flip flops (or crocks) or not. Has anybody tried rubbing vinegar between their toes after a shower as a sort of prophylactic?

I have never contracted any kind of fungal infection from a campground shower. I always wear shower shoes of some sort, wash and rinse my feet well (last) and dry them thoroughly.


If the shower looks real bad, I keep a can of Tinactin spray in my trailer for a "Just in Case" spray when I get back to the trailer. I think I have used that 2-3 times in the past several years.

I have always work sandals to the showers, and bare feet in the shower. Never had an issue. I do wash my feet with soap last before getting out.

Teva's work great for me. Wear them to, from, and in the shower.

I can't understand the reasoning behind wearing any kind of shoe in the shower. Do you not have to take them off to scrub your feet anyway?

I shower at the gym 2-3 times a week, and rarely do you see someone with shoes going to the showers. I use campground showers when available, and have never even considered shoes inside the shower before.

If you wash your feet, there is no chance of getting anything bad growing on them, no?

Ha! Jim, it might just be the sight of the dirty showers in many Federal and State showers, the makes me want to wear my old Marine combat boots in those showers!

Seriously, I REALLY hate touching my bare feet to public shower floors! And, nothing would entice me to get into a Gym's Hot-tub or Spa!

No? No...
Here are a few links concerning avoiding staph, fungal infections (and MERSA as well) in public showers,
