    Clean my place from top to bottom every Sunday night. No dirt on my floors.

    think of all the dust and dirt clingy-s that will stick to you ass and taint if you fuck on the bare wood floors.

    Hardwood floors get dirty very quickly...do you expect him to give his floors a 1-hour vacuum and scrubdown every day?
    From what? I have hardwood in most areas. I use one of those elongated microfiber wipe/mop things once a week and they stay spotless. Only thing that bugs me is that I can see footprints sometimes in certain light, so out comes the microfiber again.

    You can get them clean enough so that you can walk on them barefoot the entire day with getting your feet dirty?

    Perfect excuse for buying several pairs of high-end slippers. And also wearing loafers, boat shoes, and flip flops around the house.

    As long as the floors are clean then barefoot is the way to go. If you live in a cold climate then you may opt to wear slippers during the winter months. Enjoy life! Be free and relaxed in your own home.

    +1 on clean the floors. FWIW my place is cleaned once a month and I don't do anything else to maintain it really but walk around barefoot all the time with no problems.

    we have hardwood floors. although i generally never walk around barefoot -- on any surface -- i sometimes lazily walk to the kitchen or the bathroom in the middle of the night barefooted.

    i wouldn't make a habit of it, though. feet get dirty/stinky, and you may rip one of your toes off on a really bad stub.

    Alternatively you could just wear shoes.

    Asian wife = no Shoes in the House!
    Seriously get some slippers.


    I have a lot of asian friends and they don't really "get it" with the wearing shoes indoors thing. I almost feel relieved when I go over to someone new's place (all of my real friends pretty much have at least one asian or otherwise shoe-hater per apartment) and realize that people are still wearing shoes.

    I am ok with socks or shoes...but in the summer when a lot of people are wearing sandals or sockless shoes, the bare feet gross me out more than shoe soles ever would. Obviously if your shoes are dirty...don't wear them. But otherwise, the soles of your shoes are probably no worse than your gross ass feet after walking around on your hardwood floors.

    Interesting. I will try a better mop.

    As I said at the beginning mopping alone will not clean your floors. Your just swirling the dirt around. While the floors are still wet go over them with a large beach towel.

    Give it a try and you will see it works wonders.
