What to do when you step in....

Thats right....dog ****. Do you throw the shoes out? Attempt to clean them with wooden shish ka bob skewers and a tootbrush after hosing them down, followed by a soaking of the bottoms w 409 cleaner? I will say...I am now the owner of 2 pairs of 💩 shoes which I can never wear in the house again. This has me thinking of a small business idea...

    I use a bigger brush. Lots of soap if the shoes can handle it. Handle brush used to clean the tires on the car. Yep lots of hose spray and soap afterwards on the brush.

    I have a few like that by me as well. The area around us has more self-important jackwagons per square meter than anywhere else on the planet.

    My flip flops go through the wash. They are what I wear for the most part, because I don’t like wearing sneakers unless I’m doing more than just walking around. Sneakers get a hose, and a piece of mulch to try and get it out, because mulch is right there by the hose. :)

    No, I don’t. :)
    I only use sneakers for playing sports and such. And, you’d be surprised by how well a small piece of mulch, “sharpened” on the sidewalk, gets that [email protected] (literally) out of shoes.
    And, I don’t usually step in dog ****. I haven’t stepped in it for probably over 2 years now, and counting. For me, that is 3 pairs of shoes. (I keep needing bigger ones. :D )

    Dang man a garden hose does wonders. There is much worse to step in. How about your kid playing in the new tar they put in the road then walked throughout the house? Po op is trivial compared to that. Yea that night i was just about to be down one son..... those shoes never seen daylight again.

    Then do you throw the washing machine away? (or do you use the dishwasher).

    I would rather use a stick and some mulch. Just leave the shoes outside the front door for a few days and only put them on when you leave the house. After a few days of walking they will be clean enough to take inside.

    One approach is to scrape the big chunks off on a curb and then go for a walk and scoot feet through the grass along the way. They should be clean of residue after a few miles but neighbors may think someone walking in circles like that in their neighborhood has been fighting the bottle and lost the battle.

    True story....last year I was at a kids party at a huge, beautiful house hosted by a retired Exec. of Coke. They had one of those little yappy dogs who pooped outside and I unknowing stepped in it with my Vans. I then proceeded to walk through their beautiful house with **** on my shoe...didnt even know it until I got back in my car and could smell the small nugget stuck on my shoe.

    Weather permitting . I am a lover of Crocs. Soles clean up real easy from dog poo. I own several pairs. A funny story a guy at work told me. His brother was at a wedding reception and took his Crocs off to shake it on the dance floor. And someone stole his Crocs. Peace. D

    When I was a kid, three different times over the years random dogs cocked up their legs and "urinated" on my legs. One time I was flying a kite. Guess I was kind of slow. Maybe they thought I was a tree.

    Far worse than...I cant think of much except maybe the human version or a dead corpse of some time (how timely for 🎃)
  • Tony MTony M Posts: 6,275
    If I stepped into a decaying dead corpse, I'd throw away my shoes and my clothes that I surely would've hurled on.
    Besides that, I hear the smell might permeate the clothes anyway.
