    I take them off put them in a bag, drive to the nearest Carpetland USA, put them back on and walk around the store pretending I want to buy something until I walk it off :s. I actually do the curb thing rub them in the grass, then put them up against the fence with the soiled bottoms facing me stand back about 15 feet set the hose to the stream position and let er rip.

    Ok; here's a few from the construction trades; fresh tack coat from asphalt paving will never ever come off your shoes or your carpet, fresh concrete also makes a nice mess of your shoes as does crawling down inside a manhole; no telling what you'll step into there.

    And here I thought he was just another self-important Hollywood jackwagon.

    I liked Jack Black on the "Tenacious D" show on HBO back in the late 90s. Then I saw him hosting "Saturday Night Live" and during his opening monologue, a boom mic came a little too close to his head and he acted all aggravated. I continued watching and noticed several more examples of this type of reaction.

    Ironically, he seemed to suffer from the kind of "prima donna bullcrap" that Tenacious D made fun of after he started getting more and more film roles. :/

    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. :)
    Thats it??? A hose and piece of mulch!?! Tell me you dont wear those in the house😂

    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 )
    The censored word above is P - O - O - P, not a different word. :#

    Does the mulch work for in between the toes as well? :smile:

    :s Just take a shower! :p
    I’d guess so, although I may be cautious about splinters, I’ve had one in between my toes before and it’s not fun. Hose alone may do better in that case however.

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.
