Do you wash in between your toes in the shower?

Everyone has their routine in the shower. But when it comes to cleaning your body, some go further than others. Many people claim that they wash every inch of their skin, including in between their toes. After walking around in sweaty socks all day, it's the only way to ensure your feet stay fresh. Others have never considered the possibility of washing between their toes–the soap trickles down to your feet anyway, cleaning your toes by default. What do you do?

According to the Institute for Preventative Food Health, you should absolutely wash between your toes in the shower. This instruction is the first and most important item on the list of ways to practice good foot hygiene. 

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.

Washing in between your toes is so essential that the IPFH lists it twice! Do as you're told and get to scrubbing.

Some people say they've never even considered washing between their toes. As one writer puts it on Reddit

Have had this debate with a friend many times over. I am a proponent of the trickle down effect (where soap/shampoo from your head and body trickle down to your feet, washing them and thereby negating the need for a dedicated soap and scrub)
My friend however believes in soaping both feet and legs. Back when we were roommates he was taking a shower, did this, slipped and brought down the shower curtain and rod.

Washing between your toes sounds like a safety hazard.

Others are devastated by the idea of cutting a shower short and skipping your toes. Imagine wearing boots all day, coming home, removing your socks, and just letting the water "wash" away all that sweat and grime. Does that work for any other part of your body? Absolutely not. Imagine doing the same for your sweaty armpits. Your toes need to be cleaned just like everything else.

This is simply a question of efficiency. There's no need to waste time and soap to get in between your toes when standing in soapy water has worked just fine for your entire life. 

According to Dollar Shave Club, you're not alone:

Turns out, 28% of [men] don’t consider it necessary to give [their] dogs a proper daily wash. Almost a further half of those decline to do it entirely, relying instead on the mix of soap and water already cascading down the body to get the job done.
1% fewer women are washing their feet every time they shower.
