Shower Etiquette

When you shower do you scrub your feet, top and bottom, with soap? Or are you of teh belief that you don't need to since all the soap that you used on the rest of you body will make it's way down to your feet and clean them as well.

Did something in particular spark this question?

Even-though the soap will make its way down to your feet, naturally, it's not going to actually clean your feet since it won't scrub them. It would just be superficial.

I personally believe feet need scrubbing. But you may find a rayah (proof) in that the Cohanim in the Beit Hamikdash only had water poured over top of their hands and feet, no scrubbing needed. If it is good enough for God, it should be good enough for you too. Right?

But then again, the Cohanim worked barefoot, so their feet probably smelled much less than our sock/shoe confined feet.

...but then again, the kohanim weren't necessarily cleaning their feet because of dirt, but rather because that's what the torah says to do. Remember, the beit haMikdash was a slaughterhouse, and they were constantly walking around veritable rivers of blood.

Oh, and you need to scrub your feet. Otherwise they won't get clean.
