Splashing? I don't know, the sink was there, and it just seemed easier. It was closer to the washing machine, too (where the socks had to go) I'd do it that way again.

I am puzzled by this poll, as it doesn't seem like a big deal to me either way. Why not use the washing facility that conveniently suits your needs? I can't see any reason why feet shouldn't be washed in a sink, unless you find it awkward to raise your leg that high, or your sink is too small to fit them, or similar practical details. I can't think of any reason not to wash feet in the tub or shower, either.

I don't see why you need to confuse this thread with logic

Yeah, that was the thought I was having too. I thought it was praying, but I'm not sure.

I think the question is caused by the fact that feet are generally far less germ-ridden than hands and teeth, and thus aren't filthy enough for the standard bathroom sink.

Ok it's like this: washed feet are warm feet. Maybe dried sweat conducts too well from the salt. I can't sleep with cold feet.

Not sure if this is true. But the toilet seat is also supposed to be quite clean. Would you store your toothbrushes down beside that?
