We do not want to be rude, but the thought of anyone washing toe jam away in the kitchen sink is too horrible to bear, even in a country as far away as Thailand where who knows what else could happen when the moon is shining, and the boys and girls come out to play.

Our main concern is what would happen if someone tried to do this silly thing standing on one foot, overbalanced and bumped their head. It could be safer standing on ladders – or walking on stilts so your feet stay clean and you never have this problem.
