So by hosing down the pad you are avoiding getting stuff on the bottom of your shoes.

I think if it was just DW and me I wouldn't worry about it so much, but with kids that spend a lot of time on the floor playing around I choose to disinfect by shoes as much as I can before going in. I just do in dump stations since who know what's lingering like e coli, etc.

Funny you say that. I was thinking the same thing. A remote control arm like the one in the space shuttle. LOL

I also thought about how we used to have full service gas stations. Have a full service dump station. In State Parks, inmates will be employed.

You could also use Lysol or some of the other brands that kill 99.9% of cooties. We love Clorox Anywhere because it's cheap, doesn't smell, doesn't stain, and cooties hate it.

As a submariner that has eaten in the galley after inadvertently blowing poo through out the galley when a valve lineup was messed up, I am not the best person to ask this question to. We were finding poo in there for weeks after that debacle.

LMAO. I've had a couple of submariner friends that can tell you some stinky stories.

It can get pretty horrible. Only had that happen about 3 times throughout my submarine career. Makes it entertaining and strengthens the immune system.

OH CRAP (pun intended) OC! This thread has just made me realize that because I've never used Chlorox wipes, gloves, shoe covers, hazmat suits, etc over the last 40 years of camping I've lost my hair, my eyesight is failing, my hearing is going bad and my boys have ONLY lived to be 37 and 34 after crawling around on the dirty floor. OH NO...just thought too that we never wiped our dog's feet either before entering the RV. And one can only imagine what kind of crap (there's that word again) he has been out and walked in. (Just having some fun folks, please don't get upset with me.)

And other services call it the MESS!!! (and had flame throwers for just such a problem)

George Carlin used to say that since he swam in the East River as a kid he was immune to pretty much everything.

alparmer what clorox are you talking about. They make many different sprays and they have clorox bleach. How long to you wait till you go in the trailer. Most of the disinfectants you need to let the spray stay on the surface for several minutes for the product to disinfect. I also agree that you can be too clean. Do you not take you shoes off when you go into the trailer?
