no. we have them in both our toilets but I just can't be bothered

yes. walking to the toilet with a cold wet floor in the middle of the night is never a pleasant experience, especially if you're still half asleep.

No need, we clean the toilet instead. lol

No. We had them in the past but nobody actually bothered (the room is a simple and cramped toilet + wash-hand basin), so we ditched them and only put them occasionally back again in case of visitors in case they want to be bothered.

no.why?

We have them, but they're too small for my feet so I don't bother.

No need, we mop our floor and keep the toilet clean.

No, because when a gaijin starts using toilet slippers it's a sure sign he has gone too native, or, as the Aussies say, "gone troppo".

Uh, what? No.

2 ( +4 / -2 )

Yes.

-5 ( +1 / -6 )

No.

If I had a freezing cold toilet with an even colder tiled floor, I might consider it. As it is, we live in a house that's well insulated and has a modern wooden floor that continues into the toilet.

2 ( +5 / -3 )

Nope and never will.

If they sold them in large size, I might, but 1/2 on 1/2 off my big flopping feet-no point

2 ( +4 / -2 )

Nah I just go in the sink anyway

Pretended for wife’s peace of mind when we first moved to Japan but like the other real men here, don’t actually wear them. They are still there for visiting guests to use.

No. What for?

Wondering if @cleo’s upstairs cat has four tiny slippers or hovers au naturel?

Au naturel, of course. We don't have any loo slippers in wor hoose.

No, I'd forget to take them off too often. I get why people have them, if they're plastic. Cloth material ones are nasty though.

Bedpan.
