Shower Sandals - Tips

Hello Ash,
You commented on the blog, and CC below about the shower sandals or the flip flops?
In the Middle East, many countries they give some type of shower sandal or flip flops in Hotels. What do you think, is this healthy, I mean can I get a fungus or foot problem from using a not-so-clean sandal?
I never use them, and when a person uses my sandal, to go into the shower, I am always thinking, is this a good idea?
I get skin diseases easy, and take extra care with this type of problem.

When I was in Pokhara, I moved around the hotel, and had 3 rooms in the same hotel. They all came with toilet paper, 2 towels and a bin. one had a soap.

The best hotel i stayed in whilst trekking was in Gorepani. They had a western WC, toilet brush, towels, extra blankets, soap and flip-flop/ thongs for you to wear in the shower (ok, not designed for my foot size!) a little pointless, because if everyone is using the same ones, that's no different to everyone using the floor.

In Kathmandu, in Via Via cafe, there was more storage space than any other room, and was a room for one. When the power went down for load shedding, they came to my room to give me candles and matches. I like this. I had my own, but it is a good thought.
Thank you,
