Is this sanitary?

I just found out my wife has been washing/scrubbing her feet in one of our large plastic food bowls, and then washing it by hand, and then using it again for food.

Is this sanitary? I say it's not. She disagrees.

Who's right?

I personally would at the very least pour a lot of boiling water into the bowl. I mean what if she has a fungus? Probably not but I wouldn't chance it. And how would guests feel if they knew they were eating behind her foot bath? Won't your family feel the same way? Go to a restraunt supply store and get her a bussing tub. They are around $10.00 and that should a stop any arguements.

Umm well, it depends on how well she washes it I guess, bleach would make me feel better. I used to let my dogs lick the plates before I put them in the dishwasher, but the dishwasher does a good job of sanitizing.

It would gross me out. Buy her a plastic tub for her feet. and keep a spray bottle of diluted bleach for sanitation purposes.

When I was married to my first husband I used a big heavy pot that he had already owned, to make stew, chili, soup, etc. It wasn't until we had been married about a year that I found out that he also used it to soak his feet, and he used it if he was sick to his stomach (no need to explain further, I hope!). I never cooked with that pot again.

When I was a kid my Dad would always have a crisp, white hanky in his pocket, washing machines and powder was not very effective, she would boil them. They went on hols and my Gran came to stay, you can fill the rest in.
