Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So my friend is visiting from the States for about 2 weeks. As people may or may not know, it's customary to take off your shoes when in a Japanese home/apartment. Now, my friend came over with sandals to visit. After about 3 days of walking around my apartment barefoot (no socks whatsoever) he makes an offhand comment about possible Athlete's foot, which pissed me off. He now has shoes and socks, but doesn't wear them much. It really pisses me off when he scratches his feet while using my computer, but he doesn't do that much anymore (that I've seen, at least... I'm at work now and he's at my place until I get home).
This isn't about whether or not I have it, it's how to clean my apartment now and make sure I don't get it, if I don't already (don't think I do, though, given the symptoms I've read online, but I'm being careful regardless). Thankfully, I have no tatami mats, just wood flooring and carpet. I did some research into how it can be spread, but not too much from the "how do I clean up this shit" point of view.
He's used my washing machine for his clothes, but that shouldn't be a big issue, right? Just so long as I don't wash something immediately after him? For the carpet, would I need to find some sort of special cleaner, or could I buy an empty spray bottle and lightly dust my carpet with isopropyl alcohol, or something? For the wood, just use some general wood cleaner, and let it dry?
