Default Re: Hygene when Traveling

If i was on the road a little and in the habit of using permanent and shared shower facilities,and was worried about fungal infection ie tinea,i would be wandering across towards the shower block carrying my toiletries and towell,along with my own shower mat of sorts,or slat type doormat from my van or camper.It would be something to go out and purchase to especially pack with the camper or van as standard equipment,...spare tyre,gas bottle,heavy duty door mat and so on.
I'm loath to mention sheep again,but the first place i saw these things in use was in the shearing industry,at 'away sheds'.
The little timber slat platforms were nicknamed "duck boards".
It was customary at the finish of your shower to hang the platform back on the peg on the wall where you found it,to give it a chance to drip dry.
I'm sure the shearing industry didn't invent the things,as i'm pretty sure football and other sporting groups would have had them in use,and probably still do?
