No matter the season, we wear shoes outside and many then walk right into their homes. Remember, to each his own, however, what you might be dragging in on your favorite shoes might have you rethinking keeping those shoes on?
In a single day, your shoes might visit, a grocery store, a few public bathrooms, a gas station, multiple stores, and an office space. Don’t forget to take into account that your shoes walk through public parking lots and shelter your feet from water, mud, dirt, gravel etc.
As a travel writer, I can personally attest to wearing my shoes through jungles, waterfalls, hiking zones, and really busy city streets. Imagine what is on the bottom of those shoes! Ewww!
For all those with the No Shoes in the house policy, you might reconsider this. You gotta read about the shoes that keep your floors clean!
SHOES THAT KEEP YOUR FLOORS CLEAN
Let’s keep this simple and doable. If I provide you the inside scoop on the shoes that keep your floors clean will you use it? Would it solve the black scuffs going across your floor? Might you consider stopping your NO SHOE Policy in the house?
Perhaps it could it save you from dashing across the kitchen when you see your child crawling on a floor you know is dirty?
Why is it dirty? It is dirty because you do not have shoes that keep your floors clean. What your baby is potentially putting their hands and face on as they attempt to crawl and fall along the way is dirtier than any bathroom stall floor.
It’s true. When you cross over your kickplate threshold from the outside into your home, and if your shoes are on, you’ve just brought in bacteria beyond anything you could have imagined.
A Day In The Life Of… All Of Us
Recap your day. Today once out the door, with a stop at the gas station to fill up your car before work. Chances are someone has spit on the ground with a nice big loogie. You didn’t even notice it, but you stepped in it! Your shoe took one for you!
Next, you run into that same station to order a special Coffee, and while they are crafting it you run into the restroom. Bonus Points for dirt, and bacteria here! Wow, your shoes are on a roll, gathering up the world’s supply of bacteria, and dirt!
Now, let’s talk about the walk from your parked car at work, to the actual office facility? Let’s just say for a minute you have a 5 minutes walk. Alright, your shoes will walk through puddles, gravel, dry dusty dirt, maybe gum, and potentially more spit! D0 we even continue on what else you might have stepped in? I think we will skip that discussion.
Maybe we should talk about restaurant shoe bottoms. Have you ever been in one that no matter the sole of your shoe, you are still slipping when walking through? It’s like the Mop sat in the kitchen fryer and then was used to oil the floors. Congrats, you are taking that oily mess home as well, but there’s more!
Time For Home – And Shoes That Keep Your Floors Clean
While your day has continued beyond the walk to the office, you get the idea. At the office, you might be picking up hair (we all shed), skin, picked scabs, am I getting graphic enough. Have you EVER considered all of this?
What we really don’t want is the dirt that is attracted to the soles of our shoes coming into our homes because often this dirt and debris also are accompanied by germs, bacteria, sometimes stains, sometimes gum and who knows what else comes in on the bottom of shoes. this is something that I learned that makes me happy when I think about the shoes and my floors!
Is It The Shoe? Really?
Whether it’s those Adam Tucker, Acorn, On The Anna, Antelope, Sperry, Brookes, Bostonian, Calvin Klein, Chooka, Clark’s, Jimmy Choo, it is not about the brand of shoe.
The shoe is the relevant dirt and germ magnet. However, there it is the footwear you are wearing that actually will keep your floors clean! What? Wear them, but first, you gotta know what to do!
You Don’t Have To Give Up Your Shoes
The process is quite simple, no matter what pair of shoes you own or your children own. It is possible to keep those floors clean, germ-free. Additionally, once you implement this into your life, your white socks will stay white when you walk across your floors!
One small catch here: you are going to have to Steam Mop your floors to rid it of all the dirt and bacteria you have already tracked in! That’s easy and so worth it for your health and the sake of your white sock bottoms!
SHOES THAT KEEP YOUR FLOORS CLEAN ARE YOUR OWN!
It is as simple as this, buy a jar of Lysol wipes or Clorox wipes. Open it. Take off your shoes when you get in the door. Wipe them off from side to side on the soles and edges. Allow the shoes to dry. Then go ahead and wear them!
All it takes is the simple wipe of sanitizing wipes or a cloth with some antibacterial disinfectant like a Lysol. Alternatively, you can use an alcohol mixture we use that is 90% rubbing alcohol to 10% water and a drop of dishwashing soap. Spray the base of the shoe or a cloth/paper towel and wipe your shoes down.
This is a habit we have all gotten used to in our home. Once at the door threshold, we take off our shoes and use the canister of wipes at the doors’ side. It is a few seconds to freedom from bacteria we don’t want on our hard floor surfaces and certainly don’t want to be tracked onto our carpets.
You will see a great difference if you were walking around your house with white socks and not picking up the dirt that your shoes ones left. Carpets will not become stained unless of course, you have food going in there or pets going to the bathroom on them.
These are all shoes to keep your floors clean, so as you can see, no matter the brand, the style, or the person wearing them, we all have shoes that can keep your floors clean. Now I have provided you all with Shoes that Keep Your Floors Clean and it is so easy! Adventure. Eat. DIY. Repeat. germ-free, in fashion, and style, which shoes this is Dana
