1 simple step for a cleaner home

Leave your shoes at the door!  It's something we've all been asked to do, and maybe even already do in our own homes.  Since Sam has been crawling around, I try to do this regularly, but admit that I forget sometimes!  It's a VERY good habit to have though, and an easy Spring "cleaning & greening" task that even Dr. Oz recommends!

Our shoes left at the door (although technically not the shoes I've been wearing much lately :)

Think about where you and your shoes have been today: 
A public bathroom,
On a sidewalk shared by other people that may or may not be spitting on the ground and dogs that may or may not be doing you know what on the ground,
Through the grass at the park that was (unfortunately) sprayed with some kind of chemical fertilizer
& in the alley to take out the trash!

You get my point!  Our shoes carry not only dirt, but bacteria and chemicals that we would NEVER let near our children's hand and thus mouths!  
leave your shoes


  1. We leave our shoes at the door too!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog.
    I am so happy with the BYW class! It has kept me from taking care of my daily chores here at home....

    I look forward to reading more of your blog.

  2. Hi heather! Your post really made me think how gross it is to NOT leave your shoes at the door. When I get home I go straight to my. Lost to put on slippers. I think I need to get into the habit (and my husband too) of taking them off at door. We are expecting our first child and so we have some months to make this habit stick! Thanks! So glad I read this.
