While most people don’t wear shoe covers inside their own homes, we think it’s important to have a stash available for visitors and workers. Even if you immediately sweep and mop your floors after entertaining, you’ll still likely end up with more germs than if you had asked your guests to slip on a pair of shoe booties. 

 

We also suggest taking your shoes off at your front or garage door. About 90% of bacteria on your shoes can be transferred to the floor of your home, so if you aren’t wearing shoe covers, we highly recommend taking your shoes off to avoid tracking germs and other contaminants into your home. With a few small daily changes and chores, you can help provide a safer and more sanitary environment for your family.
