[] Fwd: Here's Why You Should Never Wear Shoes Inside Your House


In many countries and cultures, it's not acceptable to walk about the house in your dirty sneakers, but in the USA, it's a lot more common than you'd think. However, there are a number of reasons why you should take your shoes off at the front door. If you don't have a no-shoes policy in your house, the following 7 reasons as to why you should might just change your mind.


Shoes - Leave - Door

1. Bacteria
Harmful bacteria can survive on your shoes for many weeks at a time. A study conducted by The University of Arizona found nine different strains of bacteria on the shoes that they tested, and an average of 421,000 bacteria on each shoe. Do you really want to be walking all those germs through your lovely house?

2. Dirt
Shoes spend most of the day on our feet, walking through dirty environments. Your children drag in mud from the park. You track in soil from the garden or from mowing the lawn. Who wants all that bacteria-rich dirt inside the house? Furthermore, do you really want to spend your free time having to keep cleaning the floors? Therefore, apart from having a no-shoes policy, consider buying some floor mats to help remove some of that dirt off your shoes before entering your home.

7. Foot Health


Wearing shoes all the time can lead to severe foot pain, while going barefoot, especially at home, can exercise dormant muscles in the feet and legs and help to improve blood flow. Therefore, free your feet when at home for fewer aches and pains.

As you have seen, there are plenty of reasons why the Japanese and many other cultures have adopted the policy of leaving shoes at the front door, or why so many others are making the switch. It may be a bit awkward asking your guests to take off their shoes before entering your home, but with these 7 reasons at hand, they should at least understand why you're so insistent.
