Who doesn’t like to keep a clean home? Yet many of us overlook one simple item that can help in managing dirt and debris in our homes…

What is it? Keep reading to find out!

Every home should have a doormat. If you want to take home cleanliness to the max, opt for two: one outside the door, and one inside.

Why do they matter? It’s pretty simple: shoes are the number one culprit when it comes to tracking grime and dirt into the house. Not only does this make for dirty, gritty floors, grime can also be released into the atmosphere to land on all surfaces, contributing to a dirtier home overall.

Some people opt to change shoes entirely at the door, keeping a special pair of ‘home only’ shoes. This is, of course, an immensely effective dirt management strategy but you don’t need to take it that far.

Simply add a mat – and encourage all the family to use it. Doormats will even help minimise the dirt dragged in by four-legged family members. Just don’t forget to shake it off regularly!
