One of the best things you can do to keep a healthy home is to kick your shoes off at the door. You don’t need scientific research to know the bottoms of your shoes can harbor dirt, grime, bacteria, fecal matter and more. But many studies have shown that shoes pick up quick-spreading bacteria and even illness-causing strains like E. coli, too. Leave your shoes at the door, resting atop sheets of newspaper. The paper will absorb excess moisture and dirt and help keep your home (and floors!) clean.
