Happy Tuesday. I hope that everyone had an amazing & happy Tuesday. I just wanted to talk to you guys about something I feel SO strongly about and that is absolutely positively NO shoes in the house! I know I may sound crazy but I feel like there are a lot of people out there that agree with me.
I just remember in the house I grew up in, my mom was really big on this. We were never allowed to wear our shoes in the house and I totally agreed with her.
Guys , for one think of how dirty shoes are and all of the dirt and bacteria your shoes touch in a given day & then just like dragging that into your home ??
I habitually and routinely clean our home and always make sure it spotless. Imagine cleaning your floors just to have them trampled on with dirt & grime?
For me , it’s a habit whenever I enter someone’s house to remove them. It’s important and just shows respect in my opinion.
We do have the occasional guest who doesn’t remove their shoes and when they enter the home and it’s just a little awko. I never know how to tell them to take them off without coming off as being mean or rude.
This past weekend I bought this fab oversized vintage looking chalkboard from Pier 1 that I plan to write cute themed messages on for whatever holiday , season or event is occurring that month but the top message will say please remove your shoes. I think it’s a nice way to politely get your message across.
What are your thoughts on this ? Do you guys wear shoes in the house ? Or do you ask people to remove them too? Do you remove them when you’re a guest in someone else’s home ?
