💥 Hate to break it to you but …
… if you wear your shoes out of the house, there’s a good chance there’s poop on them. 💩
Even if you never knowingly step in it!
Pretty gross. This is why it’s a good idea to think about going shoe-free in your house! (Preferably beginning in your entryway.)
Get this: scientists had people wear brand-new shoes for two weeks and then they sampled the shoes for bacteria.
The transfer rate of bacteria from shoes to clean tiles ranges from 90% to 99%!!! 😳
Other studies have found a wide range of harmful bacteria on shoes, ranging from E. coli and C. diff to those linked with pneumonia … not to mention pesticides and other chemicals.
I have not had this policy in our house, but after discovering this information, I am going to start! I always say, "Know better do better!" Just like I wasn't aware of all the hidden chemicals in my home and personal care products until it was brought to my attention. We don't know what we don't know!
