Leave Your Shoes at the Door!

iStock_000010347683Small.jpg.w180h120One of the most common ways to introduce bacteria into your household is by wearing shoes inside your house. According to NaturalSolutionsMag.com “Researchers at the University of Arizona discovered that 90 percent to 99 percent of the 800,000 units of bacteria found on shoe soles, including coliform bacteria and E. coli, can enter your living space after coming into contact with uncontaminated surfaces, like clean kitchen and bedroom floors.” To reduce the risk, you can do things like putting your non-leather shoes through the wash and taking your shoes off at the door.
