"For some taking your shoes off at the door may seem like a hassle, but it’s definitely an easy way to avoid germs getting into your home.
A recent study led by researchers at the University of Houston has shown that 26.4 per cent of shoes carry Clostridium difficile, which can give you diarrhoea and stomach cramps.
Another study from 2015 claims 40 per cent of shoes carry Listeria monocytogenes, which is disgusting to think about.
But it gets worse. If you work on a farm or you've had a little stroll through farmland there’s a pretty good chance your shoes are covered in E coli according to a 2014 study.
It’s horrible to think germs like that are all over your floor at home."
