5 Simple Tips To Keep Your Tile Clean and Fresh

Tile may be relatively easy to clean, but it is still a good idea to take your shoes off and ask others to do so.

I've come across this site

One part of the piece in particular caught my attention:

"The ICU was luckily a bit more clean than the rest of the hospital (which is not saying much), but I was truly shocked when we had to leave our shoes at the door. Granted, in India, it's thought that shoes are absolutely filthy and must be left outside before entering homes, temples, and even some shops. But to do this when entering a hospital wing?!? "

The writer was shocked at having to take his/her shoes off when entering a hospital in India. I don't know what you think, but if we had a custom like this in the UK, it is likely that far fewer patients would die of the MRSA bug

Yes, removing shoes in hospitals is very common in India and in Japan too.

Seems a good idea. In Japan, you would be given slippers. I suppose they would probably give you slippers if they did it here in the UK.

I remeber seeing an Indian hospital on television when I was younger. It was apparent from the programe that people had to remove their shoes in the hospital. I remember thinking that was really stupid and silly.
