Achoo!: Shoes Off Means Less Allergies

Achoo!: Shoes Off Means Less Allergies

'Shoes track into the house everything that they've encountered outdoors. In addition to plain old dirt, this includes pesticides found in soil, pollen grains, mold spores, pet dander, and more. With all the allergens in your home already and the efforts you make to reduce them, the last thing you need to do is bring more into the house and spread them all over the place. Institute a shoes-off policy and slip on some cozy slippers instead – it's for your health!'

You are very persistent. Clearly this isn't a phase.

Nice to hear from you again, Brian.

Removing shoes at the door is what a large part of the world's population do every day. I have just put a bit more thought into it.

Yes, quite a bit more. Congratulations on your Phd. You seem to be one of very few still out here blogging of the ones I used to frequent.
