Daily Mail: Keep your shoes off the sofa, always flush the toilet and NEVER leave dishes to soak overnight: The 50 most common house rules in Britain revealed

'New research in the home lives of 2,000 people has revealed the 50 most common laws of the land, and perhaps unsurprisingly, mothers were twice as likely to have laid them down than fathers.'

'A third of people polled said they ask family and friends to take their shoes off when visiting, and in turn, three in ten have been made to feel awkward for forgetting to do the same at someone else's house.'



'Shoes off' is listed here as the third most common house rule in the UK.

A third of homes in the UK have a shoes-off policy? Not bad. In most of those thart don't shoes are more often likely to be removed anyway.

I'm pleasantly surprised that so many people are proponents of no-shoe homes across the pond. I would have guessed it to be more like how it is here in New York City, where I am part of a rather small shoes-off minority.

Also, I have followed this blog for several months now and am quite impressed with its content.

Hi Michael, thanks for making yourself known.

I've heard some people say removing shoes is rather common in New York City, but there are lots of places where I hear different accounts.
