It’s a challenge to keep a home #clean when winter storms hits and people start to track in snow, ice, dirt and salt. To keep your floors pristine, institute a shoes-off policy inside the home an designate a basket to hold them when not in use, Real Simple suggests. Throw rugs, doormats and runners can help keep wetness and dirt confined to specific locations. If all else fails, create a makeshift mudroom by your home’s garage or backdoor entrance and equip it with hooks, bins, shelves and lockers for temporary clothing storage. The idea is to keep the #mess confined to an easily cleaned space.
March and April have brought snow and rain to different parts of the country. Whether you’re coming in from a hike or your child had baseball practice and is bringing dirty cleats into the house, make sure to leave shoes at the door. This will keep you from spending time cleaning mud and wet shoe prints in your home later!
