Just last week my family moved into a new home. We went from 1,300 square feet of space to 3,300 square feet, which makes for so much more room to play and have fun. It also means that there is much more house to keep clean, and that, my friends, is no fun at all. We need some new processes and habits to help keep the work load to a minimum, please and thank you.
One important decision we have made is to try to keep the floors cleaner by not wearing shoes in the house. We have a home for our “daily wear” shoes right by the front door (special occasion shoes can remain in our closets). Not wearing shoes in the house makes a HUGE difference and drastically cuts down on how often we need to sweep and vacuum. It’s also better for our floors and rugs!
And there’s even a solution for our feline family members. In the past, they have certainly contributed their fair share of debris to the floors thanks to little bits of litter that are often left on their paws after using the litter box. Those little bits end up all over the house. And let’s be real, that’s pretty gross, especially if you step on them with bare feet!
Fresh Step has just come out with a low tracking litter called Fresh Step Clean Paws. I have found it easy to purchase at Walmart and have been really pleased with the results. It really seems to work, as I have noticed a decrease in the amount of litter that finds its way outside of the box, and this is all without having to sacrifice the great odor control that Fresh Step has always been known to provide.
See those clean paws? 🙂
We are now a week into living in our new house and creating our new habit of shoes off at the front door, and low tracking litter in the litter boxes. So far, it’s all working out beautifully and I have only had to vacuum and sweep once, and that was just after the movers finished up (couldn’t really ask them to take their shoes off each time they came in with a load of boxes, could I?).
I wish I had instituted this “clean paws” policy for my family in the house years ago! Do you take your shoes off as soon as you come inside? Have you tried Fresh Step Clean Paws to help reduce litter debris in your house? I’m loving it so far, and would love to hear what you think! Any other tips to share to help reduce the amount of dirt and debris in the home?
