Daily Cleaning Tip: Stop Tripping Over Shoes

A cleaning tip a day by Stylelist Home's cleaning and organizing experts Stacey Platt and Sarah Hayon of DwellWell NYC.

If footwear clogs your entryway, two things are required: adequate storage and a limit on how many pairs of shoes each family member can store there. Try placing shoe cubbies in an entry closet or along a wall. Wet shoes and boots need a landing place. Rubber grids on top of a drip tray will elevate footwear to ensure that it won't sit in a puddle of dirty water.
