    I don't have kids yet, but I have always taken shoes off in the house. It was taught to me just like manners, like please and thank you. I still always take my shoes off at home. I usually put uggies on. We have carpet and I don't really like visitors wearing their shoes in but I will not ask them to take them off usually, I'll just whip out the stick vacuum after they go. Unfortunately I am a bit OCD and I don't like dirt on the carpet. When I go to others houses I always ask at the door. When I have kids crawling around on the carpet I will be asking people to remove their shoes.

    Like I said earlier we have bifold french doors at the back. They are open 24/7 unless we are out. No opening and shutting doors. Kids run in and out all day for so many different reasons. Toilet, drinks, get things, wash hands.

    The difference is you know how clean your own bathroom is!

    No you don't. There are so many things you can't see in a bathroom that has a toilet in it. That actually is one thing that makes me want to throw up.

    There is two of us using my bathroom which gets cleaned at least once a week..I'd much rather lick my bathroom floor then a public shopping centre one, where most people shoes have been!

    It's not the floor. Every time the toilet flushes minute amounts (probably the same on a person's shoes) of germs are thrown threw the bathroom and into every surface including toothbrushes.

    All I am pointing out is if you let everything that could possibly "poison" your environment get to you wrap yourself in cotton wool and stay home with the doors locked.

    That's why you close the lid when you flush the thunderbox!

    It's not about poisoning my environment at all, I just don't like to walk on my floor and feel dirt or see marks all over my tiles. I think that how you keep your home is a reflection of yourself. But as I said, I'm a little OCD!

    My kids are a reflection of myself. My home is just where we live.
