These Whimsical Doormats Invite Guests to Leave Dirty Shoes at the Front Door

By now, it’s no secret you shouldn’t be wearing street shoes inside your home. Studies have found that bacteria, including those that cause sores, blisters and even illnesses, can live on the soles of shoes after you’ve been outside in them. To help protect your personal spaces from these intrusions, there are a range of fun doormats that remind both family and friends to leave their dirty shoes at the front door. For an extra dose of cleanliness, these mats can be machine washed or rinsed off with a garden hose. Here, FN has curated a range of novelty mats that both invite or scare guests away.
