  • I always shake my shoes well before putting them on - whether they are in closet or near door.
    When I taught school, I always had a lot of plants to help purify the air and I noticed we were a pretty healthy group. - 11/17/2013 8:08:18 PM

  • In Canada we always take out shoes off when entering someones home. It is proper protocol and it is good manners to do so as well.

    We feel that walking around someones house with shoes on is quite disrespectful to the carpet in ones home.

    Even small children remove their shoes as soon as they get in the door. I can not understand why people wear shoe in the house from the out of doors. It is just not proper. - 10/29/2013 10:46:05 AM
  • i think taking off your shoes right inside the door is fine too. i kept saying that i wanted to do that when i moved into my current apartment, but i'm so used to just keeping my shoes on that i never got started.

    i've been coughing quite a bit lately. guess it's time to vacuum? - 10/24/2013 6:13:30 AM
  • i always wash my sheets in bleach and hot water. Now, if I could only get my family to take off their shoes before they come in the house. - 10/12/2013 8:27:10 AM

  • Wikipedia has a list of plants for cleaning the air. Search on "List of air-filtering plants" The list has many plants that the Green Team at my office listed as air-filtering, plus others that they missed. Also toxicity of these plants. There are many other articles that you can get by searching - Wikipedia's was the most complete, and seemed not to want to sell me anything. Happy searching! - 9/30/2013 6:33:23 PM
  • Good video. But I have alot of plants in my home. What about them. - 9/24/2013 7:42:27 AM
  • When we visited in Japan, we were asked to remove our shoes when entering a home.
    I never thought about that one thing helping the air quality in our home. Sounds like a good idea! - 8/25/2013 1:45:02 PM
  • Good suggestions but some are almost impossible to do. - 8/13/2013 12:15:42 PM
