With the arrival of covid-19 in the world, humans have discovered many new ways of disinfecting their homes, clothes, and any other thing that can bring the virus home. Covid-19 has been here for a very long time now and there is no way that the virus is going to end soon here. Disinfecting everything before entering the home is a good way of avoiding viruses from coming home. The most common things that can bring viruses are clothes, hands, shoes, and other things that come along with you at home. All the other things can be disinfected easily like you can wash your hands, sanitize your clothes or disinfect your other things quite easily. But when it comes to shoes there are fewer options available to sanitize them or avoid them from bringing viruses at home. However, there are certain ways by which you can sanitize or disinfect your shoes easily, and here are some of those ways listed here.
Washing Your Shoes
The best way to disinfect your shoes or sandals after coming to your home is by washing them off with liquid soap, detergent or putting them in a washing machine to wash and dry. You can do this easily anytime but the biggest con is that it will take time to dry up especially in hilly, cold areas where temperatures are down most of the time. But so far this is the best thing that you can do to wipe off all the dust, impurities, and bacterias from your shoes. Just remove your shoes outside the room and take them in with your hands and wash them. Although it is time consuming that you have to wash your shoes every day if you are a working person. Washing them completely removes all the toxins from your footwear but keep at least 2 spare pieces of footwear that you can wear in the next few days.
Using Alcohol-Based Disinfectants
Another great way of disinfecting your shoes or sandals is by using alcohol-based products to sanitize them or using disinfectant sprays over them to make sure they are free from bacteria and viruses. This is a more convenient way of disinfecting your shoes before entering your or anyone’s house but sometimes some alcohol products also contain bleach as a major ingredient and this is why when you directly spray them over your shoes or sandals, the look and texture of shoes and sandals are destroyed by the alcohol products. However, this thing never can be done sometimes but avoid spraying them all the time. Apart from using liquid sanitizers, you can use disinfectant sprays as they are safer and less damaging to your footwear.
Utilizing Shoe Sanitizer Mats
The best way according to us is utilizing the shoe sanitizer mats at homes to avoid any washing and spraying of sanitizers to your footwear. Shoe sanitizer mats can sanitize your shoes or any footwear before entering any house and you don’t have to remove that footwear outside the house. You don’t have to wash them every day, your shoes or footwear are not going to be harmed due to alcohol-based products. These benefits make these mats a perfect option for everyone as they can be used at every home. You don’t have to ask your guest to remove their shoes outside and when you go out of your house, you don’t have to waste your time washing them every day.
