The World Wide Web is a black hole of funny videos, helpful lists, pretty photos, and tons of information that we use on a daily basis. While browsing on Youtube, we can’t help but click on a video uploaded by Inside Edition last year. The title alone will pique your curiosity as it talks about how dirty the bottom of our shoes are.

The three-minute clip showed Good Housekeeping’s Meaghan Murphy and two more participants taking on a dirty shoe test. Aside from highlighting the streets they walk on, it poses the question—“What kind of disgusting matter do we bring inside the home?” Inside Edition sent some of their shoes to a laboratory and the results are nasty, shocking, and alarming. Watch the full video below:

The shoes are loaded with different kinds of fungi and bacteria, some of which may cause serious infections like meningitis.

A study conducted by the University of Arizona revealed that on average, hundreds of thousands of bacteria are present on the bottom of most shoes. The mere thought of bringing home bacteria and fungi after a long day at work will surely make anyone cringe.

Maintain a clean home and keep your family safe with these tips:

  • Leave the shoes by the front door or in a designated place for your footwear. Invest in a sturdy shoe rack where you can organize your favorite pairs or assign a spot for each member of the family.
  • Before bringing your shoes inside the house, wipe your pairs with antibacterial wipes. Sneakers and rubber shoes can be washed in the washing machine as well.
  • Regularly clean and disinfect your floors to keep bacteria from spreading. Use a trusted antibacterial floor or multipurpose cleaner.
