HMMM, This Could Save Me A HUGE Amount Of Grief Actually

Stick one of those out in the laundry room to keep the chips and swarf off the floor in the house.

It doesn’t seem to matter how many times I wipe my damn shoes on the rug…

  1. There are large sticky pads with about a dozen sheets on ‘em you can just stick to the floor. Peel the top one off when it gets full. Gotta be way cheaper than that, no batteries to die on you and you can stick it to the shop side if the doorway. We have them at each door to the ice at our curling club to keep the dirt off the ice. One pad lasts about 4 months or so with 7 days a week use by up to 48 people using 3 doors. The zon’s got ‘em….

  2. What p2 is describing is “clean room sticky mats.” They work, but….where they are determine how well they work.

    Inside the house doorway from your garage, you might get a few days from it because of the amount, and type, of debris on your shoe soles (not to mention your shoe soles are not made from materials designed to prevent debris adhering to them. However, at the clean room door, on the downstream side of the air shower, which is downstream from the changing room where one puts on their bunny suit, which is downstream from the “entrance and wash” room, which is downstream from the first air shower, which is downstream from the entrance room (all of which is on perforated raised foor with 80-90 FPS HEPA-filtered laminar flow from ceiling through the floor) which comes after the hallway inside the building, they work fine, mostly because there’s little left on bunny boot soles to remove at the clean room door.

    The rolling tape thing, though, looks like a cheap, simple and – maybe – practical solution. Where can I get one?


  3. I found that when wearing boots I could scrub the sole over the top of the other boot and knock off most of the chips before I left the machine area.


  4. Why don’t you just take your shoes off when entering the home, and putting them back on when leaving? I grew up in the 50-60s and while we were stationed in Japan, my Mom learned that taking off shoes was the best answer. Loafers become very popular as a result.


    • I usually have a pair of Flip Flops I wear around the house.
      It’s those Old Man Has To Pee trips in from the garage and in through the laundry room and into the bathroom that is the issue for me.
      Kicking shoes off and putting them back on just for that would be a pain in the ass.


Pansies, Trolls and Liberals are urged to flee this place.
