Earlier this month, we explored what happens when you and your guests wear shoes indoors, and, well, it’s gross. So we hunted around the Internet for the best boot scrapers on the market that will, at the very least, keep your floors as clean as possible if removing shoes isn’t an option. We won’t go into the nitty-gritty of the studies and wise words of the University of Colorado at Boulder’s environmental studies professor Jill Litt, who spoke to House Beautiful, but we will say this: On average, 421,000 units of bacteria, including sometimes fatal E. coli, can cling to the outside and bottoms of our shoes. So if you can’t commit to becoming a no-shoes-indoors house, you may as well invest in a boot scraper—especially if you have toddlers who spend a lot of time on the floor and putting things in their mouths. The most common material used for 19th century boot scrapers was hand-wrought iron. These early versions were usually secured permanently to an exterior stone entryway fixture, stair step, stair railing, or the side of a stone building (source: Practical Preservation Services).

A boot brush or boot scraper can only work well if it’s kept clean! Make sure to sweep away dried mud and dirt between uses. That way you’re always brushing your boots against clean bristles or a clean scraper. FAQs Where do you put a boot scraper? If you want a boot scraper that doubles as decor then this is a great option. It’s made in Germany from beautiful beechwood and tough, natural bassine fiber bristles. This boot scraper will age gracefully over time. To clean it, simply turn it over and shake out any debris. If you plan on storing your boot brush or boot scraper outdoors in all seasons, it’s important to invest in a model that will stand up to the elements. Consider boot scrapers made from iron or brushes made with pressure treated wood bases. Brush Bristle Location and Direction Don’t want a permanent boot brush or boot scraper feature in your entryway? Consider investing in a model that doesn’t require mounting to use. Alternatively, you can choose to mount your boot scraper to a piece of plywood that can be temporarily set down in your entryway during rainy and muddy seasons. Boot Scraper Best Practices Make sure the width works for your boots The best place for a boot scraper is right outside your entry door(s). If you have multiple entry doors it might be worth investing in a boot scraper outside of each entry. This way you and your guests can properly clean their shoes or boots before entering your home. How often should I brush my boots?Most boot brushes are “one size fits most” but if you have particularly wide or narrow feet then it’s worth noting the width of a boot brush before investing. If possible, test it out with the boots you’ll most often be scraping to make sure bristles can reach all sides of your boots without issue. Sweep away the mess in between uses Boot brushes that feature varied brush bristle angles do a better job of brushing mud out of the crevices around the soles and between the treads on the bottoms of your boots. Take a look at the bristle arrangement on the boot brush and invest in one that has very stiff bristles facing multiple directions. Free-Standing vs. Mounted Design
