No More Dirty Shoe Germs with Dr. Doormat - Our Review

#Sponsored By Dr. Doormat

Raising my family in the country, where getting dirty is part of every child's daily agenda, keeping clean carpets and low germ levels can be pretty tough. You would think that with me having 2 daughters that they wouldn't get real dirty often or play in the mud on a rainy day but that's not how it goes. Jade and Loran LOVE mud! They will ruin a new outfit in just a couple of hours if I let them go outside in it. Running around in the yard, climbing trees, running up and down out dirt and gravel driveway.... My house sees alot of dirt and grime!!

I was super excited when I got the opportunity to try out a new Mommy-Made doormat called Dr. Doormat, that reduces the amount of germs we carry into our home on the bottom of our shoes. Living off the back roads in Candler, I could definitely use the extra help!

What is Dr. Doormat?

Dr. Doormat is the first antimicrobial treated doormat designed for home use. The mat is infused during the manufacturing process with a specially formulated antimicrobial treatment that permanently bonds to the fibers of the doormat and cannot be tracked through your home. Dr. Doormat looks attractive and is a great addition for all entrances of your home. You can even use them at litter boxes and at dog beds or cages! They start working as soon as your shoe (or paw) touches the mat, instantly killing the germy bacteria.

Dr. Doormat is also Eco-Friendly!!

I was also very surprised to find out that Dr. Doormat is Eco-Friendly! Debbie Greenspan traveled all over the globe to discover the highest quality and most environmentally safe materials to create the Dr. Doormat. She was on a mission to make her home as healthy as possible for her young kids. She wasn't willing to make any compromises on quality and wouldn't even consider hurting the planet a tiny bit. Even the resin and pigment are non-toxic!! I LOVE IT!

Dr. Doormat comes in 4 different colors:
  • Charcoal Gray
  • Chocolate Brown
  • Peacock Blue
  • Autumn Red
I chose Autumn Red, I love the deep red tone. My fiance and I have always used deep red in our home decor. I also like the name of "Autumn Red".... It kind of makes me feel like it was made for me since we share the name Autumn :-)

We started using our Dr. Doormat as soon as it came in the mail. I have to admit that the first thing I did was take off my shoes to see how it felt on my bare feet. I couldn't help myself, the design looked really cool and I wanted to see if it felt as cool as it looked. I was NOT disappointed... It felt awesome!
I also like the little silver corner plate that says Dr. Doormat, it looks professional and it's not an unattractive paper tag hanging from the side of the doormat. The design fits in with our regular decor perfectly and don't stick out like some of the other ones that you can find in stores and can be a real eye-sore.

After placing Dr. Doormat at our front door, it became a natural thing to wipe our feet before we continued on throughout the house. It says to wipe your feet on the Dr. Doormat atleast twice for best results. My daughters made sure to make it a point to say "Make sure you wipe your feet, Mommy!" She would repeat herself almost every time we walked through the door for the first couple days.

We've been using Dr. Doormat for a few weeks now and my floor has been noticeably cleaner. I can't tell if our bacteria level is down but we haven't been sick and that always a plus! We're extremely happy with our new doormat and I've already started telling my friends about it. I don't plan on changing doormats for a long time. I've found the prefect doormat for Mom's and Families and I'm shouting it out to the world!!

Dr. Doormat is a "must have" home environmental tool for any Family with young kids. They spend most of they time in the floor and we don't want them collecting all those yucky germs that we carry in on our shoes each and every day.
