There’s no off season when it comes to germs, allergens and bacteria so shouldn’t you make sure you have something to fight them day in, day out?

Dr. Doormat DM1824CH Antimicrobial Doormat Charcoal Gray, Small
Dr. Doormat introduces the DM1824GY Antimicrobial Doormat Charcoal Gray, Small which is antimicrobial treated to help destroy harmful allergens, bacteria, dust mites and more from an obvious place that is seemingly forgotten about…the soles of your shoes. Think about all the stuff that comes into contact with the bottom of your shoes on a normal day. Now when you get home what do you do? Walk inside on your carpet, hardwood floors, all over the house spreading bacteria and other microbes with each passing step before eventually taking your shoes off.

With the Antimicrobial treated Doormat you can effectively destroy up to 99% of those unwelcome microbes by simply wiping each shoe at least twice on the doormat upon or before entering your home. Here’s how it works, the microbes are negatively charged living organisms while the antimicrobial treatment on the doormat is positively charged. The positive charge means that as you wipe your feet the doormat will act almost as a vacuum by pulling the microbes from the soles of the shoe and down onto the mat. Now, you may say “I already have a doormat so why do I need this one?” A common doormat acts as a breeding ground for bacteria and microbes to collect and grow. Every time you step on your common mat to wipe, you’re wiping off the daily collection and simply re-contaminating the soles of your shoes. Your shoe then acts as a springboard, transferring the microbes into your home and spreading it all around. Read more
