How to inact a no shoe policy in my house?

I just spent 2 hours on my hands and knees this morning scubing gum off my floor that my HUSBAND tracked in. I have spoken the no shoe policy and I have put a chair next to the front door (the door most commonly used). Any other ideas?

  • Every time someone comes in the house. Tell them. "TAKE YOUR SHOES OFF"
    You might want to inform every one of the policy.

  • Use a quarter jar theory. Every time they come in with shoes they put in a quarter. It worked with me for swearing. Good luck

  • Put a sign on the door that says, "Please remove shoes before entering"? Provide slippers to put on when the shoes are removed. Or there are even those little disposable thingeys that you can buy to put on over your shoes, so he could wear those when he wants to keep his shoes on. I'm not sure where you get those, but my son who is an engineer, had them on the other day because he had been out to a muddy construction site. Look on the internet. I'm sure you can find them. Doctors and nurses wear them, too, so somebody has to mass produce them.

  • IDK, people automatically remove in my house, done it since day one :) We have a wood show rack that they go on, and people see it and just do it :)
