Leave no (dust) trace in the RV - the shoe pile!

Post by DancesWithElves » Sat Aug 17, 2013 11:02 pm

Has anybody got a good setup/trick/ritual to stage or stash your playa footwear and minimize the dust that gets trampled into the RV? We like to have our floors in the RV as low on dust as possible for ease of cleaning and the ability to enjoy happy skin inside - we are not so fussy as to stay dust-free for one second outside, but the RV is our semi-clean space. Any ideas on how to deal with shoes inside/outside are most welcome! We always seem to find ourselves climbing over a pile of shoes and boots.

Thanks for any input!

You should establish a place or container to store the shoes, and then make the shoes be there.

We just leave ours in the stairwell.

And brush out the dust once a day with a broom.

There will be dust on your clothes and in your hair. Suggest a comfortable bench by the door, shelf, box whatever for the shoes, carpet on the playa by the bench, stairs and entry - that you shake and beat out a few times a day. Some people like the playatech knock down bench.
