Remove Shoes?

This great little sign from sashayin on etsy is the perfect thing to have by your front door.

There are many reasons to remove your shoes before going inside one's house. The main one is cleanliness. By removing your shoes at the door, you leave dirt, allergens and yuck at the door instead of tracking it all over the house. By leaving these pollutants at the door and not welcoming them in -- the rate of allergies and other yuck in the house is hugely reduced. Who doesn't want that?

Here are some translations of this simple phrase to be sure anyone who shows up at your door gets the message.

please remove your shoes
enlevez s'il vous plaît vos chaussures
por favor quite sus zapatos
entfernen Sie bitte Ihre Schuhe
por favor retire os seus sapatos
пожалуйста удалите ваши ботинки
してくださいあなたの靴を脱ぐ
Si prega di togliere le scarpe
