Okay so this MAY not be the right spot for me to post this... But if anyone has any advice for me that'd be great. So my husband and I have 6 dogs (I know, hoarders right) 6 BIG dogs at that, who are all treated like our children, have their own bedroom and come in and go out as they please. Well with that being said, they bring in a LOT of dirt. Hair isn't so much of an issue. Mainly the dirt. Well, we also have a human child on the way... and I can't just throw my dogs out... but I don't feel it's sanitary to have a child in a house with this much dirt. I sweep twice a day - everyday (okay sometimes I don't but mostly I do) and get a dustpan full of dirt each sweeping. Also in their bedroom, I guess the dirt off their coats flies through the air and settles on things. So I have to wipe their whole room down twice a week. Basically, I'm asking if anyone has any sort of magical potion I can use to make this easier.. I've tried wiping their paws off at every entry, not only is that a task with one 40 lb and five 65-100 lb babies but it just doesn't work that great. I've tried door mats - and still use door mats but it doesn't catch it all. Does everyone with dogs have this issue?! I guess this is more of a rant post but if ANYONE HAS ANY solutions PLEASE feel free to post them here.
