    I wear Crocs then I rinse my feet and shoes at the same time, I don't do digging (well apart from digging up parsnips and JA's) so its fine for me to garden in them.

    Is there a route into your house which doesn’t involve carpet?
    We go in via garage. Remove shoes and muddy clothes in garage, muddy clothes straight into washing machine, wash feet in bucket of water if needs be (‘outside’ tap is in garage-v handy!), then straight upstairs to shower

    I thought I was a mucky gardener but ^^^^^
    I just kick off my garden shoes and select a rain washed pair from the fence for the house.

    I do like to get stuck in sometimes.... but normally only hands and knees get muddy!
    That said, if Iím building dry stone walls in rain, or digging v deep holes such as for gateposts, then muddy from chest down is to be expected

    I have to go via carpet to get in, I normally leave my shoes and socks outside before I come in,but my feet are filthy, il try the crock/lidl or wilko crock version, and wash my feet before I get in somehow, or the carpet will be changing colour soon

    How about an old pair of flipflops that you can slip on before your feet touch the carpet?
    I'm curious how your feet get filthy. Are you a barefoot gardener?
