I have one of those boot cleaner brush thingys that sits on the porch. Works okay, but I still bring stuff in the house. I actually clean more stuff off my boots after I use the boot cleaner by just scruffing my boots on the flat outdoor carpet by the door.
I've seen the astro turf looking mats and the straw type mats too, wondering if you all found the perfect boot cleaner mat that actually works well getting crud from boot treads and doesn't fall apart after 1st use.
I have TSC, Rural King, Lwoes, Home Dropout, Menards, etc.
