If working on your homestead leaves your boots covered in mud, this tutorial to help you build a boot scraper may be just what you need to keep that mud out of the house. Scrub brushes screwed to your steps are perfect for cleaning shoes and boots to keep from tracking dirt in the house. Scrub brushes with a plastic body won’t rot and last longer than wooden brushes.
