DIY Doormat Boot Scraper

By: Joe Truini

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.

Start by drilling two 3/16” holes in each scrub brush.

Attach the scrub brushes to the bottom step with 1 5/8” coated decking screws.

Hose out the scraper periodically to remove dirt, and unscrew it when refinishing the steps.
