Autumn is great for so many reasons: you can go outside without sweating buckets or freezing, football is back on TV (and pickup games are everywhere), and the leaves, while dying, turn brilliant shades of red, orange, and yellow.

Because we all spend so much time outside, and then a bunch of time inside watching games and enjoying holiday meals, we’re bound to track a lot of dirt and debris into our homes. 

Mud

Though we don’t get tons of precipitation during autumn, we get a little. In addition to the rain and the first bits of snow, the frost on our grass and trees melts each day and keeps the ground wet. None of this would be such a big deal if it didn’t happen to coincide with kids returning to school. Recess is going to bring a lot of mud into your home every day. It might not be giant globs of sloppy, dripping mud, but a much more innocuous form — dried mud that clings unnoticed to the bottom of pant legs and the sides of shoes that will chip and fall off everywhere in your house.

Leaves

It goes without saying that you’ll pick up the full leaves that blow into your house, but crinkly, dry leaves have the same insidious properties of mud — they get broken up into smaller pieces that easily stick to clothes and end up all over your house. Your pets are a hidden cause of this — they can come in and out of your house with leaves stuck in the fur on their legs and bellies.
