What Is The Best Doormat For Trapping Dirt?

I love that we have a house that came with a huge yard, driveway and a creek! The front yard it literally the size of half a football field but it is right at a very busy street. Because of this, the kids are not allowed to play in the front yard. There is a creek that runs about ¾ of the way between the yard and the house and then we have just a small area of grass before you get to the house. Because we cannot really access the front door, we keep it locked. Part of the creek runs into the back yard and the kids are constantly splashing around and looking for water critters. We have a gravel driveway that butts up to the back deck. At any given time, the kids track in water, mud, grass, dirt and small bits of gravel. Our back entrance leads right into the kitchen which has a light colored vinyl floor and it shoes dirt really bad. In order to keep that dirt down, we have a huge need for a great doormat. I found that the best doormat for trapping dirt are those from Dr. Doormat.

The Best Doormat For Trapping Dirt

For the past 2 years, we have had what we thought was a good doormat in front of our back door. Honestly, I never gave much thought to how much dirt was actually getting tracked in the house. What I had no idea about was that there was a lot more than dirt and rocks coming into the house. In addition to the dirty stuff coming in was also allergens that could be harmful to my family, especially with my son and husband with terrible allergies. Dr. Doormat is the first antimicrobial doormat that is treated and designed for residents like me and is the best doormat for trapping dirt as well.

While each doormat is being made, a special antimicrobial treatment is added and binds to the fibers of the doormat. When you wipe your shoes on the Dr. Doormat, it penetrates the microbes and they are no longer able to be harmful. The materials used in the doormat are of the finest quality and are safe for the environment. The bottom of the mat is made from non-slip rubber that is from sapped from trees instead of using cut down rubber trees. The surface is stain resistant, is made from recycled materials and the resin and pigments are non-toxic. I love our Dr. Doormat because it keeps all that gross dirt from my nice kitchen floor and keeps those pesky allergens out of my house as well! You can purchase your Dr. Doormat from their website in a smaller size for apartments for $26.99 and the house size, which is what I was sent, for $46.99.

One USA reader will win their choice of the small ($26.99) or larger ($46.99) doormat.


  1. The peacock blue would be perfect for our kitchen. The current mat near the kitchen sink needs to go bye-bye and this would be a wonderful replacement. It would look perfect with our blonde Pergo flooring.

  2. I would love a house-sized charcoal gray Dr. Doormat to stop the flow of dirt that my doggies and son track in daily!

  3. I would love the Charcoal Gray color in the biggest size I can get! Lots of tracking going on at my house too!

  4. I love the Peacock Blue Doormat. That’s really gross what is left on a regular mat. Thank you 🙂

  5. Not much of a selection but well made rugs that seem to do a great job I choice the Charcoal Gray

  6. I like the chocolate brown house size. I live on a farm. The ground is kind of sandy and I think this sounds like a near perfect door mat. I just thought a doormat was a doormat until I read this.

  7. I like the autumn red. No one can miss that beautiful color and be reminded to wipe off their feet!

  8. I’d like the autumn red! This would be great to keep the bark dust and dirt from our yard from entering my house!

  9. I like the Autumn red one, I have a lot of red features in my house and it seems like those would go with that mat!

  10. I like the Chocolate Brown Mat from Dr. Doormat. I’m impressed with this product. I usually like to remove my shoes when I come home but most of my other family members don’t see the need. This mat is Awesome! Now I just need to win it…lol thank you

  11. Chocolate Brown would be the best for our color scheme. Although the red might add a nice pop of color.

  12. I like the Dark Brown mat since it matches best, but honestly I love all the other colors probably better 🙂
