Comments about Product: I love to work in my garden, but the soil gets very sticky and heavy when wet. Ordinary doormats and stomping around will not remove the clay from my garden shoes. I have been looking for something to help with this problem. This product has solved my problem and definitely does what it says it will do.
I like the way that I can just hose it down when it becomes caked with mud and the fact that I can move it around to wherever it is needed.
Good product, I will buy one as a gift for my dad who also loves to garden.
Comments about Product: I found this item easy to use, works well, and cleans easy. I am glad I did find this product being I am outside in the landscaping mud with my wellies. When my shoes are caked down in clay mud at times, this rugged shoe wiper works great. I should have ordered two, but I take this portable one with me when I go elsewhere.
Comments about Product: I bought one for my house and one for my son's house. We live in a red clay area and these have been great for cleaning wet gunky clay from our shoes which helps to keep the houses cleaner. He has his setting on his deck and it has enough weight to keep it in place. Because I have a small stoop, mine hangs from a hook from the wrought iron and I can easily put it in place to wipe my feet. When I ordered them, I thought they were a bit expensive, but now I think they are worth the money.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
