CLEAN / Shoe Dryer

When you walk through the heavy snow in the winter, your soles are usually caked with dirt and snow. Before entering your house and staining the carpet, you can hang your shoes on “CLEAN/Shoe Dryer.” It can hold maximum of 3 pairs of shoes at a time, and they will be held in a circular pattern with the soles facing the dryer in the center. From there, hot air will be blown out radially to dry off your shoes. The melted snow will drip down through the funnels and fall into the base, where grass can be planted to make use of the snow-melt water, and to green your home. The parts are made of recyclable materials like wood, glass, and porcelain.
