Yesterday, MNN’s resident foodie Robin Shreeves reminded us to watch Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s Toxic America, a two-part investigative series that concludes this evening on CNN at 8 p.m. EST.

I wasn’t able to catch Toxic America last night — I was at a launch party for a much less alarming television program, Planet Green’s "The Fabulous Beekman Boys" — and won’t be able to see it this evening since I have a prior engagement with the "Real Housewives of [skipwords]New York[/skipwords] City".

If you’re like me and aren’t able to sit down and spend the evening talkin' toxins with Dr. Gupta, here’s a quick but informative video clip in which he address simple ways you can keep potentially dangerous toxins and chemicals out of your home.

Gupta’s advice may seem like child’s play but a refresher course certainly never hurt anyone, particularly when the easiest (and an often neglected) way to keep a safe, healthy, and nontoxic home isn't purging your home of chemical cleaning products, going crazy with filtration systems, or scaring yourself silly by watching Todd Hayne's "Safe": it's simply removing your shoes while indoors.
