On Shabbat, keep the floor clean


An oft-overlooked way to create honor for Shabbat:

"In order not to dirty the house, one should not allow anything to fall off the table at the Friday night meal, unless one will sweep the floor afterward in a permitted fashion. The same is true for the Shabbat morning meal, unless will sweep the floor afterward."

(Mishneh Berurah 262:3)

[Of course, this is easier said than done when one has small children...]

Have a great day,
