How can I convince everyone in my house to not wear shoes in the house?

They always forget to take their shoes off and I end up having to clean up the mud and dirt.

    Don't let them visit your house. Visit them at their house.

    You have to meet each one at the door

    and insist they remove their shoes before they enter.

    It may be a pain to do so, but it is necessary until it

    becomes the habit you want them to have.

    Provide a place for them to keep their shoes (like cubby shelf) at the entrance properly labeled.  It will also serve to cue them to remember.

    Make them clean up after themselves. No excuses, no exceptions. They aren't "forgetting", they just don't care because they know you will clean up after them. Give them a reason to care and the problem will resolve itself.
