Hi,

The bushwalking/tramping people have increasing numbers of boot cleaning 
stations between rejoins to stop the spread of plants/fungi/pathogens.

They are not for beauty of the boots but for a practical purpose.

Many have big brushes (mounted facing up) to clean soil out of your 
shoes and a disinfectant applier for the base of your shoe, example

These are designed to educe soil and other contaminates being carried on shoes out of contaminated areas.

How should these be tagged?

I used 'cleansing' rather than 'cleaning' to try and get away from the beatification thing.

May be at the same time a tag for boot/shoe beatification should be created so they are distinguishable in OSM and mappers then have the choice rather than lumping them all in together.
