WFMW-When Carpet Disaster Strikes   13 comments


Oh yes! The unthinkable happened.  My dinner plate dropped and left that lovely splatter on my carpet in box one. 

Step one – I did not panic! Instead, I thought to myself, this is going to make a great blog post!  I then grabbed my camera and started documenting my cleaning experiment. 

Box two is step two in my cleaning experiment – scooping up the food off the carpet.

Box three are the cleaning supplies I used.  I started with a watered down solution of Mrs. Meyers Clean Day All Purpose Cleaner and a rag and scrubbed the carpet as best I could.  Then, I took the hydrogen peroxide poured full strength on the wet rag and dabbed the remaining stains from my carpet.  Next I took a clean towel and stepped on it over the wet area to absorb the liquid.

Box four is the result!  Gone are the stains and boy does that work for me!
