Removal of red wine stains from carpet?  Dried in

Step One

Blot the spill with paper towels or a clean cloth.

Combine 1 teaspoon carpet shampoo (or dish soap, like Dawn) and 1 cup hydrogen peroxide in a small bowl. Soak a clean sponge in the mixture, squeeze it halfway dry, then gently blot the stain. Continue until the stain lifts.

Step Three

Does anyone have a good house cleaning schedule?

Posted By: admin  //  Category: house cleaning

I am trying to find a good schedule for house cleaning. So I can stay on track and not spend my wheels cleaning the same parts of my house everyday. I have heard people mention a rotating schdule to keep a house totally clean. If you have one I would love to view it and see if it would work for me.

I clean windows and any glass one day, do all dusting of wood and knick-knacks – including ceiling fans another day, Clean the bathrooms another day, sweep floors every day with my Irobot, Mop once a month, change the sheets every two weeks. Clean all blankets 1-2 months.

I don’t consider myself a wonderful housekeeper and I don’t always stick with this schedule. I’ve heard good things about FlyLady from a friend. She uses it and she has to clean a house after 7 kids!

FlyLady is a Yahoo Group, or at least that’s where you could sign up for it.

How do I get Ladybug or Lady Beetle stains out of a light colored carpet?

Posted By: admin  //  Category: Carpet Stain Removal, oxyclean

We recently purchased a home that apparently had a grouping of Ladybugs die under where they kept their bed. Bottom line is there is a nasty stain on the carpet now and rather than rip it up we’d like to give stain removal a shot.

Does anyone out there have any insight in what will get the stain out?

Thanks in advance.

I usually use oxy clean to get rough stains out of my carpet.  You just sprinkle approximately 1 cup of oxy clean on the stained spot then let it soak for approximately 15 minutes then vacum over the stained spot.
