Seriously? On a Monday?

So all weekend I have been asking John (who still thinks I am crazy) what to blog about on my Monday post. No luck from him. I had an idea this morning and decided when I got home that I would figure something out.

Well, I left work, went to the grocery (thanks Harris Teeter for the delicious cookie!) and came on home.
And...this is what I walked into:



Caution: Some viewers may find these next photos disturbing!




Oh Maggie, dear. (Upset tummy continued from last night when she woke us up. Twice.)

Hang in there with me.. I promise there is a point to this.
I calmly (to my surprise) put the groceries away. I needed a game plan. Quick, the smell was becoming overly obnoxious.

I love my dearest friends. They are always there for me when I need them most




So, this is the real reason for this post:

How to get that nasty stain out of your carpet
  1. Open all the windows, turn on the fans and get some air in there!
  2. blot up all you can with paper towels (wear gloves when you do this, nothing worse than poopy hands!)
  3. spray down the area(s) with Resolve fabric cleaner. Let this sit for a few minutes. Scrub. Scrub. Scrub. Eww, I know.
  4. Blot again.
  5. Go over area with Clorox bathroom cleaner (make sure it says "NO BLEACH"). This will kill all those nasty germ-ies. And help get rid of smells.
  6. Scrub again.
  7. Blot again.
  8. Repeat steps 2-7 until you have all the stain removed.
  9. Spray Fabreze liberally over area to kill any smell that may return.
  10. Done.
FYI: this tactic also works on throw-up (I know, a little graphic. But at least now you know).

Voila:
















There is nothing worse than a bad smell or stain. Hopefully, this tutorial has helped someone get a stain out of their home.
And after a quick tummy rub, our house is now back to a normal home. I dont see Maggie complaining.
