As a mom with four boys, to say that they’ve made some incredible messes would be an understatement. A big big understatement…and that had resulted in carpet stains, that for the life of me, I could not get up. I had purchased high-end cleaning solutions, and lucky me, those stains were STILL there. I was annoyed, and thought that those stains would just remain until we moved, or until we hired a professional carpet cleaner (which yes, I’m thrifty, and I prefer to DIY when it comes to cleaning things…) so, that obviously wasn’t happening.
Insert the online love of my life: youtube.
Thank you to Youtube. I found that a mixture of hot water and vinegar on a stain, lightly scrubbed, will remove it. If you have a hot iron and a towel to use on top of it to draw out the stain even more, then that’s even better. I did both. I’m happy to report my stains are GONE. Such a cheap solution to such a big problem for so many moms. I know, I could share my lovely mixture with some drops of essential oils, and probably make a fortune…but with such a cheap fix to such a huge problem, I had to share it with you all instead. If it works for you, I’d love to hear about it! 🙂 I might even have to try this for the next time a blanket gets a bad mess on it from my lovely babies that I photograph. I may be convinced that vinegar works on everything now.
Oh, and of course, if you’re looking for a photographer, I’d love to work with you. I’m even doing a special through Memorial Day Weekend, for the first five people to schedule & pay their deposits. For those who do, you’ll get a 16×20 canvas from your session as a complimentary gift from me. Pretty awesome right?! Especially if you love having your babies and families on your walls as beautiful art.
