Oh well. What my readers want, I will provide. Here’s a couple more of my favorite household “recipes” for you. Next week though….only something baked in the oven or fried up on the stove!
My beautiful 100+ year old house is hardwood floors throughout and as a result, I am quite lenient with my kids as far as food/drinks in other rooms of the house. Unfortunately, I tend to forget that all of those rooms have area rugs in them which get nasty, crusty stains on them A LOT.
Again, I was tired of spending a lot of money on carpet spot cleaner that only did a so-so job, so I did some research and discovered this recipe. Again, another HUGE “love it” from me. In fact, by the time I have let the solution sit for 5-10 minutes after spraying it, I have a hard time seeing where I need to scrub. I have to feel the rug for the wet spots.
To make, mix together 2 C warm water with 1 Tb of baking soda and 4 T vinegar. I pour it into my old “store bought” bottle so it is already labeled and you are good to go! I generously spray the spot, let it sit for about 5-10 minutes then use a rag to dab and scrub it out. If your stain is a grease stain, you will need to separately use a tiny amount of dishwashing soap to get up the grease.
