What Happens When You Cross Permananent Marker and a 3 Year Old?

What happens when your little guy takes a magic marker to....

Okay so, maybe you may or may not have children. If you do, you'll definitely want to read on. If not, you can read anyways and pass along this information to someone who may be able to use it.

The other day a little boy of one of the people I am selling a house for decided to write on an Oriental rug in a dining room. This was a very expensive rug and the homeowner was very upset thinking the rug was destroyed.

Oh by the way, did I mention the artwork was created with a large permanent marker.

I jumped into action. I went down to see the guys (Richard and Colby Thomason) at Milton Village Hardware in Milton, Ma (Lower Mills).

I was on the hunt for Gonzo brand spot remover. Much to my disappointment the store did not have it. However, Richard being a very resourceful hardware store owner suggested that I used Purell. Purell is the waterless hand cleaner you see nurses and doctors using in the hospital. I was a bit skeptical at first, however what could be worse that the permanent "artwork".

I am so delighted to tell you that the guys at Milton Hardware were dead on. The Purell worked perfectly.

If you live in the Milton area and you need to solve a problem and can't the help you need from the big chain hardware stores, you need to visit Milton Village Hardware. They are located @ 60 Adams Street in Milton.

They also have a web site @ http://www.miltonvillagehardware.com/

Thanks guys!!!

Hints from Michael "Heloise" Mahoney!  I'm keeping that one handy.  I've never had an oriental rug dilemma but some car interiors have taken a beating along with some home furnishings.  Thanks!
