"Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing." Phyllis Diller  


"Oops! I spilled!" Do you know how to clean up a spill from your beautiful carpet? Whether it's a child's spilled milk or an adult's goblet of wine, the first and most important step for preventing a spill from turning into a stain is by blotting up as much moisture as you possibly can.

If there are solids, scrape them up and blot with lots of clean towels. Paper towels work well. Here is one key pointer. Do not rub! If you're thinking of using spot remover, wait until you have thoroughly blotted the area. You probably know that club soda is an instant spot remover. Pour a little on the spot, wait a few seconds, and blot the area.

While you are waiting for the spot to dry, if you'd like the latest real estate news, or to check recent home sales in your area, please visit my web site at lisabear.remax.com. You'll see that we've taken the time to prevent problems in buying or selling real estate by providing the most current information the real estate marketplace.

I promise that when you invite me over to talk about buying or selling real estate that I'll deliver RE/MAX Premier Customer Service. And I'll be neat. No spills!

Lisa, thank you for the great info! I only have one rug, and to be honest, the dog ruined it last week when he was so sick. There was no saving it from staining, seriously.

This is actually very helpful. Beats replacing the carpet and the cost that comes with it.

I learned how to blot from my mother. We were always spilling things on the carpet. She eventually took the Phyllis Diller approach.
