A very big thank you for the kind comments and messages I've received on the blog. Until very recently, only my family knew about this blog. Word certainly spreads in the RVing world! Our friends, Jim and Dee mentioned it in their blog post yesterday and several people clicked on the link. I don't post daily and never will, but when I do, I will do my best to make it something interesting :) The pressure is on!
Now, does anyone have the secret to getting red wine out of the carpet? I'm open to any and all ideas.
We were relaxing with a glass of wine last evening when I upended my glass and sent it flying across the floor. I'm still not sure how I did it, but it did involve getting out of my chair and things getting tangled. Rick says I just have too much stuff around me. I contend that they are all absolutely necessary items :) And just for clarification purposes, it was only my second glass, that I, unfortunately, had just poured. Naturally. If it had been empty, it would never have happened. Anyhow, we blotted it up, used a citrus based cleaner on it (that works wonderfully on other carpet spots) and then poured salt over it to absorb overnight. I read that somewhere but had never tried it. Never needed to try it :) So, this morning, there is still a light stain remaining. It's much better than it was but still quite noticeable. I might try Oxi-Clean on it next. The plan was to replace this carpeting sometime in the future...just not the immediate future!
Oh well. It could have been worse. It could have been the whole bottle! At least I got one glass :)
*Edit* Thank you all for your suggestions. In the end, I tried my mother's suggestion (you have to try your mother's suggestion first, right?) and it took it right out :) For future reference, in case anyone needs this, take a little Dawn dishwashing detergent and add some peroxide. Check for color fastness in an inconspicuous spot first and then just dab, brush or wipe it on. It came right out with little or no effort! Can also be used on clothing stains if colorfast. Thanks Mom!
