Randomness & Carpet Cleaner
Are you ready for Easter? We are on spring break here, and today felt like
the first day of spring! We will be going to Washington D.C. for part of the break,
and I'm hoping we'll get to see the cherry blossoms. I've always wanted to be
there when they peak.
So, this is totally random, but I cleaned my carpets yesterday and I'm so happy!
This time, I followed a suggestion from a friend and used lemon ammonia. I try to
stay away from ammonia because it smells so strong and toxic. Our white carpets are
so old, but they are in pretty good shape for their age. However, there are spots that don't seem to get clean no matter what I use. I have even used bleach!
I think my friend said she uses about 1/2 c. per gallon of water. I was surprised to
see that on the bottle it said to use 2 cups ammonia to 1 gallon warm water. I think I ended up using about 3/4 c. and my old carpets have never looked better! They almost look new~I can't believe it! I made sure the doors were open and the kids weren't home...just for my own peace of mind. :) Happy Spring!
