Clorox Clean-Up, I love you!

I love this stuff. Not just in a, I-think-it's-great-it-cleans-my-bathroom way, but in a, I-could-never-live-my-life-without-you way. Danny and I discovered its magical properties one day when we were desperate to get an ugly stain out of the carpet. I had tried EVERYTHING, even the Clorox Bleach Pen, but nothing worked! So, Danny grabbed the Clorox Clean-Up and gave it a try. I was horrified. I thought there would be a large discolored spot on my carpet, but nope, the stain was gone and the carpet looked GREAT. Well, today, Tommy decided to help himself to some Jell-O while I was in the shower. And you can see what happened below. There was Jell-O splattered all accross abot half of the living room!
Tommy was sad because all of his beloved snack was all over the floor, and I was so mad that he had made such a huge mess! I scooped it all up, soaked the carpet with warm water and grabbed my Clorox Clean-Up. It had worked before, but I had never done it on such a large area of carpet, so I was nervous. I sprayed it on, and like magic, the red was GONE! I used my steamer to get the excess water and Clorox out of the carpet, and....
Ta da! The carpet is fabulously clean! Can you believe it? I LOVE this stuff!

Wow, I can see why you fancy Clorox, Clean-up. Like you I would have been too nervous to try it out on carpet. Our kitchen table has carpet under it and on occasion we get food on the floor. I will have to keep this in mind for the next carpet disaster.

Have you ever tried Resolve? When we were moving from our last apartment, Ethan got hold of a permanent marker and colored all over the floor at the entry to his room. I was desperate. We hadn't made a deposit, but didn't want to have to pay. James's sorta sister suggested the WalMart brand of Resolve, but we couldn't find it so used the real thing. It did the trick and we did not have to pay a dime to the apartment complex!

We'll have to try the Clorox to see if we like that better.

I've never used that before, but I'm putting it on my shopping list!
