This past weekend, Shayne and I moved the kids into separate bedrooms and during the rearranging process, I discovered this very ugly stain on the carpet:
It’s a mystery in substance and in shape. The kids aren’t allowed to have food or drink in their rooms, so I’m really not sure what it could have been. The shape is quite interesting though, don’t you think? Not your standard roundish blob of a stain.
Anyway, I came into the kitchen and poured myself a delicious glass of baking soda. Yum. Okay, no. Not yum. I added a sprinkle of water to it–not enough to even make a paste, just enough to make a crumbly mixture. I took it and worked it into the stain with my fingers and let it sit overnight.
After using the brush attachment on the vacuum, I discovered this:
At least…I think that’s the right area. The stain was so completely gone that I was sure exactly where it had been. And that’s a good thing.
Never underestimate the power of baking soda. And rest easy knowing you green-cleaned your baby’s carpet.
