Eat out when wanting red wine and pasta with a red sauce. My husband could be one of four people in the video.

Not only do I keep sparkling water on hand to drink, it also helps with clean up on clothes if used right away. Thank you for the amazing video! I need that rug for our house for sure!

Thanks for the video! The top way of dealing with any stain…..the quicker you deal with it the more likely you are to remove it 🙂

Here’s a tip: Don’t rub fabric harshly to remove stains as this can abrade fibers and cause fading. Trust me, I know from experience.

Baking soda removes lot of problems in the kitchen.

Using salt on liquid spills and placing a clean cloth on spilled wax and ironing up the mess.

You had me at ‘hose’. I’m a fan of anything that can be scrubbed at the car wash with a bit of OxyClean or GreenWorks. That probably sounds wacky, but it’s the easiest, neatest way to scrub the heck out of something without getting my (little) house messed up in the process. Especially something that needs some leg room, like a rug. So much nicer on the air (and my lungs) than the usual chemicals.

I’ve been a fan of your rugs (and kind of in love with your stripes) for ages. Fingers crossed…

OxyClean. Thanks!

Best stain fighting tip: wear an apron when cooking! Old-fashioned, yes, but effective!

Hydrogen peroxide!

this rug is great for families!

Debra Lee December 15, 2013 at 10:42 pm

OxyClean with some fast action!

Ice cubes and seltzer water. The seltzer water helps get the stain out and for some reason ice cubes always get out stains — no idea why but it’s my go-to.

I mix up my own all-natural, all-purpose stain spray: 1/4 cup liquid castille soap, 1/4 cup glycerin, 2 tablespoons borax, a few drops peppermint essential oil, 1 3/4 cups water. This is great to pretreat laundry or spills on slipcovers and tablecloths.

Love your rugs so much!
