We’re working with Spot Shot® Instant Stain Remover to bring you my favorite tips about cleaning.
“Mom!” I hear from the back door. “We’re coming in to have a snack!” When I hear the word “we” or “we’re”, I know what it means: my own four kids, plus 4-6 neighborhood kids.
“Ok” I call back to him.
I’ve been upstairs doing laundry, watching them play in the woods behind our house, so I knew that it was coming.
I stay upstairs, but I can hear them in the kitchen: someone just poured juice, someone is eating pretzels and the rest of the kids have grabbed a popsicle from the freezer.
About two minutes later I hear “Oh, Man! My popsicle is dripping on your carpet, dude.”
That’s my cue to come downstairs & take over.
“Everyone on the back porch. When you finish your snacks, bring them back inside to the kitchen. Use the dishwasher, sink & garbage can. Clean up & then head back out to play.”
In the meantime, I have cherry popsicle stains on my carpet.
I never panic about stains. When Mickey & I moved to our very first house, there were a few stains on the floor and I asked the inspector if he had an insight. He said “My daughter is a realtor and she relies on Spot Shot ®” He then proceeds to pull a bottle from his bag. (true story). He sprays it on the stains & they come out almost instantly.
So, when Spot Shot® e-mailed me to ask if I have ever used their product, I wrote back saying “When have we ever NOT used it.” We literally keep cans of it on hand because four kids, a dog & a cat have nothing on Spot Shot. (side note- we love the one in the aerosol can).
Here are some before (with the stain) & after (after using Spot Shot ®) of the mess from the kids snacks the other day :
Here is a spot where our 4 year old spilled her snack (fresh out of the oven, chocolate chip cookie with melty chocolate chips)… and how quickly Spot Shot® cleaned it.
You know that I love easy, simple ways to clean. Here you have it. I promise you that as long as I have carpets in our house, I will have this in my house. 🙂 (Well- and as long as I have kids & pets in our home! Haha!
