Nothing Short of a Miracle... Works for Me Wednesday!

I don't know about you.. but no matter how much I try.. and no matter how many rules I make.. I still find pink stains on the carpet! As we all know, that pink is the WORST! I am told it's the type of red dye. I have tried everything and I mean everything on the spills my kids create! I even have a SpotBot machine.

Not too long ago, my little doll of a 2 year old decided to experiment with my RED nail polish...by using the carpet as her blank canvas. To tell you the truth, when I discovered the over 2 foot long nail polish mess... I nearly fainted.

Thankfully, I had the presence of mind to remember not to scrub the nail polish. To either keep it wet with a wet towel laying over top or just leave it
completely. After doing my normal googling for help.. I asked my Dad. Guess what he

Brake Part Cleaner..

Yah, that's right. Smelly, strong Brake Cleaner. I decided I had nothing to lose. I sprayed the carpet then blotted with a white towel. Sprayed then blotted. Sprayed then blotted. After 30 minutes of spraying and blotting, I nearly wept as the stain was disappearing before my eyes.

The smell is awful. You must ventilate the room. I had a monster fan going and the door open.. and yet I still had a cloth over my mouth. Please know that I am not claiming this will clean your carpet.. or do anything short of a miracle. I am saying for me it
worked. You can experiment at your own risk. I am not responsible if you do not vent the room efficiently or the stain doesn't come up!!!

But for me.. this is the only thing that has ever lifted nail polish straight from the carpet!

Hm!! I have two girls and a fingernail polish stain right between their beds. I'm going to try this today. The carpet is already ruined, so what could it hurt, right?

Thanks for the tip! I'll LYK how it turns out!

Gonna have to remember that...

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
