cleaning tip of the day: when your dog decides to chew up a pink highlighter all over your carpet

{these photos do not do them justice!}

Glamorous, I know.

We did get it out eventually. But only after trying every possible cleaner in existence.

Then, we tried acetone, a very, very strong chemical. You know that strong smell in nail polish remover? That’s acetone, although in the remover it’s mixed with other things so it’s not as toxic. Straight acetone, though, is what we used here. It’s okay to get a little on your skin, but be sure to wash pretty good.

what i used:

~ a little acetone

~ an old rag

~ a lotta elbow grease 😉

Before, it looked like this (this was only *one* spot on our carpet, by the way) …

And then we just scrubbed away to make it look like this …

Ta Da! And then it all just comes off onto the old rag. See? It’s that easy … sort of 😉

So if you are a mama or a mama-to-be, you’ll know how to get this kind of stuff out of your lovely carpet 🙂

But then what do you do when your dog looks at you like this?

You realize you have the cutest puppy in the world 🙂
