Our carpet smells so nice now, looks so fresh and clean. I use bleach and the official jug-o-cleaner for the steamer. The bleach smell is not too strong, but it sure does get the spots out of the fibers that are too tough for regular solution. It took me 2 1/2 hours to do just the living room and hall. Moving furniture takes time too. I even tried the steamer on my kitchen floor. IT really works great, but leaves the floor wet, so since we store the appliance in the basement, I will not be hauling it upstairs every time I wish to clean the kitchen floor.
Today's project is moving our BBQ grill off the deck, all the way around our yard, through the drive-through gate, into the garage for the winter. We also will be covering our picnic table with our old pool cover.
I also laundered our bedsheets last evening and put them out to dry on the line this morning; it was 52 degrees and a breeze, so nature's breath dried my sheets while I cleaned carpets!
Yesterday morning the U.S. Postal Service kindly moved my mailbox to a new post next to the neighbor's post. They did, however, leave the post I had , STILL STICKING IN THE GROUND!! When I put it in a few years ago, I did sink a new hole, poured a foot of concrete in, so they would have needed a backhoe, or some hydraulics to get it out of the ground.
I guess you could call the new setting "Sparkish" since I now have to walk further and out into the street to get to my mailbox, instead of in my yard. Hopefully, I will not lose any more slippers frozen in THEIR driveway this winter!! We will see....
