Club Soda to the Rescue!

Wednesday, June 01, 2011

Yesterday I had to drive Husband , to the eye specialist--
It was a 2 hour drive--
On the way, a bear ran across the highway-----made it safely across--Bears usually do run between the traffic---- only if there are little ones following, does it become a problem it seems! Bears are smart--

Anyway, on the way there, as I do the driving, we stopped for coffee. Took it with us--
And , as usual, the coffee dribbled all down the front of my top and my white jacket---A lady at the eye place, in the elevator, overheard me, telling husband , how sad I was that I was""wearing the coffee"" now---and--------and--------(t
his is the good part)---
She said, ""not to worry", as --she said--(now get this)----- soak the garment in club soda-----I just happen to have club soda , which was purchased by mistake, ages ago---I soaked the top---then poured it all down the front of my white jacket---- and left it , overnight, fully expecting I'd have to add some spot remover , ---(which never works)---

Well, guess what??---- The coffee stains are gone this morning-
Can you believe that?? Hold Schmoly!!! It's a miracle---So that's my announcement--CLUB SODA WORKS TO TAKE COFFEE STAINS OUT!

Lots of storms rolled around us as we drove home, and rolled around the house after we got home here-----It was such a hot day--cooler to-day--

And right now, a gal must do what a gal must do----and that is, walk Coal-----

    Thanks for the tip. It will be worth keeping on hand just for that purpose. Seems like coffee is always getting added to the clothes.

Enjoy your walk with Coal. It is a beautiful day here, hope you have the same.

    We kept club soda on hand when I worked in ER. It is amaing how well it work on stains.

Way to go.

Do have a nice walk with Coal.

How did DH's appointment go?


I am off to ICU for my volunteer job this morning and will stop by to see my old team in Pain Management before I head over to ICU. I just found out that since it has been a year since I retired, I can now volunteer in Pain Management and they want me so now the search is on to find a replacement for me in ICU. It will be nice to be back with the team.

    I heard about this years ago and used the club soda to get coffee stains out of my new carpet. Miracle worker!
