Pet Stains

Thanks to everyone who privately emailed me suggestions about how to get out pet stains. The most unusual was to try shaving cream and hey, I was desperate enough to try pretty much everything. The shaving cream worked as well or better than any of the other products on one stain but didn't do much on another that I thought was the same kind of stain. I have no idea why.

I think at this point I'm going to be looking at steamcleaners to really get the stains out!

Meanwhile.....I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day. I got to spend part of it at the Pflugerville library's Romance Reader event. It was nice for me to meet them and to be able to tell them about the Austin RWA chapter and the great writers we have right in the area!

Try oxyclean. You mix it with hot water, pour it over the stain, then blot up the liquid with a clean dry towel. You may have to do it a couple of times, but I've gotten some old cat stains out that way. Good luck!

Ah. I had tried Oyclean but with cold water. Yes, using hot water made a difference. Still not perfectly clean, but a heck of a lot better than it was!
