Time does fly!

I was putting ornaments on the Christmas tree this morning while having a cup of coffee. Turned on my laptop and thinking of writing a post about The Steam Team and I remembered one of my posts I made for it. It was a year ago. It's Christmas time again but I am in Turkey now!

Guys, time REALLY does fly! Doesn't it?

'Early Morning Accident

I was enjoying having my coffee sitting on the couch and watching my son playing with his lightsaber yesterday...Until he accidentally hit my coffee cup and coffee was spilled on the rug. Lol. I hate stains!! I have a lightweight deep cleaner so why would I worry about, right? Wrong! Because I ran out of cleanser. Ugh!

Enjoy turned into pain:( I grabbed a pack of baby wipes and started to work on removing the stain. Baby wipes always work. Baking soda and vinegar/salt or dish liquid are commonly well known stain removers and when I searched yesterday, I found out that beer is the another solution for stains. Do you know that? It literally lifts it out by pouring a bit of beer right on top and rubbing the beer lightly into the material. Probably this process needs to be repeated a couple of times to remove all traces of the stain. Honestly, I never thought to use beer as a stain remover before. Will keep one of these rug cleaning tips in mind for next time:) '

  1. oh no!
    sorry you had that early morning accident...

    great tips on cleansing.

    now i'm off to check the links out.

    happy sunday!


  2. I'm laughing over here. I have 3 bottles of beer in my fridge from a party I had a while back. I don't drink beer and so every time I open my fridge I wonder what to use the beer on. I know.

  3. So glad to see that you posted.
    Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family.
    Enjoy your time with your family.

  4. I didn't know all those things worked on stains! That's fascinating!

  5. That is good information to remember. I knew about most of the common stain removers but not the baby wipes and beer.

    Our carpet is older but I only have it professionally done about once a year. In between I use a steam cleaner.

    Hope you got those ornaments hung without anymore incidents. I can't believe Christmas is also here, time does fly!

  6. Hi Yonca!

    I like the way you turn off the comments on the some of your sponsored posts. I have thought about doing that.

    I mainly wanted to stop by and wish you Happy Holidays in case I miss you. I'm planning on taking a break around Christmas and maybe another around New Years.


  7. hi yonka, just stopping by to wish you and yours a very merry Xmas!
