Christmas Cleaning Tip – Homemade stain remover


I started to prepare the house for upcoming Christmas company which will no doubt begin next week, starting with a good friend of mine who will be home for a while for the holidays.  Andrew and I enjoy entertaining and will have many friends and family members coming through our doors this season.

I decided to start vacuuming upstairs; and I don’t just mean the carpets.  The molding and cobwebbed ceiling corners were in need of cleaning (because I can’t even remember the last time I did that).  While in the craft room/man cave/game room, I noticed some stains on the carpet (most likely from the manly snacks and tea that Andrew brings in there from time to time, but I’m not blaming anyone specific here).  As we’ve been using less and less chemical cleaners, we’ve learned to make our own over the years.  So, I concocted this stain remover that can be used on your carpets or even upholstered furniture.  It’s awesome, cheap, and it even works!   ~Courtney
