Boring Day, But a Great Tip!

Not a whole lot going on here today.  Ben left again for the week.  He is training for work.  **Crazy weirdos....I have a house full of guns just waiting to be used!**  Anyway, I did get one of my metal Hobby Lobby finds hung up, but I think my 2 year old hid my camera...the search continues.  So until then I have a great tip/trick for you tonight!

Last year around Halloween, I was painting my toenails black on the living room carpet.  Kielyn decided that she wanted black toenails too, so as I was painting Kie's toe nails, Taylor who had just turned 1 decided to help.  She decided to pour half a bottle of black nail polish all over my beige carpets.
*Insert extremely inappropriate long string of curse words, thank God my kids didn't repeat any of it*


How in the heck do you get black nail polish out of beige carpet and what did we do before google?!?!

The answer is Windex!

Windex will remove nail polish from your carpet!  Spray the spill with windex, blot, spray, blot, spray, blot and repeat until the polish is gone!  It is a miracle! 

See, nothing exciting going on here tonight, but at least this might save you a headache somewhere down the road!  I am off to watch the Season Finale of Army Wives!
P.S.  Did you enter my giveaway yet?  If not click here!

Where were you about 20 years ago when I needed this advice before my mom got home from work?!?!

Hopefully I don't need to use it anytime in the future, but at least now I know!

Thanks :)

Really? You're telling me this now, when I JUST put bleach on my carpet to get rid of the PINK spots on my floor? Gah. I know, I just figured white would look better on beige than pink.

Oh well.

Live and learn.

Windex is a miracle cleaner, isn't it? I use it to clean all my car upholstery, and there's not a stain it hasn't gotten out yet!

Rewind back to yesterday, painting my daughters toe nails bright pink. My son came over and wanted to watch, knocked over the bottle and all over my carpet. Oh my....windex would have helped big time!
