Getting Ready For Thanksgiving...My Lil Greenie

Before you run away from hearing about cleaning (UGH)  You have to hear how much I love this little carpet cleaner!  Usually I pay a carpet cleaning service $200+ around Christmas and then again after the rainy season but this little guy has saved me close to $500. this year alone.

It all started when our "visiting dog" came to visit.  She's getting on in years and couldn't contain herself so I ended up with quite a mess in the living room.  My neighbor Anna came to my rescue (not for the first time, I might add) and she brought over her little carpet cleaner just like this one - she has 2 dogs so she knows.  Anyway, the little carpet cleaner did its job and I have been using it ever since. It cost me about $100. but has saved me about 6 times that much in professional cleaning.  It's especially great to use on the stairs.

So here you see my stairs (17 steps..phew)  BEFORE:


Ta Da!

Now I'm ready for company...and I have $200. to spend on other things.

  1. I think I might need one of these. We have three little grand daughters who visit regularly, and we have a new puppy. I don't know that I want to tackle the whole house, but for spots and the stairway, it would be great. Thanks for the hint.
