Having little kids and a dog means having stains. It’s just a fact of life. On clothes, on carpets, on the driveway (colored bubble mishap – don’t ask)! 🙂
I usually use some enzyme stuff from the organic isle. It does a good enough job. But, I recently used the last of the bottle on a dog stain and haven’t yet replaced it.
So, imagine my dismay when I walked into the living room today to find this……
Yes, that’s a giant marker line. From a NON-WASHABLE MARKER!
I was cleaning up the kitchen after breakfast and the kids were being so good and playing so well together.
I decided to leave them alone for five more minutes and finish the kitchen. Big mistake number one.
In that short time they had found the NON-WASHABLE markers from Lucie’s art birthday party this past weekend. I hadn’t t put them back in the craft room yet. Big mistake number two.
One of them decided to choose a lovely dark forest green and draw a 20 foot line on the carpet stretching from the front door, all the way through the living room and ending at the dining room table. They even included a nice little dinosaur at the end of the line. Nice touch, kids!
I wonder which one of them is guilty? Hum. I think I found the culprit! Marker on the nose never lies. Aww, he seems so remorseful.
After I did some literal shouting (don’t judge), I calmed down and began to frantically rummage through the cabinets to figure out what I have that will get this stain out. And I came across this bottle of Shout® that I was saving it to try out on some laundry stains. But, this was a stain emergency! Shout® has enzymes to break up and remove tough stains. Well, this is a tough stain. We shall see.
I used the handy trigger and sprayed it right on the hideous green line …..and I scrubbed! Guess what?! It came right out. It was like a stain miracle! The marker is actually still on my hands and on the bean’s face…….but it’s not on the carpet anymore!! Shout® saved me so much time! I was skeptical, but it saved my carpet! I wouldn’t have even thought to try it on this if I hadn’t been out of my other stuff. It’s not just for laundry! But, imagine what it will do on my laundry stains if it took marker out of my carpet? Amazing. I’m sold! 🙂
You can get it at Walmart.
