christmas tour, cleaning, and a giveaway.




We host Christmas eve, with that being said our house is the cleanest it is all year on December 24th. It is also the messiest it is all year on Christmas morning...funny how that works out.

On Christmas eve morning we throw some food in the direction of our small children and ban them to the basement for a Christmas movie marathon, so the cleaning can begin. Boy, oh boy, do we clean...we clean the cabinets, the fridge, the vents, the trim. We sweep, we mop, we vacuum, and we   clean the carpet.

I personally like Bissell for cleaning carpet. I have in the past tried to use an "all natural" approach to cleaning the carpet...for...oh you know...maybe you have a 10 year old lab that decided to puke on the floor...on your side on the bed...on the carpet...even though 75% of your house is wood floor...and he just had to puke on the carpet...and you yelled at him because you stepped in it...and your children told you to be nice because your dog is old...just saying...for a random example. 

I originally cleaned the carpet with baking soda and vinegar...let me just tell you...it.did.not.work. So a few hours later I cleaned it again thinking maybe I just didn't do a good enough job...wrong again. A steamer, Bissell Pet Stain and Odor Cleaner, and seriously about 2 minutes later...the carpet was fresh and clean again. Bissell also has a Scotchgard Protector which would be great in my house with four kids...or a 10 year old Labrador.

I have a flat faced dog who randomly barfs and refuses to go outside to use the potty without a coat on so i will have to occasional accident on our carpet. I also have a 5 year old who is the reason steam cleaners were invented so i would for sure love this. PLUS word on the street is we may be getting a pug puppy soon . PUPPY=CARPET DESTROYER.
And i have always used Hoover, so im excited to try Bisselll. I always shampoo my own carpets except once every year or every other i will get professional cleanings. Baking soda and vinegar does not work and smells awful haha. been there done that.

Your house looks very festive for the holidays, and the red curtains fit right in with the season. My family used to sprinkle carpet cleaner and vacuum it up before switching to hardwood floors, but we’ve never tried baking soda and vinegar on the carpet. I’ll keep in mind that it didn’t work if we ever decide to go back to carpeting.
