KIRC Week One: The Ugliest Thing in Our House

I'm keepin' it real with my buddy Jamie this week. She started a fun weekly challenge and this week she asks us to share the ugliest thing in our house with the world. You've been warned.

This week was a toss up between my crap counter in the kitchen.... two of the things in the pile actually belong there. The rest? Not so much

and my carpet.

The carpet wins. I see it every day and every single time I look down I cringe. I hate it. 

Who's bright idea was it to fill this house with WHITE carpet? we vacuum, don't wear muddy shoes in the house and have even tried steam cleaning it and nothing! It's ridiculous. These random, and not so random stains just keep showing up. I don't know what some of them are or where they come from... 

others... I know exactly what the others are.:

Chocolate. Courtesy of a bunch of grubby chocolate chip cookie eating playgroup kiddos (but mostly my child)

Coffee. Courtesy of my husband. I came out one morning and my darling husband said to me 'don't believe a word P says'. After he had gone to work P says to me 'daddy fell asleep on the couch and spilled coffee all over the floor'  Ah! I was wondering why the couch smelled like that... and by the time I knew it was too late to really do anything about it.

And the little pieces of orange thrown in there? freaking silly putty... comes off walls and tile nicely... carpet? nope. Not. A. Chance.

This is the first (and last) house I have ever had carpet in and I can't wait to rip it up and replace it with wood!

I don't understand white carpet either! My mom put it in her living/dining room. And then had a caniption when our dog puked for the first time on it. And not he's not allowed in there. lol I said uh so what will you be doing when a baby pukes and poops on it? Cello! lol

My father has a carpet that's been there for 50 years and refuses to let us replace it - - just think of what's all on that one! LOL

Glad to know I'm not the only one with a "crap counter"!

You should try a Norwex Enviro cloth and some Carpet Buster!! The carpet buster has enzymes and managed to get dry erase marker out of my carpet!! I would love to send you a sample of the Enviro cloth if you don't have one, not sure how I could get you a sample of the carpet buster or maybe the mattress cleaner it is enzyme based as well and might help with the stains.
