I had a whopper of an Oxi moment about an hour ago.
I'm still in shock at the power that lies beneath that lid.
And I swear, I don't secretly work for Oxi Clean.
Let me paint the picture for you:
Berry smoothie. Deep, pink and delicious.
In the living room.
On cream colored carpet.
Oh yes I did.
After the initial shock of my bright pink smoothie meeting the cream carpet, I actually thought to grab my camera for a "before" shot. I know, there's something's very disturbing about that. (No, I didn't actually do it).
But honestly, my darkest fear was that the "before" shot would end up looking exactly like the "after" shot, even if I scrubbed with all my might. And wouldn't my husband be surprised when he got home to see the couch had been moved. haha! ha.
One tip: If after the first scrubbing you think your light colored carpet is clean, take a photo *with the flash*. The light penetrates the carpet and shows off any remaining color deep in the carpet.
This photo was taken after my first scrubbing. At first glance, it looked like the stains were gone, but after taking the picture I could see stains still remained. So I did another cleaning.
And drum roll please...
I never imagined it could look this clean after witnessing the gushing monstrosity of deep berry colored stains, that was my lunchtime smoothie.
I believe in Oxi Clean.
