Slow Morning For a Busy Day
Hoover Max Extract 60, and I am IN LOVE. I know I will sound like a commercial, but I am just astounded at how well this thing works! My two living room rugs are braided wool rugs that I got very cheaply at Goodwill. I looked up how to clean them, but being properly careful of them yielded smelly (wet wool - ick), not very clean rugs. I rented a cleaner a while ago, and had previously just used the upholstery attachment, but that took forever, and still didn't seem great, so this time I grit my teeth and used the brushes. So much better! Long story longer, we had to replace our dryer a week ago, and needed to spend a bit more at Home Depot for the longer interest-free period. Hence my own steam cleaner. This thing works so much better than the rental did for these rugs! Even the side that was faded from leaving outdoors for too long is beautiful again. The spinning brushes lift the fuzzy bits off - the ones I dread spending time to trim, but are loose and make the rugs not very nice looking. Well, hubby is back, daughter is finishing up another bracelet - this seems to be the time of year we actually start completing some of the crafty fun stuff we think we will do in the winter, but don't do much more than make a mess getting all those projects started! I think partly because we are getting antsy, but going outside means getting wet, muddy, and cold - not so much fun. Still this year there's a lot to plan for we're planning a garden, so hopeful for chickens, have to rebuild our porch - we're already being blessed with this one, yesterday an old friend that does this kind of thing happened to stop by for a chat and offered his help. He is the kind who will follow through. Thank you, Lord! Time to get a move on! Lots to do, and the peacefulness of the morning is quickly leaving us - time to refocus a couple of littles!
