When we bought our apartment six years ago, we ripped out the nasty, buckling parquet floors (yuck) and installed wall-to-wall carpet. It was quicker and easier than doing hardwood floors, and with a couple of rooms with odd corners, we realized that carpet would also be a lot less expensive than hunting down rugs for each room.
As much as I love warm, cozy carpet under my feet in the morning, I was quickly reminded that keeping carpet looking clean and bright can be a challenge. Especially when one of us (me) tends to walk around the apartment with a full cup of coffee early in the morning.
But now, I feel a bit more at ease if coffee, red wine, or dirt gets into the carpet. This fall, I am doing a series of TV segments for Carbona, which is sponsoring those segments and this post, showing their Oxy-Powered Carpet Cleaner. To test this out at home, we tried it out on some set-in dirt stains that had been in our living room for way-too-many-years. We brushed it into the stains, and they came out immediately!
Since red wine tends to be one of the most dreaded carpet spills, in each of these segments, I spill red wine onto carpet and show how quickly and easily Carbona cleans it up! (in case you’re wondering - that is why there is a glass of merlot in front of me on this table).
You can check out the full segment from the syndicated "Daytime" show here.
