Out, out damn spot

One of my favorite “go to” websites is Pinterest.  Every time I visit, I pick up an idea or tidbit of information that makes life more exciting – or at least easier. 

Today was no exception. 

spot removal

I was struggling with various chemicals trying to remove a large stain left my a member of my book club who spilled a cup of coffee on one of my white sofas.  I was ready to take it to the dump (the sofa, not my friend) when I found this recipe  on Pinterest:

“The Only Spot Remover You’ll Ever Need- One part Dawn dishwashing liquid mixed with two parts HYDROGEN PEROXIDE. Pour the mixture directly on the stain, and watch it disappear like MAGIC. (Particularly tough stain, can add baking soda & scrub.)”

That’s what I’ll be doing today as a last resort before dumping the sofa.  Always the rebel, I’ll substitute my liquid Palmolive.  I think this recipe is probably more useful on clothing and carpets, but what do I have to lose"?

What was I thinking anyway, buying matching white sofas for my living area, knowing full well I do a lot of messy living?  I had this picture in my mind of how beautiful it could be.  And it was – for at least a week and a half!
