NQR

NQR = Not Quilt Related

When we moved into our new home a couple of years ago, we replaced the carpet in several rooms of the house.  After a few months I noticed a spot on the family room carpet.



Of course I was not happy about this spot on our new flooring.  

Recently I read on a blog (and I'm sorry that I can't remember where it was first posted) about spot cleaning using Club Soda!!  Hum........ now this sounded interesting.

So I figured I would give it a try.

 I soaked a cotton ball with the Club Soda and rubbed into the spot.
 I then rubbed it with a couple of paper towels to absorb the soda.
And wa-la!!  The spot is gone!!!!

Okay, you can't beat a 69c bottle of Club Soda :-)

Happy Quilting!

I wish I had known about this when I had three dogs, two cats, and three daughters! I could have bought stock in a club soda company and be rich today, just from my own purchases!

Thanks so much for posting this! Emily has a light carpet in her room and it's got spots all over the place! I'll get some club soda next time I'm in town! :0)

I use it all the time...works great...I also just read on Pinterest that it works on ant hills...I haven't tried it yet, but all the commercial stuff we buy they just move out and start another, this is supposed to soak down in the mound and because it has a lot of carbon dioxide it kills them...sure worth a try.

What a great tip, I'll remember that one. Glad you got the spot out of your pretty carpet.

I work in a grocery store. We sell a lot of club soda. Hm, I guess this town has a lot of clean carpets. LOL

Wow - I think I need a case of that, lol!

Hydrogen peroxide works well and baking soda is the best for lifting stuff out of carpets :) Glad you were able to get it out

Thanks. I have a dog with a runny nose. The drip spots collect dirt quickly. I'll have to get some club soda and try it.
