What’s the rule in your house, shoes or no shoes on the carpet? Growing up, I don’t remember my parents having any sort of shoe rule but now that I make the rules of the house, it’s no shoes on the carpet. Please and thank you. Ok, sometimes I don’t say please it’s more like ” get off the carpet with your shoes!” I see how filthy my tile can look from the grime of shoes just imagine the secrets of carpet. I know, gag! Since we have family coming to stay with us soon, I spent this past weekend deep cleaning my carpet with the BISSELL ProHeat 2X Revolution carpet cleaner. Now that my carpets are sparkling clean, I want to keep them that way so I created a whimsical printable to display right next to that carpet I worked so hard to clean that nicely says “Leave your worries and your shoes at the door” Please.
It’s true, life is full of worries. Visiting someone’s house should be welcoming without worries. Worries should be left at the door and shoes too in this case. Especially with the Holidays are coming up, I don’t want to worry more about the never-ending house cleaning I have to do. I’ll admit, I’m sorta a procrastinator. Like, let’s wait till a week before or heck, maybe 3 days before to get my deep cleaning on. Which turns me in to a manic cleaner. I seem to do my best cleaning at this rate of speed but again, it makes life stressful and one thing I don’t like is dirty carpet. To make you carpets cleaner during the holidays, BISSELL is giving away 2 Carpet Cleaners bundles to two lucky readers who comment below.
To display my No Shoes Printable, I painted a natural wood plaque with white paint then painted yellow chalky paint over the white. When the paint was dry, I use some sand paper to distress the top yellow coat leaving some of the white underneath.
This printable is 8 x 10 in size but since the plaque was smaller, I used a paper trimmer to trim it down to the size I wanted.
Using, Mod Podge I adhere the printable on to the plaque.
Now that my carpets are sparkling clean, I really want to keep them that way. The BISSELL ProHeat 2X Revolution surprisingly really did clean my carpets well, much better than the machines I usually rent at the grocery.
I wish I could say these stains are from pets but they are from my kids. My carpet has some tough areas where the tile meets the carpet so I used the detachable hose to scrub that area. The whole machine is so lightweight in design and very easy to maneuver around and under furniture. Those pesky spots are gone and I’m happy! Thank you BISSELL ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet and thank you BISSELL for donating $10 of every purchase of the BISSELL ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet to the BISSELL Pet Foundation to help America’s homeless pets.
When you spend a good, quality time cleaning your carpets the DIY way, it’s even more important to remind guests to keep their shoes off the carpet.
