If you are a parent whether to little humans or pets, you can relate to my dilemma–carpet stains. I have the worlds lightest carpet in my living areas which are naturally the most high traffic areas. We have children who come in with their cleats covered in orange dirt, a dog with muddy paws, and let’s not forget about spills! We have a 6 year old–enough said! I cannot tell you how badly I want to rip it out and put it a different type of flooring. My husband and I have gone back and forth about this–he loves the feel of carpet under his feet, while I agree, it does feel pretty great, all I can worry about is stains, stains, stains!
We got our hands on a Mohawk SmartStrand sample carpet square and decided to give it a test run before making any decisions.
I decided to put it to the ultimate test…the fruit smoothie spill test. Blueberries, raspberries, and other ingredients that are really tough to get off of your hands let alone any type of fabric or carpet. If the Mohawk SmartStrand carpet can the berry test, I am sold!
I poured some of my son’s breakfast smoothie onto the sample carpet square and let it sit for a while. In real life kid-spills are never found right away, usually only after they realize they have no choice but to fess up.
I took a hand towel and warm water and rubbed the carpet square. The plan was to grab the dish soap once I had wiped up the spill with the wet towel. Oddly enough, the stain started to disappear with just the water. So I went with it! I kept rubbing the carpet and before I knew it, I kid you not, the stain was gone. WHOA.
I was worried that after the cleaning the built-in stain resistance would make the carpet stiff or rough, but SmartStrand fibers are naturally very soft, so because SmartStrand never needs additional stain protection from chemicals the comfort and softness lasts.
