This past weekend I went to the Scappoose Sauerkraut Festival, which was one of many stops on the Mohawk Liscense to Spill Tour.
Other then eating Sauerkraut ice cream this weekend, seeing an adorable puppy parade and cabbage bowling, I got to meet a local celebrity...Stephanie Kralevich the KPTV meteorologist.
SmartStrand carpet has permanent stain and dirt resistance in the fibers, it does not wear off. When you normally get your carpets cleaned they apply a "treatment" to resist dirt, but with time it goes away. With SmartStrand it NEVER goes away, it's built into the carpet fiber, so no worries about your carpet looking dingy in a few years. SmartStrand is also very easy to clean, which for this momma of 3 little ladies makes it a must have! You can spill soy sauce, blue Kool-aid, red wine, and even nail polish and all you need is a dishrag, warm water, and maybe clear dish soap to get it clean, that's it! SmartStrand is made by Mohawk flooring which is the world's largest flooring manufacturer and it's ranked #1 in consumer satisfaction, so you don't have to take my word for it, this carpet rocks!
The girls and I decided to do our own carpet demo, I got some SmartStand carpet squares to take home and we went to town. I let them pour soy sauce directly onto the carpet, and it all washed away with warm water.
Clean carpet squares to begin with, and then they unleashed the soy sauce.
If this was my carpet, this would be the end result...but with SmartStrand...
All it takes is some warm water...
and all the soy sauce is gone! It all ended up in the pan, not in the carpet!
This carpet will be in my house, and hopefully it can be my Christmas present *hint* *hint* hubby... With the way my kids spill I need this ASAP!
