I just bought an H2O steamer to clean my floors and carpets. After assembling it, I cleaned the extra bedroom carpet with it. It seems to work well. They aren't perfect but sure look a lot cleaner and dry almost immediately since it's steam..supposedly at 1500 degrees.
After I finished with that room, I did our bedroom. Then I took the carpet cleaning pad off and cleaned the kitchen floor where "that dog" often sleeps when it's hot. Everything came out real well. The real test though was the office. It's carpet was awful. Well, it's definitely not perfect but a whole lot better. I would love to have new carpet in there since that carpet was originally in the living room when we moved into this house. But I don't want to have to take apart the daybed and trundle and worse then that...the computer and computer desk. That would be a tremendous job. So, if it doesn't come out as well as I want, I will have it professionally cleaned.
How I wish I could find a dry carpet cleaning machine. I used to (20 years ago) to have a man that had such a machine and my carpets always looked brand new and only took an hour to be able to walk on them. Unfortunately, he moved to California.
Today Scott, Ashley and Taresa will come. They want to stay with Leslie and John in their new home this time. That's fine. They are all about the same age and will have a good time visiting. They will also have their own bathrooms.
There is to be a party tomorrow to shoot off fireworks and have snacks. It begins at Cyndi and Jeff's swimming pool. There will be snacks and then after 4:00 the party will move to John and Leslie's home. There will be five couples of them and Bob and me. We will likely not stay long. Bob tires out too early. But we will try. I am to take cookies and there will be homemade ice cream.
Tonight Bob and I will take our kids and Ashley to Tavern on the Plaza for dinner. There will be seven of us. It will break the budget but should be fun.
