No big intro today…still suffering the effects of the Johnson Family Plague of 2008… My big secret for you is a little product called Nature’s Miracle. I have to date only been able to find it at pet stores. This, my friends, is the miracle of all miracles for a mama with four kids and a large, messy dog (although we don’t have a dog anymore I still consider it a miracle). This product with remove odors, and stains, of any natural element I have come across. I have used it to remove coffee stains in carpet, blood, red wine, chocolate, mustard, catsup, vomit, poop, urine, mud, etc, etc, etc. About 2 months ago, my daughter vomited in the car, and it was EVERYWHERE! The smell was awful, and I feared we would never get it all out, but my dear husband set to the task of scrubbing it down with Nature’s miracle and lo and behold, after about 3 days, the smell had vanished. I have not yet come across a stain I cannot get out with this stuff. Sometimes it takes a while, (as in the coffee stain in the carpet–it took about a month for the stain to fade completely), but eventually it works. If you’ve got a stubborn stain or odor, give it a try. Head over to Shannon’s at www.rocksinmydryer.typepad.com for more useful tips and tidbits!
