Kool-Aid-OutAugust 10, 2008
That would be the name of my newest invention….if only I knew the magic formula. Kool-Aid and renter’s “white” carpet just don’t mix. After some research I found out the only way to reduce the stain is this:
1. Wet stain with warm soapy water.
2. Lay down absorptive cotton towel (or old flannel baby blanket.) I thought those tea towes work the best.
3. Put your iron on steam setting and iron over the top of the towel. It pulls the warm soapy water and stain into the towel.
Repeat steps 1-3 until stain is gone…in my case it was never completely gone, but it went from bright red Kool-Aid stain to barely noticeable stain.
We have been watching the Olympics and have been enjoying it. Sierra has enjoyed it the most. She is at the perfect age (7) and is just soaking up the whole cultural aspect of it. She loved the opening ceremony, watched the whole thing again this morning (we have it taped in the DVR.) She was impressed that the Chinese invented paper and the kite. Of course, really impressed with the girls that were in the ceremony, the singer, the piano player, and the one flying with the kite. Who wouldn’t want to be any of those girls?
She announced today that she wants to be in the Olympics. Tony told her she needed to be good at a sport. At which she declared it would be….Swimming. So, we will see. Wait until she sees Women’s diving and Women’s gymnastics (my favorites!) Oh…and synchronized swimming. What little girl hasn’t pretended she was a synchonized swimmer?
Keep your fingers crossed for me. I have an interview on Thursday. 🙂
