How To Get Rid Of Pet Stains On Carpet

Hello Lovelies, how has your weekend been? Mine, not so great. I've been dealing with a stomach bug for about a week now and spend the entire Saturday in bed! YIKES, that's the worse, isn't it? 

 So while we were on vacation our "Senior" Newfoundland Bruce had a diarrhea accident on the carpet in the bonus room. BIG DAWGS, BIG MESSES!!! Our House-Sitter could not get all the stains out, so by the time we got back we had 2 yellow stains the size of  fists right smack in the middle of the room. I shampooed the carpet with my Hoover several times like a mad women, but no luck. The stains had set, being that is was now a good 10 days after the fact. We tried about every carpet cleaner on the shelf including Spot Shot, Proxy Clean, Laundry stain remover.... No Luck!
But here is what did work....GOOD OLE VINEGAR AND BAKING SODA

 So today I want to share this awesome cleaning tip for "pet stains on carpet" that I found on the internet. Yes, yes, I know, I know....very boring stuff ...but pin it now and one day you will be happy you got this info ! LOL...

Guest Post from Sweet Parrish Place - Checkerboard Deck

Hi all!  I am so thrilled to be here today from Sweet Parrish Place!  Christine and I are both new to the blogging world, and we decided to help each other out during our summer vacations by doing a guest post for each other!  I am here today sharing my painted checkerboard deck with all of you!  It is one of my favorite and most popular projects.  I would love it if you would stop by my blog and take a look around!

I have an amazing project to show you today.  This is my new favorite!  I am still madly in love with my painted backsplash, but my checkerboard deck is dreamy!  I have shown you my back deck recently here and here.  I have been planning this project for several weeks, and I was finally able to actually do it.  Here it is, completed.  This is the top level of our deck.
