My Rugs are Clean, it's a miracle, no it was just Ecos.

The other day I shared with you guys how my dear little one, Dino D, smeared hair gel all over out bathroom rugs, as seen HERE.
As promised I said I would share how I got the stains out, if at all, lol. Luckily they did come out, like they were never there, I was seriously amazed. I used my detergent, which happens to be Ecos. Baking Soda, and Vinegar. Magic solution, can't say, BUT it worked for me. 

 About 30 bucks, for 400 loads of laundry, try to beat that. I'm serious it's awesome!!! While I have been getting mine at Sams Club, seeing the price above, hello, I know where I'm getting it from now on, plus of course free shipping. Cha Ching.

This detergent is super concentrated, and of course green, biodegradable, and all the good stuff, without any of the bad, just the way I like it. Anyway, that's what I've been using for at least the past year, and love it. Even my mom starting using it, for no other reason that, it was THE best price, compared to all the others, and she was all excited to tell me she was using a green product, it was cute. Going green, can typically cost a bit more, at least up front, BUT in this case, it is seriously cheap, even cheaper than what you are using now, for real, I should know, and I love that.

I put my rugs on the ground, poured some detergent on them, on the hair gel spots, sprinkled TONS of baking soda on that, and then threw them in the wash. Put like 1 more cup of baking soda, and 1 cup of vinegar, and no more detergent, since I already added more than the 1 ounce recommended for HE washers. 

This is how my rugs turned out, and this isn't the first time I've been successful at getting stains out. 

Check out how I took lipstick stains off a load of laundry that was mainly ruined last year. 

Here is the post.

My princess has fallen sick, she has bee running a fever all day, and throwing up. I might be stuck laying in bed with her all weekend, she doesn't want me going anywhere, and wants me by her side, as all kids do when they are sick. I will be taking this opportunity and try to work on my blog design, again. I want it to look different, so bare with me, as I work on it. If you see changes, and things look weird for a few days, thats why. 

Thanks everyone!!!

In my spare time I enjoy cooking, and baking. In fact my mother and I have been making cakes for over 30 years. I also love gardening, traveling, and all things crafty. I struggle daily to keep my like organized, along with my never ending battle to keep the house clean. I adore my three kids MOST of the time, and can usually be found doing the mom thing from morning till night. I try to catch a few mommy moments, but those are hard to find in this wonderful life of mine. I am blessed and happy, and am thrilled you stopped by today :)
