the dog barf stain that just won’t die


I know.  It doesn’t look like much but I’ve been after it for several years now.  I’m not sure what exactly was in the dog barf I discovered in the corner, discreetly tucked by the wall as if to say “I tried to get out on the lawn”, but it’s become my nemesis.

After several  pre-treatment stain removal concoctions and steam-cleanings I said, hey I think I finally beat the dog-barf stain! And then as I’m vacuuming away a couple of weeks later I think I see the faint outlines of the stain and sure enough it slowly reappears.

I’ve done Pinterest, and Google search and used the sure-fire this-will-work tricks and yet the stain won’t leave.  It’s reminiscent of the 24-hour lip-stain lipstick stuff I used that no matter how I tried to fix the mistake (the purpleness was kind of shocking!) or cover it up with more muted tones,  my lips were an unrealistic purple for two days. Two long days. I checked the second morning and yup, still purple lips. Much like the dog-barf stain. Still there.

In the scheme of things, purple lips and dog barf stains are not worth the stress I let them  give me.  In hindsight I should have simply worn a bright purple scarf to accent my purpleness and as for the dog barf stain? Well, they make throw rugs, don’t they? Chill out Sue…..
