I found this in the Press and thought that this is a good reminder for those of us who have small children continually spilling things or I suppose even the adult who continually spills things.

For a wine spill, --or for me, it is would think I should know by now to buy something with no color in it!--soak it up with liberal amounts of salt. When the salt turns red, vacuum it up. Then pour club soda, and blot the area where it was spilled with a towel or a rag.

For white rings left on tables, put a small amount of mayo onto rings and cover with plastic wrap. Let it sit for 30 min. then lightly rub with nylon scouring pad. Make sure to work in the direction of the grain of wood.

For dented carpet, iron a damp cloth over affected areas for 30 seconds, then rub fingers through fiber of the carpet.

I thought these ideas always bear reminding. The Press in my area had some other great hints also, but I thought I would just put these in. This is what works for me, for more tips go to Rocks in my Dryer.

The ideas for this was found in the Press in my area and the writer was Jose Massady. He had a couple of other ideas but I didn't include all of them.


Thank you for sharing the tip about the dented carpet. We will be moving soon and I am sure we will be dealing with dented carpet a lot!
Great tips. All of them. I'm glad to have this in my Mommy-arsenal now.
