Cleaning Wool Rugs

A girlfriend inquired last night how to clean a new wool rug. She had purchased a discounted floor model with a few smudges. I haven't had the opportunity to clean a wool rug, and I simply thought a hand steam cleaner would do the job. I was WRONG! After researching, I found out that the steam can create shrinkage. Follow these simple steps to clean your wool rugs: or

F.Y.I. I personally won't purchase a rug from Pottery Barn, because of the obnoxious smelling glue they use. I have found that client's who have purchased rugs from Pottery Barn end up giving them away, because of the burning odor their rugs emanate after a few years.

To start my month off clean, I washed all of my throw rugs. Plus, I washed my car and the towel I keep on the floor, in front of my child's car seat. (It's a fast way to keep the floor mats clean and looking new. A quick shake and regular wash keeps the winter road goop out of my mats.)

What can you do to start your month off right?

An Amazing Day at the Office!

I had a FABULOUS day toady! My mother-in-law is in town and blessed us with her presence. She is as persnickety ("but not as obsessive") as I am, so I was thrilled when she agreed to join me on a new job today. She was "invaluable." What amazing results we created, and what fun! My client said she "could put down her head and cry with joy and relief." I'm still excited about my day.
