slipcover
thank goodness for slipcovers…
slipcovered furniture that is.

my good idea of a glass of wine last night…
(to try to get rid of a three day headache)…
turned into a really good glass of FLYING wine.
red wine of course.
flying.
across the room.
making landing strips of the wool rug & sofa.

four machine washes later…
i think the slipcovers/sofa is good.

the rug…

salt
not so much.
i did what i have SEEN work before.
the salt thing.
you know… pour it on… it soaks it all up… let it dry… vacuum it away… wah lah.
well…
no wah lah this time.
not sure why.
any advice?
had any luck removing wine from wool or rugs?
do tell!
i think i might try my sister’s “go to” remedy.
hydrogen peroxide… water… splash of dish soap.
at this point if i can’t get it out… i might as well try it all right?
