Stress... Cleaning... & More STRESS!!!

Sunday, August 8, 2010

Well the stress is rolling in. I just found the move out instructions for our housing office and I already have a racing heart. The amount that they can charge you for stuff is insane!! I don't know how I am ever going to get all of the cleaning done, thankfully I have already started so it will be easier for me in two months (really a month and a half at this point... but whose counting right?) when we do finally vacate this housing, but my goodness! The boys had markers in their room for the first few months and of course there are some marker stains on the carpet now, and I have no clue how to get them out. If you have any suggestions please fill me in!!! The carpet is my main concern and really its just their bedroom. Everything else here is still immaculate, especially since we have only been here for 6 months when it is time to leave. I am just so worried that I will get everything clean to the best of my ability and then they will do the walk through and come up with tons of stuff that they have to clean. If that happens then I will be getting a lovely bill and hopefully we will have the money to cover it, and if we don't... I don't even want to think about that. Thank goodness school will have started and I can do the cleaning with the boys gone, although Cayleigh-Grace will still be running around so that will be fun. KS will have about 10 days after graduation and before he has to report to his second round of schooling so I am hoping and praying that between the two of us we can tackle everything and get this place looking shiny and new. If we can manage to do that all I have to do is keep the house clean for the couple of weeks KS is at school before we move... but then I start to worry about the movers messing up the carpet again if KS and I were able to get it cleaned already....ahhhh!!!!

Oh, and by the way, this is just one of the many reasons why markers are not allowed in the house.

I don't know if it will work on an old stain... but I've found that baby wipes will get just about anything out of any fabric.

When we were moving out we had a Hawaiian punch stain on the carpet and the only thing that worked was to put a cup of hot water mixed with 2-3 drops of dawn liquid soap on the stain, cover it with a white towel and place an iron set on the highest steam setting on the stain and iron it out.. it would draw the stain out on to the towel! It worked like a charm i was impressed! The stain was a year old and I had used EVERYTHING on the market on it before and NOTHING worked!

I remember getting ours and stressing. How long have you lived there. We got lucky we had lived in the house for over 5 years so we did not have to pay for carpet or painting
