Angry Girlfriend

I'm not really angry and I'm no longer a girlfriend. Interested in French Bulldogs, manicures, seasonally themed candy, husbands and ruminations on reality TV? Then you came to the right place!


Last night, our new living room rug was delivered. It is so gorgeous and I am in love with it.

This morning, a member of our family decided to pee on it. I’m not naming any names here, but I will tell you that it wasn’t me. I wasn’t there when it happened and am sure that I am going to need to do some damage control asap.

I looked at care instructions, and it says ‘dry clean only’. Awesome. So help me out here guys—best way to get stains out of a brand new rug without dry cleaning? Is there a super product I can buy?
