Tuesday Cleaning Tip--Gum and a little something FREE

Good Morning. Just nine days until Christmas morning and for me, just 4 more days until David gets to come home from basic training for Christmas. I am so excited! I can't wait to see my little boy. In the meantime, I'm sure we all have lots of cleaning to do before the 25th arrives. What? You found gum stuck in the carpet? Here's a quick tip to help:

1) Place a bowl of ice over the gum and let sit till the gum becomes hard, take a hammer and hit the gum. It should break apart and come off the carpet.
2) I've used peanut butter to remove gum from hair...and I've read it works on the carpet too. Of course, then you will have to get the peanut butter out of the carpet. Better than gum I guess. Do I need to tell ya'll that I use the creamy peanut butter? LOL
3) When I was out of peanut butter one time (I know, how could a mommy not have peanut butter in the house?) I decided maybe it was the oil in the p.b. that got the gum out of hair. So I tried veggie oil and it worked! So try rubbing some of that into the gum and see if it comes out.
4) If the none of those tips work, try dry cleaners solvent, pour a small amount onto a rag and rub over the gum, it should come right out of the carpet.

Of course, if you've used anything, other than plain old ice, on the carpet you will want to be sure to clean it well afterwards.

Ya'll are waiting to hear about the FREE thing aren't ya? When is she gonna stop yapping and tell us how to get something for FREE? LOL I said a "little something" remember...it's not a real big deal.

It is MP3 downloads from Amazon. I collected my Pepsi Points and used them all on songs. I also signed up to receive the newsletter and right now they are doing something called the 25 Days of Christmas. Giving away a free song every day until Christmas. Today's free song is "Angels We Have Heard On High" by the Brian Setzer Orchestra. They also have a section that they keep all the time on their Special MP3 Deals page called Featured Free Songs. When you go to the page scroll all the way down and you will see the Free Songs section.

Have a terrific day and stay warm!

I chased Libby around while she was cleaning up the living room just to tell her about your gum cleaning tip. I hope your Boy gets home safe and sound. It will be the BEST Christmas for you all.
Regards and Happy Holidays,
