Thanks these tips are great. I appreciate any tips on house hold stuff. I don't have as many as you but here is one. This works on stains in carpet , even nail polish. dampen the carpet and then spray it with a cheap shaving foam, work the shaving foam into the carpet with a little brush, until stain is gone. then rinse out all the foam. If you have trouble getting rid of the foam. use cold water with a little vinegar added to it. all the best to you, and thanks again
