Oh Noooooo, I Spilled A Thing or Three

Brrrring brrrrring brrrrring1-800-RUG-DOCTOR?

I spilled a thing.


And another.


And yet another.

I need help.

One bad move (or in my case, three) doesn’t have to be the end of the carpet.

The 1-800 RUG DOCTOR Holiday Hotline is now open. From November 1st to February 1st (seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. CT), spillers can call for tips on how to combat holiday stains on carpet and upholstery.

Rumor has it that tip #1 is: If you have carpet in your home, don’t invite Liz to your holiday party.


I’m a founding member of the spiller and stainer club. In my cleaner moments, I’m also a member of the Rug Doctor Roundtable.

  1. Oh man. I could keep that hotline hopping between a 2 year old and an infant who loves to be on the floor.

  2. You are so right. spills just sometimes happen and we have two small grandsons now!!

  3. Maybe I should call to find out if that is the number one tip :)

  4. This is a number I may be calling. With six kids and a dog, it seems there’s always a stain or ten. I could use help in getting some of them out.

  5. some carpeted areas of my home can be some of the most difficult to keep clean.
    cleaning carpet spills can sometimes be a very frustrating chore.

  6. Sounds like me, lol!

  7. That kind of resembles our carpet at the moment o.O
    My mom has been wanting to get it cleaned for at least a year!

  8. Oh no!!! I’m so glad we don’t have carpet because our rug would be a mess!
