Superheroes, they’re not all they’re cracked up to be. Sure some of them can fly, some of them have super human strength, bla-bla-bla. It’s the same super powers over and over again. It’s like everything has progressed from the fifties except superheroes and their oh-so predictable powers. Modern day problems call for modern day super powers! So here it is; our advice on how to become a carpet cleaning hero!
First, the good news: You don’t have to fall into a vat of toxic waste to attain these powers. Neither do you have to be bitten by a radioactive spider or go through some dramatic change which is like puberty on steroids. The truth is that anyone can learn these powers. All you have to do is read carefully and super carpet cleaning powers can be yours. Keep this close to your chest, and don’t tell the plebs. Here we go…
Super Strength Stain Removal
Remember, young padawan, always test your new found powers on a small area to make sure you don’t damage or discolour your carpet.
Pour some alcohol on a white cloth and dab the stained are to try and lift the stain out of the fibres.
Use your superhero guns to mix ¼ cup of water with ¾ cup of standard vinegar. Pour the solution into a bottle with a spray nozzle and spray the stained area. Allow it to sit for a while (while you stand around and flex your carpet cleaning pecs), and then soak up the solution with a clean white cloth.
Grab yourself a bar of Ivory Soap and wrap it in a wet cloth. If that doesn’t work try using a gentle brittle brush. What, superheroes are allowed tools and gadgets, just look at Batman; exactly.
Of all the carpet super villains gum is up there with the most sinister of them all. Not to worry. Vaporize gum with your super hero, super peanutty peanut butter! Smother the gum in peanut butter and allow it to sit for a while. Then, in one swift move, grab a wet soapy cloth from your utility belt and remove the peanut butter. The gum won’t stand a chance.
Finally, you can obliterate evil stains with a thick cornstarch paste. Apply it to the stain, allow it to dry and then use your superhero vacuum to suck up the stain.
And never forget: Don’t scrub the stain, no matter how malicious and evil it may seem. Rather blot or wipe upwards as that is the best method to vanquish stains. Never apply too much liquid. It will saturate under the padding and you’ll end up doing more harm than good. And if you have a pet sidekick avoid using ammonia. Pet sidekicks are terrified of ammonia, not matter how courageous they appear, and one whiff may cause then to widdle on the spot.
Remember, with great power comes great responsibility. These powers are to be used for the greater good, so don’t be reckless. Stains are the bane of the carpets existence, but with your new found powers you can expel them from the land of clean carpets forever.
You are ready, no longer a padawan but a carpet cleaning hero. Go now and save the world!
