As I looked out the window at the pouring down rain and the wind that was blowing it sideways, I thought “Uggg, I don’t want to go out in that weather!” It’s typical around here for rain..but the season changed almost overnight…from 80 degree weather to stormy, windy, rainy weather and a drop of about 25 degrees..boo hoo..
I was happy and excited to go on a date with my husband down to the Seattle Center and meet the awesome folks from Mohawk Flooring to see how they give families a license to spill! I know… we don’t get out often. LOL Let alone going all the way downtown Seattle. Our kids always laugh at us…we are just North of the city.
There was a fabulous festival going on down there called Festa Italiano. Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Umm YA! ITALIAN FOOD! So we happily braved the weather and headed out…besides, there’s always something fun to see at the Seattle Center.
So what was the attraction besides the festival? I’ll tell ya.. Wouldn’t you be excited to check out Mohawk Smartstrand Carpet if you found out that it cleans with just water! Yep..it cleans stains right out with JUST WATER! I just had to see it to believe it.
I squirted Soy Sauce and Powerade onto the carpet and it easily came out with just a squirt of water! I didn’t even scrub! I asked if the stain would come out just as easily if it had dried. The answer..YES Even better on some stains! Whoosh..that’s amazing!
The amazing Mohawk Team for License to Spill was there to answer all of our questions..and let me tell you..these gals were the sweetest! They were out in our freezing cold, windy and rainy Seattle weather with smiles! Mohawk and their License to Spill Van is traveling across the country telling everyone about the new Smartstrand Carpet by Mohawk Flooring!
Another AMAZING thing about this carpet? SmartStrand has permanent stain and soil resistance that will never wear off. Did you all hear that…never wears off! Are you kidding?! This is the kind of carpet I need in my house. I have hard wood floors downstairs and would LOVE a few area rugs made out of this stuff! Our whole upstairs is carpeted and with Teen girls and all of their nail polish, make up and other do dads..lets just say we’ve got a few stains up there. Grrrr.
There is just no way getting around stains on a carpet. With Grandkids and 3 teens still at home..it’s just bound to happen! I’m so excited to learn of this new type of carpet!
No ketchup, red Kool-Aid, lipstick, nail polish stained on the carpet! What a perfect world it would be! LOL Just kidding, but you can imagine how wonderful it would be to be able to get these stains out with just a little soap and water..right!?
We got a lot of questions answered from the Team from Nielsen Bros. also…my husband asks lots of questions. Nielsen Bros. is a local flooring company in the Pacific Northwest with 4 stores to serve you. Soo friendly and helpful! Thank you guys! Pssst..they are going to be having a big sale here pretty soon on this amazing carpeting…so give them a call…say Shari Lynne from Faith Filled Food for Moms sent you!
Well we were suppose see the BetterTV crew and meet up with them and I know they were at Festa Italiana….But.. Alas we had to leave before we got to watch Chef Matt Fortner, from the deeelish Italian restaurant Cuoco making his Porchetta with Polenta demo and watch him spill on the SmartStrand Carpet. That didn’t stop me from sneakin on over and getting a pic of Matt and his cooking partner at the Cuoco booth! YUM!
So the moral of the story…get out in the rain no matter what and you will meet some amazing people and eat some delicious food and learn something totally new!
