If the recent weather is anything to go by then autumn is certainly upon us, but between the rain, wind and cold it's still nice to see the changing colours and it won't be long until we light the bonfires and set off the fire works.
Autumn weather also means muddy boots and although we try and and remember (and encourage the kids) to take them off before entering the house, sometimes it just doesn't happen. Remember, we're here to help...

Tip of the Month
Removing dog urine and odour from your carpet.
Discussing urine stains is never pleasant, but as any dog owner will know, they're not only an eye sore, but pretty smelly as well. The following tip might seem like overkill when compared with other stain removal, but a dog's sense of smell is one hundred times more sensitive than ours and unless all the odour is removed, there is a good chance they will use the same spot again.
If the stain is fresh then cover it with several layers of wet kitchen towel and apply pressure either by standing on them or better still placing a heavy object on top and leaving it for five minutes. Repeat this until the majority of the urine has been soaked up and you're left with just a damp area.
Once this has been completed, or if the stain is already dry, create a solution of half white vinegar and half warm water and apply liberally to the area. Work it into the carpet with a soft brush ensuring it gets down to the base of the carpet fibres, which is important as it's the vinegar that neutralises the ammonia in the urine.
Blot dry with kitchen towel and sprinkle the area with baking soda and work this into the carpet using a soft brush with a solution of warm water diluted with a small amount of washing up liquid. Leave the area to dry completely and then vacuum up the dried baking soda.
1. If recent, absorb the urine with wet kitchen towel weighted down
2. Create a solution of 50% white vinegar and 50% warm water
3. Apply liberally to the area and work into the fibres with a soft brush
4. Blot dry, cover with baking soda and work into the fibres with water and washing up liquid
5. Leave the area to dry completely and then vacuum
This method uses some homemade solutions and involves mild acids and alkali, so we thoroughly recommend you test first on an inconspicuous area of carpet.
