I just love to find that great cleaning tip that actually works. Sometimes they don’t and other times they do. Sometimes what i think is a great tip…my mom things is ridiculous and it just doesn’t work for her. I like this one. Because Halloween is upon us…you may have lots of chocolate in your house…which may also mean that you may get chocolate stains. Here is a great tip to clean that chocolate stain…personally if the weather is cold outside I wait until it is hardened on the carpet or clothing and then scrap it off a bit. You can either then keep pouring hot water on it or blot it with hot water. You don’t want to make it bigger than it already is. Then make a mixture of one part hot water with a spoonful of neutral detergent and blot it until it is gone. You could also try a 1:8 ratio of ammonia and hot water mixture but I would not try this on darker areas…it may bleach it.
