So hubby and I recently washed the carpets of our car. This was preceded by an epic drive to every car wash we could remember to find one with a carpet shampooer machine. All of them had the vacuums, but we needed some heavy duty scrubbing here.
Anyway, we found one. Basically the only one in North Seattle. Possibly all of Seattle, who knows? It’s on Aurora for those Seattlites out there who want to know. It’s a Brown Bear car wash.
Back to the beginning, we washed the carpets. Well they didn’t have a blow dryer to thoroughly dry the carpets. So we vacuumed the foam off and it was all mostly dry after that but still damp.
The next morning…the car smelled a little musty and mildewy.
Note to self: Wash the carpets in the summer when you can roll the windows down to dry it all off.
Remedy: Buy an air freshener that smells like pumpkin pie! Not a bad trade.
What else I learned this week:
1. Every cookie freezes well. I’ve never met one that didn’t. And putting them in the freezer is not going to stop you from eating them.
2. Don’t look at food blogs right before grocery shopping, it’s dangerous to your budget. And it’s more than likely you won’t make all those wonderful things that you thought you would make. Hurray menu planning!
3. MASH is every bit as great as I remember it to be. Same goes for Little House on the Prairie.
4. Restaurant pad thai is the one thing that will always be better than homemade.
