There is something missing from this room. Can you spot it?
What about now?
Did you guess?
If you guessed there is no rug in here, you would be right!!!
And why is there no rug in here (you ask)?
Because, when I noticed my dog created a hole in the sea grass (from playing tug of war with my husband) I picked it up to move it around and was horrified to see adhesive from the back of the rug stuck to my floors! I should've taken a picture of it. It was awful.
So, out came the harsh chemicals after plain scraping and soapy water did not work.
It took me over 3 hours to remove the residue left behind from that rug! I had to spray WD-40 on the floor and then scrape the gunk off as much as possible (careful not to scratch my floors). Then after cleaning that up, there was a fine residue everywhere still left behind. Basic scraping would not remove it. So, Goof Off came to my rescue. It is a powerful solvent meant to remove sticky stuff. I was worried my floors would be ruined by it, but the residue left behind was already ruining it, so I didn't have much to lose.
Voila! everything came off! It didn't take the finish off my floors either.
So...........now, I don't even want a rug in there anymore. I actually like it better without one too. It was a blessing in disguise I guess.
So.....where is the rug that caused all of this trouble in the first place?
Did I mention today was trash pick-up day?
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great weekend.
