Stained Carpets

Read below for a chance to enter to win a 5×7 carpet.

Once upon a time, I lived in an old old house. A 1912 home that had NO carpet.

My son was little and all I could think about was how nice it would be to have nice carpet so he could crawl comfortably…….or a softer landing when he was learning to walk. The future brought me to a new home. With brand spankin new lovely carpet. We have carpet everywhere except in our kitchen, dining, and entry. I love the cherry wood flooring, but I love my carpet even more. Until………until a thousand of my son’s friends would always take their shoes off on the carpet near the entry. Mud! That spot was easy to tackle. But when we added our Labradoodle to our family, the carpets suddenly saw better days.

Between potty training the pup and the muddy NW weather……our carpets were no match for a muddy long curly haired labradoodle in the winter months in Washington state. I bought a carpet shampooer which worked for about a year………I wiped paws with shamWows, I would carry her inside and straight into the tub, I cried, I found myself disgusted over how stained my carpets were.

I would LOVE my hardwoods back now. Or if I could have the carpet from CarpetOne with Resista, I’d be a happy happy girl. I had no idea this even existed. CarpetOne Resista carpet features outstanding stain and odor protection. I could use both of those! Although my dog is odor free……I do have a teenage son and all his friends rolling around on the carpets too.

I’m curious to know, in your home, how do you balance your practical needs with your style wants?

You live your life on carpet. Make sure you have carpet that lets you live your life! For more information on Resista Carpet visit
