Just under 3 years ago we moved to a house that had lovely, spotless ivory-colored carpets throughout.
Within two months, the carpets in the family room and master bedroom had developed some major stains.
Now, don’t get me wrong - we’re slobs and have certainly been known to spill things. But we simply hadn’t had time to mess 'em up that badly. Evidently, we were seeing long-presumed-dead carpet stains, resurrecting themselves.
We’d had something similar happen with a stain at our previous house. A casserole containing soy sauce and other things had spilled. We had it cleaned by a professional, the stain was gone, but within a year or so it had reappeared.
What’s up with this? How does this happen?
(hey, it’s one thing if my slobbish past catches up with me, but it seems awfully unfair when someone else’s slobbish past catches up with me!)
