The family and I headed up to Long Grove today to attend the Chocolate Fest which I have to tell you was soooo cool! This is one of those events we will have to attend every year! One of the companies we met with was Mohawk. I own a Mohawk rug in my living room which we absolutely love. What I didn’t know was the advancements they made in their carpeting!

SmartStrand has permanent stain and soil resistance that will never wear off.  For as long as you have their carpet, it will have stain protection because it is built into the carpet fiber itself!  Now, if you have two kids, you are going to have spills.  (Or if you are at a festival, your kids get to enjoy making a mess!!!)




Here’s the really cool thing – SmartStrand is easy to clean.  You don’t have to use any harsh chemicals or carpet cleaners to remove stains from SmartStrand carpet. All you need is a dishrag, warm water, and mild detergent like dish soap. Even tough stains, like ketchup, red Kool-Aid, even red wine will clean easily out of SmartStrand carpet. Seriously people, it was easy enough for my 5 year old to remove the stains!


My husband was so impressed that we’ll be checking out this when we replace the carpet in our house.  Who doesn’t want something this easy to clean in their home?  If you can’t wait, make sure you enter to win your own 6’ X 9’ SmartStrand Silk bound carpet rug.

A few of us blogger took the challenge on also:


Needless to say, we all were pretty impressed! If you have the “License to Spill” tour heading to your area make sure that you check them out. Audra Lowe (co-host of The Better Show) was here in Chicago with Sweet Whimsy Bakery. Check out what the kids got to try!

EZ Tofu Press Giveaway!

Calling all my tofu fans!  Firm and extra firm tofu is packed in water to keep it fresh. However, if you don’t remove the water, your tofu can be pretty plain.  By removing this water, the tofu can absorb the flavors of spices, marinade, or other foods. Tofu is often called a wonder food because […]
