    Any suggestions for getting dog bile out of wool carpet? My D’s sweet dog is not doing well and vomited bright yellow bile in a few large spots on very light wool carpet. She has tried vinegar and water. Unfortunately she thinks she made a huge mistake in the middle of the night and scrubbed the carpet a bit aggressively and damaged the fibers. Aside from being upset about her dog the carpet is almost brand new.

    No suggestions on the carpet, sorry.

    I do have a question, though.

    How do I delete a draft that I don't want to send? I used to know how to do that and now can't figure it out.

    Click on "My Drafts" on the right side of the screen and click on the "X" of the draft you want to delete. One of the (few :) ) things made easier with the update.

    thanks @skieurope I was looking all over my profile and back pages, like where it says when we joined and the last time we logged in is. I didn't expect it to be here, so I didn't look!

    Regarding the stain in the carpet:

    Try using Shout, the stuff you use for stains on your clothes in the laundry. Whenever my dogs have -- uh -- "accidents," I spray it on, let it soak in, and rub it vigorously in several different directions with a clean rag. IME, it gets the stain up and no one's the wiser.

    My dog vomited on our bed and it went through the sheet and onto the mattress. I sprayed it with Oxyclean and the yellow stain was gone very quickly, and the smell too!

    Oxyclean is like amazing for anything like that. I use their carpet cleaners and my wife uses it in the laundry. I had spotting on tiles in the shower flooring and tried like everything to get it clean. Then I used Oxyclean and just wiped it away. It's good stuff

    Oxiclean is great for this. I use a mini-wet vac that you suction the carpet rather than having to scrub. It's only a one gallon so inexpensive and easy to store and use. It's important to suction or dab up rather than scrubbing.

    I meant to include that if she uses a fine spray bottle and the wet vac she may be able to restore her carpet that she damaged by scrubbing.

    Depending on the damage she can take some little scissors such as manicure ones and gently cut individual fibers in and surrounding the area to blend it together.
    It has worked before for me.

    Why do people pay to have their yards sprayed for mosquitoes? Can't they just get rid of standing water? Are mosquitoes going to avoid their airspace?

    We get rid of standing water to prevent mosquito areas. We are very much a West Nile climate area. A company offers spraying the yard here, too. Why? Have not figured that out either. Also the county sprays sometimes. We wear deet if out at dusk.

    With our climate, we have a hot water spout next to the faucet in the kitchen. It is for making hot drinks like tea or hot chocolate. But, we also use it to fill a small pot to hurry things up to cook. I love that thing. Also love the first freeze around October 1st when the mosquito season is over until about late April.

    I couldn't get on board with the pot fillers either. Seems dangerous to mix water and fire, lol. A friend has one that started dripping and it just seemed too complicated for me.

    I think it's all about getting the "professional" kitchen look. Makes sense in a restaurant filling up a commercial sized pot but sure seems excessive for a home kitchen.

    I also think a lot of sinks are not deep enough to fill up a tall pot, and the pot filler solves that problem.

    Well, I have pot fillers and get my yard treated for mosquitoes. I'm feeling a little misunderstood!

    Regarding mosquitoes, they were driving me crazy and preventing me from doing anything outside so I called my pest control company. I live in Florida so it's a big problem even when there isn't standing water. We've had pretty good results by using a two-pronged attack of monthly spraying along with a newer system called In2Care that interrupts the life cycle. We're never going to get rid of all of them - just hoping to reduce the number enough to be able to use the patio.

    I don't use my pot filler on a daily basis but I do love having it for certain things. Yes, I sometimes have to empty a pot at the sink, but it's usually less full at that time than it was when the cooking started. I mostly use it for steaming vegetables or filling the teapot and I like that I can add water in an instant if the level gets too low. I would never say it's a necessity, but I do like how it looks (jewelry for the stove!) and I like the function. I fully admit it's a luxury and something that appeals to some and not to others. But I liked my first one enough to get one again when I built this house.

    Well, my decadence in the kitchen is a 25,000 BTU Wok built in. I was a vegetarian cook when we built. Now I wonder if new buyers will think it is good or bad when we put the house on the market.

    I LOVE having the mosquito spray for the yard. I am serious mosquito bait and would get eaten alive EVERY DAY just going out onto the deck to water my tomato plants. Now not only can I water them in peace, but I can actually sit out not he deck and enjoy the sunshine. What a blessing!
