The Red Carpet Treatment!

The 87th Academy Awards ceremony (the Oscars) will be held this coming Sunday! While I’m not typically a fan of awards shows, I DO enjoy watching the stars arrive on the red carpet. I think you can tell a lot about a person from the way they dress, and I’m always trying to predict the best and worst-dressed! (That’s about as fashionable as I get, to be perfectly honest.) But it’s a fun game to play!

Regardless of wins or losses in the fashion world and beyond, one thing is for sure: that red carpet better be spotless! I mean, really, people. I sure wouldn’t want to be there if someone discovered a STAIN on the carpet right before the stars begin showing up…I can only imagine the frenzy that would ensue. Perhaps they even have an entire spare red carpet hidden somewhere? I have no idea, but it seems like a plan to me!

So when Hannah from Ghergich & Co contacted me to see if I’d like to share this lovely infographic, I happily agreed! I mean, telling me that carpets can be 4,000 times dirtier than the average toilet seat (can we all just stop for a big ol’ EEEEEWWWWW!!!!!) kinda got my attention. But, she also tells us how to CLEAN them. Which I love! So check it out…

Thanks to Hannah and her partner, eReplacementParts, for the fantastic graphic! Don’t you LOVE that stain removal guide?! SO handy!

  1. The first floor of my house is all hard wood, which makes it really easy to clean. Upstairs we have an off-white carpet, which needs a GOOD cleaning one of these days.

  2. Wow! I love this infographic – thank you – since I have dogs that make messes – I never do! lol – also love the Oscars for mostly the same reasons you stated – Most of the movies I haven’t seen yet!

  3. I had no idea that carpets could be so nasty! We got rid of most of ours and only have area rugs now. But I can definitely use the tips to keep those clean.

  4. What a great infographic, we decided when we moved to have mostly hard floors put in, sadly the one room I did carpet the carpet was a little lighter than I thought it was in store, I definitely have to keep on top of it with a dog. x

  5. I love watching the outfits at the Oscars too! I usually have no clue about the movies, I’m not much of a movie watcher, but the dresses are gorgeous. Wow – the carpet infographic was eye-opening. We used to have all hardwoods, then decided to put carpet in our bedrooms because it was more homey. My oldest daughter is in charge of vacuuming and well, isn’t very thourough yet so this has me a bit freaked out! I think we are due for a deep cleaning. 🙂
