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!
