How To Remove Chocolate Stains From Upholstery

87085546For Grandmothers too! 🙂

The removal of chocolate stains from upholstery can be challenging. It is not nice to have a cushion cover or some furniture smeared with chocolate. There are tips available in order to remove chocolate from upholstery.

The importance of clean upholstery in home cleaning

Removing chocolate from upholstery is a difficult part of upholstery cleaning. Usually, it can take some time before the chocolate is removed. However, it is vital in home cleaning to have as clean a home as possible. Whatever the reason the chocolate fell onto the upholstery in the first place, it does need to be removed immediately as chocolate is harder to remove once it dries.

Removing chocolate stains from upholstery

There are a number of different ways to remove chocolate stains from upholstery.
As a vital element in home cleaning, it is important to remove the chocolate in the right way.

Removing the chocolate stain using washing up liquid and water


In the first instance, take a spoon and try to dislodge the chocolate from the upholstery. Find a bowl and pour into the bowl two cups of water along with one tablespoon of washing up liquid. Using a spoon, mix the solution together. Using a cloth slightly wet it with the mixture. Slowly, begin to clear the chocolate stain with the cloth, starting outwards before moving towards the middle of the chocolate stain. Take a slightly wet cloth to rinse the part of the upholstery which contains the chocolate stain. To finish, take a cloth or a sponge to dry the upholstery.

Removing the chocolate stain using cornmeal

Another tip to removing a chocolate stain from upholstery is to use some cornmeal. It may seem odd, but it has proved effective. Shake some cornmeal over the upholstery section where the chocolate stain is showing. Leave the upholstery for a while and let the cornmeal sink into the upholstery. After that, sweep the cornmeal away from the upholstery using a cloth or some kitchen paper.

Removing the chocolate stain using ammonia and detergent

Another way of removing the chocolate stain is to use ammonia and detergent. Take a spoon and try to remove some of the chocolate. It is best to make a solution consisting of one teaspoon of detergent mixed in with water. A small cup of the mixture will do. It is best to use a detergent which doesn’t include either alkali or bleach. Using the solution, place it on the upholstery with a sponge or a cloth. The next step is to place one tablespoon of ammonia mixed with water in a small cup. After that, use a cloth with the mixture of ammonia and water on it and blot or wipe the upholstery with the cloth.

using carpet cleaner

For this particular tip, it is best to wait for the chocolate to go hard on the upholstery before trying to remove some of it with a spoon. Using the carpet cleaner, spray it on the part of the upholstery where the chocolate stain resides, before leaving the upholstery for ten to fifteen minutes. Taking a tiny brush, softly apply it to the chocolate stain for about five minutes. Using a damp sponge, wipe away the chocolate stain.

Removing the chocolate stain using an upholstery stain cleaner

In the event that the stain persists, an upholstery stain cleaner can be purchased. There is nothing wrong in admitting defeat and getting an upholstery stain cleaner to help remove the stain. The upholstery stain cleaner should be able to remove the stain.

Fruits and Veggies Year Round: What You Need for an Indoor Garden

fruits

Wouldn’t it be nice to harvest strawberries in the middle of winter to use in your Christmas recipes? Perhaps you’re an avid cook and like to use freshly picked and dried spices. Growing these items year round isn’t as difficult as many may assume. Realistically, it doesn’t take sunlight to grow fruits and vegetables – although it’s quite beneficial. As long as you provide the right environment, you can grow nearly anything indoors.

1. Space – First, you’re going to need the room to grow whatever it is you plan on growing. Most herbs, flowers and some edibles can fit in a single upright pot. Others will require room to branch out such as watermelons and strawberries. If you have a room you can dedicate to growing, this could be more ideal. If not, make sure you have enough room in your kitchen for the plants to grow.

2. Light – Although sunlight is great for plants and humans alike, it’s not a required light source for growing. For less than $25, you can set up a fluorescent or LED light source for the plants. Photosynthesis happens with light regardless of the source. The sun is merely an incredibly intense source of converting light into energy for the plant. Although you don’t have to leave the florescent light on all night, it won’t hurt the plants if you do.

3. Temperature – One of the most important aspects you need to consider is keeping the right temperature. According to most seeds for flowers and edibles, the temperature needs to be over 67 degrees Fahrenheit. As long as you can maintain the temperature around 72 degrees in the home, your plants could flourish. This is important for the cold radiating off of a window at night can cool your plants. Keep them in an area where you can maintain the temperature. Some people will incorporate heat lamps above plants in order to combine warmth and light.

4. Water – Warm air and damp soil could cause mold to form on your soil. You don’t want to keep your plants completely enclosed, as circulation of air can keep those molds from forming. As the sunlight is more than likely not going to shine on the soil in an indoor garden, you won’t have to water the plants as often. Sunlight helps evaporate the water in soil and without it the soil retains more water.

5. Safety – If you have pets, your plants could be subjected to damage from the animals eating the beginning stages of the stems. There are a number of ways to keep animals from invading your plants ranging from using citrus peals around planters to buying screen and building a cheap box to enclose the plants. Placing them too close to furnace vents and other HVAC devices could also be damaging causing the plant to wilt and die.

Building an indoor garden isn’t difficult as long as you manage the basics listed above. This can provide you with a near endless supply of herbs for cooking and edibles for eating. Of course the more elaborate you become with your garden the more it will produce. Many will go so far as to building small green houses onto the home for year round applications. You’re only limited by the size of the area you want to use.

They’re handy baking cups. Traditionally, they’re used for custards, crème brulee, and desserts. They’re great for fancy little cakes and cobblers. We have a recipe for a blueberry lemon crisp we were going to bake in these cups and just haven’t gotten that far. You can convert many desserts—like cobblers and crisps—into individual desserts baked in ramekins. Little chicken pot pies work in ramekins.

Grandma’s Cleaning Tips: Every Kitchen’s Beautiful in its Own Way- OR Not?!

tammyskitchen2

 

I love a nice, clean kitchen! Well, it’s not always clean or (clutter-free), for the most part. 😉

 

I don’t know about you, but I’m a gal (Grandma) who likes to see change and updates every once in awhile. That definitely includes the kitchen! 🙂 A kitchen needs to be clean, sanitary and of course, full of warmth, charm and hospitality. If you don’t think your kitchen fits well in that category, do something about it! You’ve got your own imagination, use it! However, it does help if you are crafty by nature, and you have an eye for design.

kitchen

Let’s say your kitchen hasn’t been updated since the 90’s or even the 80’s. Yeah, you have your work cut out for you!

 

So let’s get this “virtual, kitchen-spruce-up” party started!

 

Walls

 

Say, you just bought or moved into an old house and the kitchen hasn’t been updated since the (early) 80’s, it most certainly requires lots of fun and colorful updating. Most likely, your kitchen has been generously graced with that awful yellow and green wallpaper! You KNOW the kind I’m referring to. 😉

 

paint

 

Time to get out the scrapers and get to work. I know, bummer! Although your hard work will be well worth it with a couple splashes of warm-colored paint. For me, I tend to like darker colors for (both) a dining room and kitchen!

Borders

 

Now borders are somewhat of a controversial nature; you either love them or hate them! For me, it all depends on the size of the room and colors involved. Sometimes a simple border makes a perfect statement and also encompasses the final touch. They also sometimes make a room look larger. You decide!

Cabinets

 

I remember some funky looking, white, metal cabinets WAY-BACK when I was a little girl. Thank goodness kitchen decor, appliances and styles have come a long way, seriously! Now you have various kinds of wood and colors to choose from. You can even get by with a couple coats of paint if you currently have some old, wooden cabinets. However, it will depend on just how old they are. Cabinets are a tad more expensive than paint and borders…choose wisely, depending on the look and style you are looking for. Most cabinets today, are good for fix ups.

You will find tips for cleaning kitchen cabinets Here

 

I would love to do this in my kitchen someday!
You could also remove a couple of the cabinet doors and just have shelves. Or, you could install glass in place of the doors. That in itself would spruce up a kitchen considerably.

 

Foliage, Flowers and Plants

tulips

 

If you haven’t experimented with flowers or foliage before, you’d be pleasantly surprised at how much they can brighten up a room. Although for a kitchen, just some simple greenery will do the job nicely for on top of cabinets, (if there’s room). Small, colorful plants will always brighten up any window sill.

Flooring

 

Most people (today), have some kind of ceramic tile or wood flooring in their kitchens. Carpet and linoleum was more in style for a kitchen back in the days. However, a lot of old houses of course, had the wooden floors. You can dress up wooden flooring by polishing and with some stylish throw rugs.

 

Going way back in time, people had dirt floors

 

Also, if you have a large dining room or kitchen with a bay window, a nice chair or bench with some throw pillows (to match the rugs) would nicely compliment the rooms.

 

There is always room for improvement when updating decor and furnishings in your home. Most of the time, just the smallest things can make the most difference. 🙂
