Don't get me wrong. My kids are so very precious to me, and they have taught me more about love, selflessness, and joy. But they have also taught me about patience, stains, and the power that a single wet-wipe can yield.
We recently discovered, like Audrey and her husband, we too are going to have a third little boy to add to the chaos and awesomeness that is our family. After the shock wore off, we were both so very excited, and now we can not wait to meet the new little guy.
Soooooo, I'm basically just warming you all up for why my kitchen chairs look like this.
|Not only are there random food and drink splotches, but there are pen markings and acrylic paint that have been there since last Christmas.|
Step 1: Fill a spray bottle with rubbing alcohol.
Step 2: Soak the cushion with the alcohol.
Step 3: Scrub like you've never scrubbed before.
|I used this scrub brush instead of a sponge because...well, you saw my chairs right?|
And here are my results.
Impressed? I was! Yes, I know they're not perfect. There's still subtle stains there, but at least there's no more threat of disease and plague from sitting on them.
Here's a side-by-side of the same chairs.
Notice, most of the acrylic paint, and all of the pen markings came off! I must say, I definitely pinned a win with this one. Even three boys don't stand a chance against my findings from Pinterest. ;)
