Reports... How to clean carpets. “In cleaning carpets be aware that shampoos
and even plain water can temporarily or permanently alter the size and color of
carpeting. When you use any water-based treatment, avoid over wetting. Never
allow water to penetrate to the back of the carpet. The backing can be damaged
and the color may bleed through to the floor. When seeking to remove stains you
should blot and not scrub.
How to remove
some stains: Inks use rubbing alcohol. Battery acid use baking soda. Chewing
gum use Ben Gay, extra strength. Light stains use laundry detergent. Lipstick,
shoe polish and candle wax use POG (paint, oil, grease removal). pet odors use
Tar and rubber
cement use petroleum jelly or diluted white vinegar. Fresh blood use cold
water. Dried blood blot with peroxide then enzyme detergent. Butter or cheese
scrape off excess, blot with cleaning solvent. Caulk scrape then blot with
scrape then spray with WD-40 and let remain for a few minutes. Then use a small
bristle brush to dissolve. Respray with WD-40 and apply detergent solution to
spray area. Work again with brush and blot then rinse. Dirt/mud allow to dry.
Use a brush or
vacuum then wash with detergent solution, then rinse. Dried paint try a POG.
Heel marks just wipe off with an all-purpose cleaner. Candy, coffee, tea, cola,
juices, ketchup blot with detergent solution. If stains remains try vinegar
Reports … How to cleanse and remove sin. “And the blood of Jesus Christ his Son
cleanseth us from all sin" (I John 1:7). Jesus was the Lamb of God Who was
sacrificed to take away sin. “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away
(cleanses) the sin of the world” (John 1:29).
This is the
first time that sin was removed. In the past sin was covered in atonement for
one year. “What can take away my sin...nothing but the blood of Jesus.” When
you receive Christ He cleanses your sin and changes your life (II Cor. 5:17).
It works! I tried it when I was 23 years old and it worked for me!
