Starting from bottom to top, now that the floor is finished in the conservatory, we’re putting the furniture back in a piece at a time.
Charlie began by vacuuming the rug and rug pad completely.
I pulled out my old Bissell rug cleaner and shampooed the rug.
This convinced me that my old machine was ready for the dumpster. It leaked and when I tried to use it on the upholstered love seats it squirted all over the place.
My friend let me borrow her newer-model upright Bissell. It’s much easier to use because it doesn’t hook up to the sink. I changed the water twice in the canister. Even though I had already shampooed once, more grit and dirt came out of the fibers.
I also used this machine on my love seats. The original white wool upholstery will never come clean but it did release some dirt.
Next project is to put the slipcovers back on the loveseats.
