How to Clean up after a Medicine Spill on Carpet

How to clean up after medicine spill on carpetWhether you’ve spilled Calpol in a zombie like state in the middle of the night, or your little one has spat back 5 mls of what they deem to be poison, a medicine spill on carpet is not what you need. Cough syrups, liquid antibiotics, and pain relief for kids are usually a sticky consistency that cling onto carpet fibres and can seem tricky to remove.

    First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
    Thank you!

    Hi great blog! Does running a blog such as this take a large amount of work?
    I have no knowledge of computer programming however I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyhow, if you have any recommendations or techniques for
    new blog owners please share. I know this is off topic but I just had to ask.

    Thanks a lot!
