The floor here looks strange.
If anyone came in they would either think it has snowed in here, or else we had had one hell of a party with coke strewn all over the carpet. However it is one line of coke I would not like to snort.
I have taken to laying down layers of bicarbonate of soda. I sprinkle it liberally all over the bedroom and living room carpets and today it’s the turn of the carpet in the South Wing. It looks a right mess but it does the job magnificently.
One of the small problems with an incontinent dog is that she tends to pee all over the place. I spend my time mopping up puddles and lakes so I get through vast quantities of kitchen paper. I had a grocery delivery yesterday and the delivery bloke commented on the number of rolls of kitchen paper I had ordered. “Incontinent dog” I said and he laughed very sympathetically.
However kitchen paper only goes so far when it comes to lakes on a carpet. The residue festers away in the carpet and eventually produces an almighty stench. It is hard to describe but I would imagine it is akin to a body decaying in a septic tank. The air shimmers with it. It is fucking rank.
I then discovered the joys of bicarbonate of soda. It works brilliantly. I sprinkle it all over the floor, leave it for a few hours and then whack out the Dyson. I alternate this treatment with carpet shampooing.
An incontinent dog is a lot of hard work.
