I found silly putty in the carpet in Becca's room. Not just this one spot either but several. Damn that Easter Bunny for bringing them Silly Putty! I went online hoping for some magical way to get it out and I found one!
So here is one of the dreaded spots, and yes, it bears a striking resemblance to cat vomit:
Now you simply take some hand sanitizer and rub it into the spot and it magically dissolves the silly putty and leaves no stain! Now I imagine it was the alcohol in the hand sanitizer that removed it, so I think that straight alcohol would work too, though I do not know if it would damage the coloring of the rug so test a spot first. I guess I should have even done a test spot with the hand sanitizer but I was thinking, what the hell, it really couldn't look worse.
SSSHHH... Don't tell the kids but this was actually kinda fun and I didn't mind that there were three spots to clean up!
