Luxuriating on my fresh smelling carpet while reading today's newspaper (some people still do it the analog way), I realised that I forgot to share a traditional DIY trick with the blogosphere. If you have a carpet to clean (especially deep nap (?) persian rugs), then the best way to do that is in winter when there's a lot of snow. Take the carpet outside, spread it over the snow surface with the walk-on side facing down towards the snow and have a go at it with a beater. Let it sit there for a few hours. That way, you'll get a carpet that's as good (or better) as new without using any dodgy chemicals. Admittedly, this trick has limited global applicability ...

That is great - wanna bring your rug to vancouver, we've got rain. Well I'm sure you can pay the fee to go up to the ski slopes... Haha..now that would be a riot...
