As we all know the festive period is busy, fun and also rather messy! Our homes are likely to see a lot of mishaps and our carpets and upholsteries a lot of stains. With this in mind I’ve been testing the Stain Eraser from Bissell on some of the 12 stains of Christmas. See how I got on in this short video.
What are the 12 stains of Christmas I hear you ask?
Christmas (and life to be fair) is all about chocolate. Chocolate coins, tins of chocolates, chocolate pudding, chocolate Santas – basically everything chocolate! Chocolate can be a nightmare to remove once it’s been trodden into the carpets and sofas.
2. Children’s crafts
Kids like to get creative at Christmas time, making cards, playing with their new craft presents and simply passing the time in the school holidays. Things like paint, glitter and glue can be a nightmare to remove if it spills onto the carpet.
3. Mulled wine
One glass of wine too many and you’re quite likely to end up swishing it onto those comfy sofas and the floors!
4. The aftermath of all that mulled wine…
If, like me, you cannot handle your alcohol (I blame Aria…) Boxing Day can be a hard day. Some of us may not even make it to the bathroom in time…
Ah that lovely gravy.. it’s not so lovely when it gets spilled all over the floor though is it?
6. Dog urine
Over excited dogs, or just plain lazy dogs like mine, may also have a few accidents over the festive period.
7. Pine needles
We’ve never had a real Christmas tree, I know, woe is me, so I wasn’t aware that pine needles secrete Tannin which can leave behind an ugly stain on wood floors.
8. Cranberry sauce
Another delicious treat that we like to smother our meals with at Christmas time, another dark stain to contend with if spilled!
9. Fat and grease
Christmas is all about being naughty and therefore fat and grease are essential right? The nasty stains that can get left behind really aren’t.
10. Mud, puddles and grass stains
With visitors-a-plenty and dog walks to burn off the food along with the typically wet British weather, chances are people and/or animals will drag in mud onto your floors.
The dancing that comes shortly after consuming Eggnog (just me?) can lead to a few spills, especially if the dancing involves holding a large glass in one hand! No one wants the smell of stale milk hanging around.
Even Santa makes a mess! You didn’t think that the big old man climbed up and down all those chimneys without getting messy did you?
The Stain Eraser managed to erase all traces of the Christmas stains that I tested it on. I am super impressed with this cordless, hand held stain remover and can see it getting a lot of use over the festive period.
The Stain Eraser comes with everything that you need to get started, it has an RRP of £99.99 and can be purchased from Amazon here.
