License to Spill Tour in LA @MohawkFlooring | #licensetospill #followthetruck #shop #cbias #smartstrand #LALobsterFest

Do you have small kids? Tell me – how often do you clean your carpets every year? For us, not as often as we should! It’s frustrating, because right after we get them cleaned, there goes another spill, and, well, some of the red juice becomes permanent. Getting them cleaned is hard work too. I’ve tried renting the machine from the grocery store, and after trying to do it myself (I’m not that strong), I vowed to just ALWAYS rent a professional. I had a hard time carrying it up and down the stairs, it took forever to dry, and it still didn’t look clean. Now imagine doing that four to six times a year (more if you have pets and your own machine).

My friends and I watched a short demonstration from Mohawk (see short video below) and you’re not going to believe this, but we watched Mollie spray Powerade, soy sauce, and red wine in their carpet, then rinsed it off with just water! NO WAY!! Yes way!! (Even the red wine came off!)



Mohawk’s SmartStrand has built-in permanent stain and soil resistance that will never wear off! How? Instead of topically treating the carpets (like most carpets) which will wear off over time, SmartStrand has it built-into the fibers! Amazing!

Say Goodbye to Carpet Cleaners!

You’ll like that SmartStrand is extremely easy to clean, and you don’t have to use any harsh chemicals or cleaners. Just use a dishrag, warm water, and a mild detergent like a dish soap. You saw how the red wine came off.

We also met JD Roberto from The Better Show. Here is JD with his TV crew and the lovely Noramae Munster of Ports O’Call Dining.
Do you watch the show? JD is a crack-up! Here, JD is interviewing a bystander and says, “Hey, you have a lobster on your brain…” (silence).
JD is about to feast on this beautiful lobster dish from Ports O’Call Dining.

Going to festivals are always so much fun with friends. If you look closely at what JD is holding, it’s a picture of Justin Bieber! (He won it from one of the carnival games for a gag gift.) At the end of our short visit, we all got our “License to Spill” and was off to enjoy the Lobster Festival.
