My family and I were invited to the Long Grove Chocolate Fest this past weekend to check out the Mohawk “License to Spill” crew and learn about Mohawk’s SmartStrand. Unfortunately, HGTV Celebrity Designer Chip Wade wasn’t able to make it as originally planned, but we got to meet Co-host of The Better Show, Audra Lowe. Audra was nice enough to pose for a picture with Campbell, and then later she and Chef Tiffany from Sweet Whimsey served some fondue to Cooper and Dexter while they filmed a segment for The Better Show.

We also had a chance to stain some carpet! Well, we got a chance to TRY to stain some carpet. Mohawk provided carpet samples and a TON of stuff I’d never let my children have near my carpet – chocolate syrup, red Kool-Aid, soy sauce. They even had red wine. They invited me and the kids to do our worst. I read a bit about SmartStrand beforehand so I was expecting some pretty serious stain blocking, but I have to admit, I was still surprised. Here’s the carpet square I tested with the soy sauce:

 That’s just water in that bottle! With SmartStrant you don’t need to use harsh chemicals or cleaners, just warm water, a rag, and you can use mild detergent (like dish soap) if needed. As you can see, we didn’t even need detergent to get this soy sauce out. I did ask if there was anything that would stain and the Mohawk representative said that it’s likely that oil or grease would be difficult to get out and could leave a stain and that they can’t guarantee that vomit won’t leave a stain because of the stomach acid.

Another great feature of Mohawk’s SmartStrand is that it will last. Most stain treatments are applied on top of the fiber, meaning that over time they will wear off. Mohawk’s SmartStrand is different because it’s built into the fiber itself, meaning it will last as long as your carpet does.

And when your kids have a face like this, how can you not worry about carpet stains?
