Lilly’s Big Boo Boo

Kid Proof Crypton Fabrics

Our Granddaughter Lilly can do no wrong. Our little artist loves play dough, colored pencils and crayons.

One day she wandered into the sun room with a dark crayon. Before anyone had a clue, there was a new crayon design on the side of the sofa. Oh, Oh! Well at least she has good color sense. The crayon was navy.

Lilly’s mom sent us this picture of Lilly’s latest art project. She was hoping her Papa would have an easy way to erase Lilly’s Boo Boo. Luckily for everyone the sofa material was a kid proof Crypton fabric. This video shows the formula that we used to remove Lilly’s boo boo.

The crayon came out and everyone lived happily ever after, including the sofa.

Dust in the Wind

Dust in the Wind

Breathe Easy with Wool Carpeting

No, We're not talking about the song from 1977 by Kansas. Winds are blowing all over the place. You've got your Nor'Easter in the East, Norther in the Midwest, Chinook in the Rockies, Santa Ana, Diablo, and Sundowner winds here in California. There's Taku in Alaska and to the farthest of the far west are the Pali and Kona Winds of Hawaii. You can also throw in occasional gales, cyclones, twisters, and dust devils just to make sure we're paying attention. With all this wind, there's all manner of debris flying around pretty much all the time. It kicks up pollutants to enter your nostrils but you can breathe easy with wool carpet.

Wool Filters the Air We Breathe

breathe easy with wool carpet

It is nice to know that carpets of 100% pure wool can help out. Here's how: Wool has an amazing ability to attract and hold airborne pollutants such as sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen oxide among other niceties. It also attracts dust particles, pollen and other allergens and holds them in place until they can be harmlessly vacuumed away. This helps you create a healthier home.

Cumulative evidence strongly suggests that carpets of 100% pure wool have a beneficial effect on people's health. Not long ago a major European Community Respiratory Health study of nearly 20,000 people at 30 centers in 17 countries concluded that wall-to-wall installations of wool carpets in bedrooms were associated with dramatically reduced incidents of allergy and asthmatic symptoms. This effect was consistent over all 30 centers studied.

Breathe easy with wool carpet. Wool is ideal for allergy-prone individuals. Allergy to wool is virtually non-existent. Wool carpeting acts as a natural air purifier, does not promote the growth of dust mites or bacteria and is inherently fire safe through its natural flame-retardant qualities.

So when the winds blow in your neighborhood quit wasting money on Allerest, Clariton, and Flonase. Have Stange's install 100% pure wool carpeting or add a wool area rug instead. You can learn more about the wonders of wool here.
