Have I told you that I love you yet today my friend??? Back again to make another of your nothing less than fabulous recipes. Used my lemon eucalyptus oils (hubby thinks that makes the house smell "clean"). WOW did this do a good job on my carpet. I have a golden retriever, a hairy black cat and a 3 year old. What little carpet we have collects odors and this worked fabulously. THANKS Prose. Recipenapped for Veg*n Swap July 2009.
