Geesh I hope that title doesn't bring in a bunch pervs.
Obviously we are living on a very very tight budget right now. Which means we aren't just replacing things -- we are doing our best to fix them or reuse, etc. You know, the way we really should all be living anyways? Although I was once a major pro at this, I'm a little rusty right now.
The Fatsak has become an essential part of our living room ever since. And many people have enjoyed it (and some even went out and bought their own.). It is extremely comfortable.
Anyways, this last week one of the dogs had an accident on the Fatsak. And we aren't sure exactly what kind (it was obviously not poo). Whether it was retch or wet didn't even actually matter at this point. It had to be deep cleaned. And that was the dilemma. The Fatsak is larger than the washer and we didn't know how much penetration there was into the stuffing and lets face it, it was clean the whole thing or throw it out.
And throwing out a $200 piece of furniture that just needs to be cleaned is just not in me. And taking it in to be cleaned somewhere is just not in the checkbook. And a surface job was not going to get it for this.
So we brainstormed.
And this was my super frugal answer to this problem:
And the whole point of this boring post is just to point out that we all normally have the answer somewhere in our homes to fix problems that need to be handled with no or little money. And it has reawakened in me the thought processes of how to do with what you have.
And right now I need that!
