I have tan carpet in my boat, and spill coffee in it all the time. I wet the inside down and use Simple Green diluted in water. Brush it around a little and rinse. Inevitably, I will tip over my coffee the first time I go out afterwards.

Ditto on the simple green for most stains. Has taken our grease spots, blood, dog pee, "chaw" stains, coffee and dirt spots in my tan boat carpet. Wet the area, spray it on, scrub area and rinse with clean water. About 3.50 for a spray bottle at menards. I use the spray bottle at full strength per directions on bottle for spot cleaning.

PS: it gets stains out of housecarpet as well. Just had all our carpets cleaned on thursday and yesterday my wife had a bottle of babyfood carrots break and spill all the way up our white stairs. The Mrs was freakin out cause the spray-on carpet clearer didnt get it out. I used the Green and had them out in about 15 minutes. Chalked up some big-time points for that one grin.gif

What did he do now? You fish much this weekend? We're going up tommorow to try our luck. If the Green doesn't work I have some stuff that might.

It looked like he had dog sh-t on the bottom of his shoes after we got out fishing. Luckily it wasn't but he did muddy it up a little. Then in his frustration he kicked the leach bucket over and a pound of them were crawling all over the place. Nothing major but it could only happen to him. Fishing was good on Sat. and we even managed to put 62 miles on. Slower yesterday.

I use my small Bissell carpet cleaner and it works great. That way it cleans and sucks up the excess water.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
