Why You Should Plan Now For Thanksgiving

September has begun and you can already feel autumn in the air.

It didn't seem like we had much a summer this year. Maybe the weather will stay nice until the middle of October.

Yikes it will soon be Canada's Thanksgiving, we celebrate it on October 12th this year. That will mean at the end of September we will have a rush week.

The last minute rugs that need to be cleaned. Last minute people will have until Wednesday October 7th after that the best we can do is Badger out the loose dirt and debris from their rugs.

The week after Thanksgiving will be very busy as well because we will be cleaning all the spills from the feast.

Here is some spill treatment tips:

  • Before Thanksgiving come into Luv-A-Rug at 2-4144 Wilkinson Rd., Victoria, BC to get your free bottle of our spot remover.
  • Dry oatmeal and salt are also good absorbers of wet spills. Please don't use baking soda, it can yellow wool.
  • Another good trick to have a separate serving area and only have the dining table for eating. We all know how full the table gets with all the dishes of food.
Having them separate from the eating area may cut down on spill accidents. Also make sure that anyone with four legs is kept clear of the food.

I know it is hard, but they love turkey too and an unguarded plate in the kitchen can be too tempting for them too resist.

As with humans, too much turkey and fixings can upset our pets stomach as well and that causes a whole new set of issues.

Have a happy and spill free Thanksgiving Canadian and American alike.
