I could cry right now, thinking of how stupid I've been.
In the living room hangs a beautiful candle holder on the wall.The only problem was that my expensive scented candles had made a huge black stain in the ceiling. Soot............
And then I made a huge mistake by taking a damp cloth and try to take it off.
A really huge mistake!!!
I just spread out the soot, making a really ugly, dirty stain. I looked ten times worse. Now I need to have the whole ceiling painted.
I don't even want to call a painter and ask how much it will cost....
So for 3 weeks I've been looking at my ruined ceiling. Until just 5 minutes ago. I took my rubba scrubba and began swiping my ceiling. All the soot came off. Well all but the stain.....
If only I had looked up how to clean soot before. Then I would never have taken a damp cloth. And just tried the rubba scrubba as soot has to "stick" to something. With the rubba scrubba
I want to help all the flying and fluttering girls and share my story with them.
Meanwhile I just have to find a way to get the stain gone, I could still try alcohol or ammonia. Or just take my loss and call the painter and have my ceiling repainted :(
