Can I Walk On Carpet When It’s Damp?
Okay, so you absolutely MUST get to the bathroom and it’s surrounded by a carpeted and newly-cleaned savannah. So how do you get across your carpets without upsetting them? Oooo you’re gonna love this solution – it’s easy, cheap AND fun!
Grocery bags! I kid you not, plastic grocery bags are a godsend for dealing with damp carpets. Put them on over your socks (or even over your shoes if you’re dashing in and dashing out) and tie the handles around your ankles. Leave a handful of them by your front door so everyone can wear the latest designer fashion footwear while your home is in drip-dry status.
Grocery bags are completely underrated and underused for this purpose – they work like snowshoes for carpet, distributing your weight somewhat so the carpet doesn’t get horrendously compressed in its damp state, while protecting the damp fibers from any dirt on your socks or shoes. Plus you can get around your house! Yay!
One important thing to note if you’re going to try this suggestion – plastic grocery bags are SLIPPY! So make sure you move slowly and hold on to something stable as you move around, especially if you have to get down stairs.
Also try to stick to the edges of the room while the carpet is still damp – high traffic areas are already prone to fiber compression and you obviously want your carpet to dry looking as new and fluffy as possible. Help it out by not walking in its damp state on already high traffic areas.
