Vommats: cheaper than a professional cleaning

Have you ever had a kid really wreck a couch? Like, oh my goodness, what are we going to do with that? I have, as you may have been able to guess, given this blog and this company. But I'm not the only one... 

 So it happens. Sometimes you can get by with a quick Google of "how to clean vomit from a couch" but sometimes... sometimes it is much worse. This is largely dependent on... and I can't believe I am typing this and please forgive me... what they'd recently eaten (and on that note, let's give the makers of Tylenol a round of applause for the new dye-free options).

Have you ever had to have a couch professionally cleaned? I have, and it is expensive. Like, several hundred dollars. It's less than a new couch but more than you'd want to pay to make that spot go away. There's another option, that I've also tried and that is renting a giant Rug Doctor vacuum from a local grocery store. Don't even get me started on that process... it is less expensive than a pro but you make up for that in sweat equity. There's also a mental hurdle to overcome; if I'm renting this to tackle the worst of the worst in my home... surely all prior renters have been doing the same. So I am bringing their business into my business and it spirals from there.

So let's back it up. Let's cover the couch up before they yak all over it... but with what? What is soft to lay on, absorbent yet water tight, and available in your bathroom closet? A Vommat, of course. So stock up and be ready. Avoid the professional cleaning or a cardio battle with a Rug Doctor. Your future self will thank you.
