Avoiding Costly Pinterest Fails

When I visit my favorite website, Pinterest, I often feel as if I’m getting the best tips and tricks from some pretty crafty genuises.

When it comes to my most favorite site in the whole world, the crafty geniuses aren’t always geniuses. I have been saving and hacking pins for a while now and not only have I mastered some pins, I have failed miserably at others.

Not only is it disappointing when your project doesn’t turn out, it can also lead to damage in your home. Mixing ingredients improperly or applying your Pinterest concoction to different types of materials (wool v. nylon) could cause you a costly fail. We’d rather not have your project featured on the Pinterest Project Gone Bad page so give us a call at 800-727-8990 before you apply those home remedies to your carpet and we’ll do our best to save you from a fail.
