MLIP Wednesday: Sticky Floors

The other day, I woke up and made my way to the kitchen and I was given pause as I noticed something sprayed all over the floor of the dining room.  I followed the path of trajectory and discovered that a bottle of wine made by, and give to us by, friends had popped its cork.  Grape wine was sprayed across the dining room floor, down the wall, in the plate of the light switch, soaked into the carpet… it was everywhere.

Surprisingly, it takes a lot of effort to clean up a wine spill.  The above image was taken after, if I recall correctly, the fifth mopping of the floor.  I kept walking around barefooted as that was the best gauge to tell if the floor was still sticky.  I picked up a bit of filth on my feet as evidenced by the footprints.  I was amused at seeing my tracks and snapped this photo.

It took two more water changes and moppings to get what I was hoping was the last of the spill cleaned up.

I think the floor is still a bit sticky.

    Yep all alcohol leaves a mess but wine is especially sticky. Plus you have not lost the opportunity to enjoy it. Bummer !!!

    lol. I wonder if kitty litter would work on that kind of spill. Just dump it over the spill and sweep it up after it has done its absorption thing. Sounds like a plan to me!
