Let the vodka sit there for about 15 minutes or so and then scrub with a toothbrush if necessary. Otherwise you can just wipe the caulk gently with a microfiber or sponge.
Put some vodka in a glass or bowl to hold the pieces you want to clean. If there is heavy soiling use an old toothbrush to loosen and then swish again and dry with a soft cloth.
Upset Stomach Accidents
Sick kids, dogs or you? Start by removing any solid items and then spray on some vodka, let it sit for a few minutes and blot with a paper towel, or a microfiber cloth. It’s important to NOT scrub, just blot, scrubbing will actually make it worse and ruin the tuft of your carpet. Continue to clean with the vodka until you are satisfied, be sure not to over saturate, that just pushes the stuff under the carpet and when it dries it will come back up. Remove an excess liquid and use a fan to dry the area quickly. Not only does vodka help to clean the carpet but it also can remove odor. Be sure to test in an inconspicuous area first.
