Shakers and Movers

Dear Readers,
We’ve all heard the term “shakers and movers”.  But today Mimi has another type of “mover” on her mind.  Oh you know who you are!  You love to change room settings and are regularly moving furniture from one place to another.  There is one hazard involved in this operation:  furniture indentations in the carpet.  Well, how to get rid of them?  Mimi has a tip – actually a real estate agent in PA gave me this solution and it actually works!  Just place ice cubes in the indentations and let them slowly melt and then dry.  Amazingly the carpet springs back to life!  You may have to do this more than once.  Give it a try!
