I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and their client.
This past weekend I was invited to visit the 9th Street Italian Market Festival. The Italian Market in Philadelphia is the nation’s largest outdoor market. On any given day your senses will be assaulted by the rainbow of colorful produce, the scent of baked goods and coffee and the variety of fresh seafood and meats at the butcher shops.
The Italian Market Festival is a gathering of the entire community to celebrate with music, food, shopping and crafts. We were able to be an Italian for a day with food from Chef Peter McAndrews of Paesanos and pastries from Isgro Pasticceria.
This is also a spot for brands to show off some of their newest and best products to the thousands of people walking by. Mohawk Flooring, #LicensetoSpill tour was in attendance to share their newest technology, SmartStrand® carpet flooring. Chip Wade from HGTV’s Elbow Room was on hand to show off the beauty of design of the carpet.
SmartStrand® has permanent stain and soil resistance without the addition of treatments or aftermarket barriers. We watched as children were allowed to spray a carpet remnant with soy sauce and fruit drinks and the stains were removed with water. Plain, room temperature water brought back a tan carpet back to it’s original color.
In our own homes a spray bottle isn’t going to get our entire home clean. A carpet cleaner with warm water and mild soap (like dish soap) is all that’s needed to get out surface dirt, spills and soil.
Not only is it easy to clean and maintain but it’s eco friendly, Dupont Sorona. SmartStrand® is produced using renewable sources, reducing our dependence on energy for production and manufacturing. This makes choosing SmartStrand® flooring a great choice all around.
Mohawk is the world’s largest flooring manufacturer, selling its beautiful flooring products through retail partners. Enter to win your own 6′ x 9′ SmartStrand® Silk bound carpet rug from Mohawk Flooring. We are already Mohawk users for our living room area rug. It’s withstanding the abuse and traffic from a family of 5 and 2 dogs quite well but I’d love to see SmartStrand® in action on the rest of our home.
