Plaster of Paris Emergency!!!

Help!  I returned from picking the girls up from school to find Plaster of Paris all over my living room.  The dogs found a box of it in the gararge, dragged it through the doggy door and went crazy ripping the box open.


My vacuum will pick up some of it, but most of it is ground into the rug.  The wood floors are all covered in a fine powder too.  Anyone know how to get rid of this???

Anyone want a goldendoodle and/or golden retriever?

No!!! Oh my gosh, if the vacuum won't pick it up I'm not sure what to do :( Maybe take the rug outside and beat it??? Maybe call a carpet cleaning company and see if they offer any suggestions for you to try yourself. Sorry friend :(

Oh no!
Is that an area rug? Maybe take it outside and beat it with a broom? A few dry swiffers to pick up the dust on the hard floors...definitely don't get it wet! Good luck!

I second the idea of taking it outside and beating it out. I wouldn't use water though. that could make a mess. UGH! what a bummer!

I would be demanding a new rug...kind of like how our sweet pup has managed to unravel the sides of my new navy rug. Yup.
