Coma Weekly FREECYCLE Digest

Freecycling is when a person passes on, for free, an unwanted item to another person who needs that item. From silverware to mobile homes, people worldwide are choosing to freecycle rather than discard.

[FreecycleComa] OFFER: Huge, old, wall to wall carpet and pad

Just thought I’d throw it up here before it goes to the landfill. This is the wall to wall carpet from a 14’ by 21’ room. The color is hard to determine. It’s no doubt quite dusty and rather old (maybe from the 80s?), but in pretty good condition for its age. I know the previous owners had a small dog, but from what I can see on the backside of the carpet, it doesn’t seem to have many stains. Maybe ten. One of the stains looks like wine. Several look like pee and one stain seems to be blood. I think you can get rid of all of this with some excellent carpet stain remover and bleach.

As you can see the blood stain isn't that bad. I'm not sure what happened to make it but I am pretty sure it can be cleaned.

Hard to imagine that anyone wouldn’t want this since it’s so big and still in one piece, a person could carpet a whole room with it if they didn’t mind the age and need for cleaning.

The pad looks like it has quite a lot of dust/dirt in it, but it’s still, well you know…squishy.

It’s on the curb at our house, so if you want it, let me know and I’ll send the address. I’ve already scheduled bulk pickup for tomorrow morning, so you’ll have to act fast. :)

[FreecycleComa] Offer: toaster over / broiler

Used toaster oven that works with some problems It does not broil because the upper coil no longer works.  And because of that, the toasting only occurs via the bottom coil…Baking OK. Should be used for something other than baking or toasting.
