Question #1) Sorry! Check with the Adminastrators. They'll know what to do. And if worse comes to worse Allie, you'll have to create a new account and start over. Hopefully it won't come to that. Didn't this happen once before to you? If someone hacked into your account, I hope they find out who it is.
Question #2) Allie, a strong stain remover should get the blood out of your upholstry. If it's car upholstry, you should consult with the dealership the car was purchased from. Or any automotive store should be able to help you find the right kind of stain remover for blood. But more importantly Allie, are you okay? Blood in the upholstry? Did you have an accident? I hope everything is okay!
Allie, I left ATP World this afternoon for a few minutes to find out answers for your blood stain removal question. And I haven't been able to get back into ATP World until about 10:45 pm EST Sunday night. But I'm glad I checked back in to ATP World one last time before I go to bed. And to my surprise, ATP World is running again!
Now Allie, I'm assuming you've talked to your Mother or sisters or somebody else in the interim and found out how to remove blood stains from upholstry. But in case you haven't, I found 2 short reports on the internet on how to remove blood stains from upholstry. I hope it helps. First, there is a report located at www.msue.msu.edu/msue/imp/mod02/01500453.html
The other easy way to remove blood stains is to use Hydrogen Peroxide to remove blood from clothing or furniture. Rub gently. It will probably work on upholstry, too. But a car is only a material object. It sounds like you and your friend had quite a scare! I hope you are both alright and on the road to recovery! Allie, it sounds like your girlfriend damaged her Lung or Lungs. Even though that cna be serious, better that than her heart. Lungs can recover better than hearts can.
And Allie, when I first read about you wanting to remove blood stains, I thought you may have been injured. I remember you recently said in WTA World's Non - Tennis forum that you had once been stabbed by a girl! I'm glad you weren't hurt. And I wish your friend a speedy recovery! :kiss:
P.S. - Allie, when you were unable to access WTA World. And when I was unable to access ATP World this afternoon, I posted a thread about that in WTA World's Non- Tennis forum. And alot of people had similar problems accesing ATP World! And then the thread got moved to the Bugs and Errors forum. I believe the main problem was in a Server. That figures! These are tennis boards afterall! But I hope you can now access WTA World again as Alexis. If not, maybe you could sign up there as Allie, too. That way, you'll atleast have a backup name to login and post with.
Call an expert for advice. An Automotive store. A Car Dealership. Or the place you rented it from. You'll recover from this, Allie. This can't be the first time something bad has happened in a rented car. The place you rented it from should know what to do. Good luck! And good night!
Allie, I spoke with ATI Carpet and Upholstry Cleaning on Long Island. I'm thinking of having some rugs professionally cleaned in the near future. And while I was calling ATI, I decided to ask them about your situation, too. The lady there said to go to the store and buy a bottle of White Distilled Vinegar and put it in a spray bottle. Using a spray will keep you from over wetting the blood stains and causing further problems. And only use White Distilled Vinegar.
And Lisa said to use a 1/2 and 1/2 mixture of White Distilled Vinegar and Water. And she also said to work in an upward blotting motion. That way you will avoid jamming the blood stains down deeper. She also said that using the Vinegar should help with the smell.
What kind of unpholstry is it? Cloth, Suede or Vinyl?
Good luck with it!
And Allie, I doubt the Car Rental company will make you pay for the car. If they are reputable, they should understand that accidents happen.
I hope you and your friend are feeling better today. Don't worry about the car too much. It's a problem that will pass with time.
Good luck with the Vinegar! Use only White Distilled Vinegar. No other Vinegar will suffice. That's what the uphlostry Lady told me. And mix it with a 50/50 combination of White Distilled vinegar and Water in a spray bottle. A spray bottle will keep you from over wetting the stain, which would onlycause more problems.
I'm glad your friend is on the road to recovery! Did she suffer a collapsed lung?
Allie, it's good that you got your password back, and are back at WTA World. Did someone hack into your account like you origanally thought?
And don't use too much perfume in the car! But White Diamonds from Elizabeth Taylor is wonderful! Did I really say that?
I hope you sleep better! I'm not sleeping too well either. I think it has to do with summer and the heat. Or maybe it's noisy Air Conditioners that are keeping people awake!
Password numbers are tricky. Just write the password down. You'll remember it in no time! Afterall, you recently graduated fro College. So remembering a new password should be a cinch! Allie, have you received your diploma from NYU yet? If you did, that must have been a great day for you!
