    A word of warning:

    Whilst mixing Yorkshire Pudding batter (especially in a special, sealed batter shaker), do not mix over carpet!

    If one does this and the top suddenly flies off, one will find the the lumpy, off white batter will stick to carpets, settees, clothes etc.

    When attempteing to clean the Yorkshire Pudding Mixture from carpet, one can try soapy warm water, but one will find that when the carpet dries, one will have a 'lovely' white, blotchy, mess. One can also go one step further and try a carpet stain remover, even the most expensive, brand named one, only to find once again that once dried, the said white, blotchy mess will reappear.

    Lesson, DON'T DROP YORKSHIRE PUDDING MIXTURE ONTO CARPETS.

    However, if anyone has successfully removed the above mentioned irritation, please feel free to let me know!!! :eek:

    I do know that if you get yorkshire pudding mixture, or, as it might be pancake mixture, in your hair you must stop whatever you're doing and get it out of your hair immediately. If you let it dry even slightly you will have batter in your hair until it grows out...
    Can't help with carpets I'm afraid.

    Ok, I have to ask. Why on earth would anybody be mixing yorkshire pudding batter near a settee? :confused:

    Go on, you can come clean here, (even if your carpet can't!). You were trying to do tMP at the same time as making tea weren't you?

    You know what that makes you, don't you? :biggrin:

    What on earth is one of those? Do these make really good YP? How do you get the air into the mix? Is it a bit like buying a plastic mouthpiece?

    Just use a bowl a spoon and then you'll not have the problem of the lid coming off your shaker.

    Actually, if the lid is secure!! These make excellent Yorkshire puddings. It's a tupperware make, and you just put in all the ingredients and shake. NORMALLY, we have beautiful, well risen, Yorkshire puds!

    You just have to remember to secure the lid! :eek:

    Aunt Bessie makes mine and she never makes a mess of the carpet.

    I'll ask my old man for tips about cleaning when he comes in from work-he authorises insurance claims for Allied Carpets so may have come across this problem before.

    The cleaning instructions with our carpet for spills etc were not to rub, but to soak and mop up. I generally get the affected area really wet, then trample with a dry cloth.

    Update!

    1 shampoo application, 2 Vanish carpet stain remover applications later - still noticable, although slightly faded. Perhaps after another 4 or 5 applications it will be gone, or there will be a hole in the carpet! :eek:

    I do wonder if the mark is, at least in part, left over sudsy stuff from the detergents. Have you tried soaking with lots of water and soaking up by trampling with a towel?

    How about moving a piece of furniture on top of it so it doesn't show - or a rug - then no-one would know! ;)

    Or if you are very clever you could cut the bad chunk of carpet out and cut a good chunk of carpet out of a non-noticable place (such as under sofa) and then swap the two pieces around! :p

    Don't try to sieve yorkshire pudding mix either! I swear that's what one of my housemates was trying to do...that or sieve cheese...! Nightmare to clean, we had to let the sieve soak for about a month...! :rolleyes:
