Use canvas dropcloths, not plastic
Cover carpeting with canvas dropcloths.
They’re easy to spread out, and unlike plastic,
they stay put without tape. And they won’t cause
your ladder to slip-slide on carpet. Just bunch them up
a bit along walls and they’ll stay where you want them.
Normal drips and splatter won’t soak through canvas,
but heavy spills will. Pick up the dropcloths and scoop
up spills with a broad putty knife or dustpan.
You don’t have to cover the entire floor. Drag a long, narrow “runner” around the room as you go.
