Sooo my carpet is wet. Not damp, or slightly moist(shudder), but WET. I can't walk on it in socks because it makes my socks wet. I can't not wear socks because I'm COLD. I have to put on shoes any time I want to step off my bed. I'm really not sure if wet carpet is a good trade-off for clean carpet. I'll let you know once it dries.
