Hey Dbreeze, 

I still would love assistance. I'm just frequently out of town, I was trying to get my sister to the house to run these instructions but she bailed on me. I was wondering, would it be possible for me to PM you when I return home on the 25th and continue the process then? I'll be home for two weeks at that point so I can speedily keep going with the cleaning--- which has been proving effective.
