Well thanks to Mamabuzz and KIDS N' PETS I was given an opportunity to try an all purpose cleaner. I thought "this is great I have messy kids and messy pets"( my dog has taken over the position of pukiest family member lately). Then I received the bottle of KIDS N' PETS all purpose stain and odor remover and instantly remembered this was exactly what I used to use before owning the carpet cleaner. This was great! Lately I have been thinking of getting a small handheld carpet cleaner as I am sick of lugging out the big one for just one or two spots. Even those little ones are expensive though. So I had a few spots on the carpet left by my son, and some grubby spots on the arms of my couch. I am terrible about letting him have snacks and drinks in the livingroom, and he is terrible about leaving the evidence behind!
So I followed the directions on the bottle which said to put on the spots, let sit for 5 minutes and then blot area with clean white cloth. Well I should have taken a pic of the three white clothes, they were pretty gross when I was finished. Yep lots of brown, as my son gets lots of chocolate type items like ice cream, chocolate milk and pudding.
Before pics of carpet spots and couch:
The carpet cleaner comes in a squirt type bottle. It was easy to use on the carpet, and the spots on the carpet came right out, first time! I even had a spot that I forgot to take a picture of that looked like a solid piece of chocolate(maybe a chocolate chip) that I squirted on and it came right out! Love it! The arms of the couch were tougher. I am going to go back and retreat these pouring some of the cleaner in a spray bottle instead of the original container. When I put it on the arms it would soak the top but then run down the sides and was harder to get the specific areas I wanted. The stains were also larger and more set in. The bottle also says you can use it for carpet machines, so I may try that also. As you can see in the pictures there is still areas on the arms of the couch that need cleaning, but it really did help. I can see in the center areas that it got some of the stuff out. Also like I said before the white clothes were really brown...so I probably should have kept cleaning until they became clearer. I think the ring was more of where the liquid cleaner stopped, and I should have done more cleaning. This was the worse spot, the other three arms which of course I didnt take before pics of came mostly clean.
Overall I am definitely going to be picking up some more of KIDS N' PETS, as it was so much easier cleaning up those couple spots and I didnt have to put much effort into "scrubbing", just squirt, let sit, and blot. I will be checking out some of the other items they now offer too, like the carpet cleaning powder which sounds great for our basement.
