Removal - Spot Remover Kits are ideal for removing all
types of spots and stains. When removing spots, always pre-test
the spot remover on a hidden area of your carpet or fabric. Apply
a small amount and blot it with a clean white cloth. If any color
appears on your cloth or you see any color change, do not use the
spot remover. After testing, apply the spot remover to your cloth,
and then blot it onto the spot. Repeat until the spot is gone. Next,
rinse by wetting the cloth with water and blotting it onto the area.
Then, with a clean dry cloth, blot dry.
and Fabric Protection - Protectants are the perfect solution
for protecting your carpets and upholstery from soil and stains.
It also helps to extend the life of your carpets and upholstery
by making the removal of dirt easier, and by helping restore stain
blocking performance for easier food and spot removal.
