Help! I am addicted to Spot Shot

mirindasJanuary 2, 2010

I have two cats and cream carpet and I love how quick and easy Spot Shot gets out hairball stains. But I would really like something more natural. Also  I am sure the fumes cannot be healthy. Cheaper would be good as well as I go through the cans quite quickly.

Thanks for your help!

IMO, you can't beat Spot Shot. But I have friends who love Resolve carpet cleaner. The rug cleaner I hired recommended using regular dishwashing soap for carpet stains.

I've posted this recipe before. it really works great on any carpet, even old stains. Mix one bottle of hydrogen peroxide (about 99 cents), half again as much plain water (need not use hot H20), and a good squirt of Dawn dishwashing liquid. Stir and pour on stains, rub with a clean washcloth and blot as much of it as you can. This mixture cannot be stored, so discard the excess or make a smaller batch.
