Best solution for carpet cleaning machine?

gardenfanaticSeptember 10, 2009

I'm going to rent a carpet cleaning machine. I have kids and 4 animals, so I need a carpet cleaning solution that can clean seriously dirty carpet. Suggestions?

I've had really good results with Zep Premium Carpet and Upholstery shampoo. I believe I got it at Lowe's.
When we moved to this house the carpets were quite dirty. I steam cleaned them twice--once to get clean and once to make me feel better about walking on them with bare feet! The cleaner works very well, and smells good, too!

Do you recall what you paid for the Zep, and for what size bottle?

Buy the gallon size at the hardware store. I use Folex too and then keep it in a spray bottle to use on spots and to spot my laundry too.
