Carpet Cleaning Solution

brightonbornNovember 16, 2012

I cannot remember if it was here , or on another garden web forum where somebody was raving about a product that they used in their carpet cleaning machine. I think, not positive, that it began with a K.

Anybody know what the name of this product is..I have got to clean carpet this weekend. Thanks.

I recall someone mentioning Folex. It is in a white bottle, I believe. I'm thinking the poster had a family member responsible for keeping the carpeting clean in a commercial environment.

...another Folex user here... It saved my granddaughter's life - she used a sharpie perminent marker on my week old carpet - the Folex removed it all! She was going to be toast if I hadn't been able to remove it... I used it to remove blood on a white silk purse even. The Bellagio in Vegas uses it in its carpet cleaners too.

Folex is great. Mix in some Odoban (from Home Depot). We get Folex at Lowes. That's the combination we use in our steam cleaner for our carpeting.

Odoban...will get that as well. Is it 1 part Folex to 6 water for the steam cleaner?

You can easily make a home-made spot cleaner. Mix equal parts water and hydrogen peroxide, plus a squirt of Dawn detergent. Be careful, make it in a big container because it foams up. Dip your scrub brush in the foam, and use a little liquid. Works great on any mess a pet can make.

I went to my Lowes and they didn't have it, very disappointed. So I traveled down the road to Home Depot and voila...they had two bottles left and I bought both. I was very happy to see it..I can tell you that. The carpet is only two years old and is off white...so even though it looks great I can't wait to see how it comes out with the Folex.
