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?

RE: Best solution for carpet cleaning machine?

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!

RE: Best solution for carpet cleaning machine?

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.
