Carpet accidents happen, especially in households with children and pets. Spills and carpet stains are unavoidable, and carpet cleaners are regularly put to the test. I’ve tried many different brands of spot remover on my carpet stains, with disappointing results. The carpet cleaners either didn’t completely remove the carpet stains, or if they did, they made my carpet look ratty. When a friend recommended Folex Instant Carpet Spot Remover, I was skeptical. I’d never heard of this carpet stain remover with a funny name, and doubted it would perform any better than the myriad of carpet cleaners I’d already tried.
Boy, was I was wrong! I don’t know exactly how Folex Instant Carpet Spot Remover works, or why it outshines the other carpet cleaners I’ve used. But then, I don’t really need to know this; what’s important to me is that Folex removes my carpet stains easily and thoroughly. It works amazingly well, therefore I don’t question the how or why.
Folex Instant Carpet Spot Remover is a water-based, non-toxic, non-ionic surfactant. In layman’s language, this means that Folex uses water instead of solvents or toxic chemicals to safely wash away carpet stains. Unlike some oil-based carpet cleaners, Folex carpet stain remover is virtually residue free, odor free, non-flammable, and doesn’t require rinsing or vacuuming. Non-ionic means that Folex Spot Remover has neither a positive or negative electrical charge, so it won’t attract dust and dirt back to the cleaned area. Lastly, the term surfactant means that Folex is an emulsifying agent that breaks up the carpet stains so they can be removed by blotting them with a dry cloth.
Folex Instant Carpet Spot Remover is effective on virtually all carpet stains, including pet accidents, grease, ink, red wine, coffee, blood, rust, food, cosmetics, dirt and more. Folex will even remove old carpet stains, as long as they haven’t dyed or bleached the carpet fabric. Unlike many carpet cleaners, Folex Spot Remover doesn’t contain oily solvents or leave a soapy residue, so the carpet stains won’t come back.
How to Use Folex Carpet Stain Remover
Step One: Always be sure to test a hidden area of your carpet for colorfastness before using Folex to eradicate carpet stains (a corner of your closet is a good spot to test).
Step Two: Spray a generous amount of Folex Spot Remover on the stain, but do not saturate the carpet.
Step Three: Using your fingertips, gently agitate the area you’ve sprayed with the Folex Spot Remover. Don’t skip this step, as it is necessary to release the carpet stains so they can then be blotted up.
Step Four: Blot the carpet stain with a clean, absorbent cloth or paper towel. Most carpet stains will be removed with a single application of Folex Spot Remover, but some tougher stains might need a second application. As you blot, the carpet stain will disappear instantly, and is gone for good.
Folex Instant Carpet Spot Remover is not just for carpet stains, though. Folex can safely be used as a spot remover for upholstery, draperies, area rugs, car interiors and clothing (just remember to test for colorfastness first).
Folex is an easy to use, highly effective and non-toxic carpet stain remover that’s safe for use around kids and pets. There are countless carpet cleaners to choose from, but I’m sold on Folex Spot Remover, and confident that you will be too.
