Another day with my sweeties at Gigi and Pa Camp! After having 9 out of the 12 of these sweet cousins in and out of my house several times a day, nearly every day over the last 5+ weeks, I knew exactly what I wanted to do today. Spot Clean the Carpet. Anna’s sister-in-law had mentioned she used the best carpet cleaner so I picked some up, gave it a try, and it totally surpassed all my expectations. It effortlessly took care of spots from an exploded gel pen, a couple places where Berkeley had an accident in the house, a little bit of baby spit up, and dirt from lots of foot traffic!
Folex upholstery and carpet cleaner is totally the real deal!
It works fast and is easy to use. Apply a generous amount of Folex to wet the stain and agitate the Folex solution with your finger. It won’t work if it is just left sitting on the stain. Then blot (don’t rub) the stain with a white paper towel or cloth. Repeat the process if the stain persists. The stain will disappear before your eyes and won’t damage your carpet or fabric! The best part is there is no rinsing required at all. I will be keeping gallon of this liquid miracle in my house at all times (I’ve even started using it on laundry stains).
FOLEX is not a soap, so you do not need to add a defoamer.
FOLEX will not leave a sticky residue, so you do not have to rinse.
FOLEX is not a solvent, so your carpet backing will not be damaged.
FOLEX is “Non-Ionic”, so it will not attract dirt back to the cleaned area.
FOLEX is “Non-Toxic”, so your newly cleaned carpet is safe for your children and pets.
After seeing Folex remove the exploded gel pen spots I was reminded of a huge spot left by the previous owners. It had been covered up and we didn’t know about it until move-in day. That first week, I scrubbed on the stain with Oxi Clean and tried out a Magic Eraser. This is as good as it got. Since the stain is in the boys room where I don’t hang out a ton, it isn’t a constant bug, but it is a bummer!
Knowing that a permanent marker stain over a year old didn’t have much of a chance, I gave Folex a try! Want to see the results!?!
Definitely not perfect, but MUCH BETTER!
In the pic above, the boys bin organizer helps cover the spot a bit and also helps the boys help me keep their room picked up. Check out these free printable labels and how to get them to stay on your bins (here).
Just like any cleaner, make sure to test for the color stability of whatever you’re treating with Folex by spraying a dot of it in an inconspicuous area. Find Folex (here).
