Best Stain Remover … EVER!!
And as if stains themselves are not enough to deal with, then we have to find the right product for the right stain. Which one for dirt versus coffee versus blood? And which one for carpet versus upholstery versus clothing?
It truly is enough to drive any decent person insane. Add to that all the reviews out there claiming that their product is the best. Do I buy the most expensive product because the high price is in direct proportion to its cleaning capability? Or the low priced product in case I somehow buy the wrong one and don’t want to be out too much money?
Well, I have finally solved all my stain questions. Yep. Now I am going to tout the remarkable capabilities of a stain remover that works on almost any type of stain AND can be used for carpet, upholstery or clothing. I can’t believe this product isn’t all-the-rage already. Guess it’s up to me to inform the world. What is this great product you ask?
FOLEX Instant Carpet Spot Remover!
I heard about it from my sister-in-law, who pretty much knows everything there is to know about household cleaning. I can’t remember how the topic came up (naturally), but eventually I found myself the proud owner of a bottle of this miracle elixir.
I’ve used it on coffee, wine, unknown brown spots, dog urine and most recently blood from my 10 year old daughter’s foot. I’ll admit that I was mildly impressed with this stain remover before, but when I saw that blood disappear from my carpet last night I was simply bowled over. Isn’t blood supposed to be one of the hardest stains to remove? It only took one application of FOLEX and the blood vanished.
So I looked it up online to see what magical ingredient it contained. Seems it is water based. Go figure. There are no solvents, soaps or oil-based cleaners in it. It is non-toxic, non-flammable and odor-free. It does not damage the backing of your carpet or leave any sticky residues behind. It does not attract or repel dirt, so your stained area remains the same color as the rest of the carpet after the stain has been removed.
So how does it work? It is a “surfactant”. This means it is an emulsifier that reduces surface tension around the area that needs to be cleaned. Basically it surrounds the stain and breaks it up in a way that allows it to be lifted out of the carpet. And get this. You can use FOLEX to remove a stain and it will not remove any carpet protector you have previously treated your carpet with. Very mysterious indeed.
Now, I have to put a couple of disclaimers in here. One is that I, Julie Rosenfeld, am saying that this product is awesome. It is my own personal opinion based on my own personal experience. Aaron’s Quality Cleaners does not back any specific cleaning products. Two is that whatever you are using FOLEX on has to be colorfast to start with. So try it on the carpet in the back corner of your closet before chancing it on the carpet in the center of your living room.
My guess is that there are probably stain removers out there that do a better job on very specific stains. But for best-all-around the prize goes to FOLEX for its versatility, convenience, price, and “wow” factor.
And best of all, it doesn’t cost a fortune and is easy to find. I found it for quite a variety of prices and even in bulk in some cases. I actually bought mine at the local grocery store. Here are some options if you decide to give it a try:
