WFMW – Best Carpet Spot Remover EVER!

September 25, 2007 at 6:56 pm (Works For Me Wednesday)

I forget which friend it was who turned me on to this stuff, I think Michelle, but it is the best stuff ever. I have gotten dirt, blood, red juice, vomit and all manner of things out of the carpet with Folex Spot Remover.

I’m adding a picture of the bottle because it doesn’t have a catchy label or anything so you might miss it on the shelf. I am able to get it at my Wal-Mart. I’ve also seen it at Home Depot and their web site has a retailer locator if you need it. I believe it’s about $8 a bottle but I’ve had this bottle for about 2 years.

You squirt the spot real good, rub at it with your fingers, then blot it up with a rag.

    I love Folex too! It doesn’t have a caustic smell and works great! For stubborn stains, I use it as a pretreater and then scrub in dry carpet cleaning granules I get from the janitorial supply store.

    I’ve loved this stuff ever since you got me started on it a couple years ago. It works so well. Thanks for the great tip, Julie!

    We don’t have it with that name.
    What’s in it? Maybe it’s under a different name here.
