We may have just moved into our new home in December but with a toddler (and a messy husband!) it's inevitable that our carpet won't remain immaculate for long. I've tried a long list of products for my carpets over the years and I've been disappointed by almost all of them. They either fail to remove stains at all or they work but leave behind a stiff residue that cannot be vacuumed away. So, when I was offered the chance to review a carpet cleaner spray, I was hopeful I could keep my brand new carpets looking brand new. How could I say no?!
Carpet CPR Spot & Stain Remover deep cleans and repels dirt from your carpet while eliminating odors. It works for red wine, pet stains, food stains, fruit juice, dirt, grease, coffee/tea, lipstick, ink and more. This award-winning cleaner has even received a Seal of Approval from the Carpet and Rug Institute. They also offer a 100% money-back guarantee to ensure your satisfaction.
I received a full-size sample of Carpet CPR to review.
As I mentioned, our carpet is only a few months old, so we don't yet have any horrific stains. However, due to having lots of company and traffic through our living room, we do have some soiled spots that need some attention. Carpet CPR to the rescue! The directions are pretty straightforward: spray directly onto the stain(s), wait 3-5 minutes and blot with a clean colorfast cloth. The spray came out like a fine mist, which I appreciated. The scent was very light and hardly noticeable unless you press your nose to the carpet. I waited approximately 3-4 minutes and wiped clean with a white cloth. I was amazed! The stains practically melted away! The carpet was slightly damp from the fluid but after a good vacuuming, they looked and felt as good as they did the day of our walk-through. No stiffness. No smearing. No soggy mess. Just fresh, clean carpets! If you don't believe me, just see for yourself:
Before (I have circled the living room stains in question)
After (the above stains have completely disappeared!)
With a product like this, I don't see why I'd need to invest in a steam cleaner. It's easy to use and really works miracles on dirt and food stains. The only thing that could make this product better would be to disclose the contents and/or use natural ingredients. I'm not fond of using harsh chemicals in areas where my baby plays. However, since I am only using this in small, select areas and because it dries so quickly, I am comfortable with it.
Bottom line: Resuscitate your carpets with Carpet CPR. STAT.
