  • FOLEX! It works like magic, and just happens to be non-toxic. It is the only thing that will get wine or grape juice out. I even use it on upholstered furniture.

    LOVE the stuff. I had a landlord turn me onto it when I was a young renter, and I have been hooked on it ever since.

  • Personally those never work for me. The rug doctor on the other hand works miracles! They sell the cleaners separately...good luck!

  • I bought a Bissell pro-heat. I use hot water and flip the switch for the extra heat. I put laundry detergent, fabric softener and a little bleach if it's a light carpet and away I go. The only thing I have not been able to remove is a purple stain that no one seems to know what it is. Someone knows though, the carpets were installed new when I bought the house.

  • Personally, I'd get rid of the dog. Clean all u want, people coming into ur home will still smell it.

  • Nature's Miracle works on all types of stains - even though it's supposed to be used for pet messes. I even use it to get food stains off of kid clothes.
