mattresscleaning There is no perfect cleaner that will work for everything. Depending on the stain and type of fabric you have to use the appropriate product.

All-Purpose Cleaner

White vinegar is one of the most versatile natural cleaning products you can have. It can be used in so many ways to keep your home free of mold, excess bacteria, and, sparkling clean. In fact, experts say that using vinegar is just as effective as chemicals if not more so. By combining it with another non-toxic natural cleaning agent like baking soda, you can use it to clean just about anything. Baking soda and white vinegar make the ideal all-purpose cleaner – just add tea tree or lemon essential oil and it will have the ability to disinfect too.

To make it you’ll need the following:
  1. 1/2 cup white vinegar
  2. 2 tbsp baking soda
  3. 10 drops lemon or tea tree essential oil – we recommend Essential Oils for their purity and price.
  4. First, combine the vinegar and essential oils in a spray bottle, and then add the baking soda and mix well. Add water to fill the bottle to the top. Gently shake to mix all ingredients. When ready to use, simply spray the area you’d likely to clean and then wipe it with a cloth.

John Bolton Procycon is based on sodium tripolyphosphate. Though I have never used that particular product the dispersal technology that it employs is effective against a wide range of soils, and because it requires only a fresh-water rinse, you can be confident in not leaving any soil-attracting residue on the fabric being cleaned.

To get the best result may require a little re-thinking on cleaning technique but the effort is certainly worthwhile.

Joey D I have used Matrix products from Jon Don. Also Pro choice SCR Soil Crystallizing Rinse and pro powder 2000. Very good on commercial carpets to prevent wicking and resoiling. Going to try Envirox Carpet complete when we run out of pros choice products.

ProFresh You can never go wrong with Prchem products for carpet cleaning anyway. I have used them for 20 years tryed others always go back to them.

t.peterson I use the Arsenal line of products since they are green

Are you thinking about where we were talking about cutting costs on supplies and I said that I use the Arsenal restroom cleaner/ disinfectant from Hillyard. With our alliances discount one (1) gallon bottle of concentrate equates to 33 gallons of finished product once water is added at the cost of $0.597 a gallon (or $0.149 a quart)?

Don't get me in to a fight within myself. lol Hillyard gets lots of my money but Procyon kicks butt. I've never tried Suprox though.

Theresa...the other day on the other board we were talking and you said what you used as your basic cleaner (I currently use Germicidal #1019 from Hillyard). What was the name of it again?
11-06-2006 08:55 AM
Cleaning Superman Suprox is the name. The label has instructions on how to use with carpet.
11-05-2006 02:21 PM
t.peterson Are you referring to Suprox? It is in Hillyards Arsenel line of products
11-05-2006 12:47 PM
Cleaning Superman I use a powdered cleaner(will look up the name) and a compatible peroxide based booster from Hillyard(very light dilution). Theresa knows the name.

sprintcar93 Easy answer....Procyon. It IS soap FREE which makes it even better! No other chemical needed when using Procyon.

What is the PERFECT cleaner??

Hi all!
I have had this debate for a while, but cannot find the one and true answer. Here is what I have tried and have known of:

1. Simple laundry detergent. From the "cheapo" files.......

2. Heavy stains: 1 part Oxyclean powder , 6 parts baking soda. Scrub w/ heavy brush and hot water untill stain is absorbed into mixture, then extract w/ machine. My own concocktion.

3. rub stain w/ lemon and salt. Never tried this.

I currently use bridgepoint products, but I need something better. I have tried zep line, no better at all. I know a company using a mixture that is black in color, smells like orange citrus, and makes your eyes water like cutting onions, when pre-sprayed on the carpet. This stuff works!!! But I cant get the name, I think its home-grown , like MOONSHINE.
What you guys and gals say???
