If you are considering using a dry carpet cleaning powder instead of a cleaning solution, you may be wondering how to use it correctly. First, you must remember to avoid using the powder on carpets that are wet. The powder should be spread on the carpet by using a broom or hand brush. This way, you can spread the granules evenly across the surface and into the fibers of the carpet.
To clean the powder from the carpet, you should first test a small area to make sure it will not spread. A white cloth or sponge can work wonders in this situation. First, simply wet the cloth with the soap mixture, then wring it out to remove excess water. Then, gently wipe the stained area with the cloth. Remember, you should always work in gentle motions when cleaning the carpet, as soaking the carpet will spread the stain and cause further damage.
To clean a softer carpet, you should use Capture Carpet & Rug Dry Cleaner. This works on all types of carpets, including rugs and berbers. Capture should be used on a flat carpet after applying PreMist. Its effect is maximized if the PreMist is applied first. For tighter berber construction, you may need to apply extra PreMist. Capture is a wool-safe formula that will not harm the fibers.
