This is the only room with carpet and it shows. From caked in marshmallows to spilled milk, this poor carpet takes it ALL. My children are so hard on it and no matter how much I vacuum, no matter how much I shampoo, the stains always come back. What gives?!
Apparently, I’m not the only Momma who fights this uphill battle because WD-40 has launched their new product especially for tough stains. Non-Toxic Spot Shot® Instant Carpet Stain & Odor Eliminator makes stain and odor removal incredibly easy and family friendly.
The WD-40 Company is a name I can trust because I’ve used their spray countless times on the squeaky stroller wheels. But, news to me, you can also use their spray to get gum out of long hair! Who KNEW!?
That being said, if WD-40 can get gum out of hair, I’m SURE their new Spot Shot could get stains out of my carpet. Not only that, it’s non-toxic and environmentally friendly. No worries about avoiding areas your toddler might get to. Mom Central sent over a sample bottle for me to try. After spraying the spot I’ve been scrubbing for the last 6 months, I was pleased to see it disappear immediately and has yet to come back. This is powerful stuff!
After researching their website I did find that there are two types of stains that Spot-Shot will not remove: Red Fruit Juice Dye and Rust. Red fruit juices or fruit flavored-drinks (i.e., Kool-Aid®) can contain a dye which is very difficult to remove from carpet. Rust stains are metal-based and the agent needed to remove rust (hydrofluoric acid) cannot be put in a metal container. However, Spot Shot can be effective on these stains if they are fresh and treated properly.
Hey, still great odds in this house! I rarely send my children in the playroom with red fruit juice and how the heck would rust get in there?! What stain have you been fighting lately? Is it Chocolate Milk? Spaghetti Sauce? Ketchup? Well, I tried it on all three (yes, I must admit my carpet is THAT bad) and Spot Shot got ’em out. It is officially a staple cleaner I’ll be keeping under the sink (childproofed of course).
